ONC’s Office of the Chief Privacy Officer and Office of Standards and Interoperability are launching an initiative to address standards for the ability to exchange parts of a medical record (often called data segmentation). The initiative is under the auspices of the ONC Standards & Interoperability Framework.

In a recent Health IT Buzz blog post, Dr. Farzad Mostashari stated:

This project aims to make progress on the persistent privacy issues raised in the PCAST report. The goal of this project is to enable the implementation and management of health information disclosure policies originating from a patient’s request, statutory and regulatory authority or organizational disclosure requirements.

There will be a “soft launch” of the Data Segmentation Initiative on Monday, September 19, 2011. It will consist of:
• Public call for participation notice emailed to Government and industry stakeholders;
• Wiki home page for initiative; and
• ONC blog post.

The formal launch of the Data Segmentation Initiative is scheduled for October 5, 2011 and will consist of a public webinar/presentation with a question and answer session.
