CodeSystemDisplayDefinition
Uhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ConfidentialityunrestrictedDefinition: Privacy metadata indicating that the information is not classified as sensitive. Examples: Includes publicly available information, e.g., business name, phone, email or physical address. Usage Note: This metadata indicates that the receiver has no obligation to consider additional policies when making access control decisions. Note that in some jurisdictions, personally identifiable information must be protected as confidential, so it would not be appropriate to assign a confidentiality code of "unrestricted" to that information even if it is publicly available.
Lhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ConfidentialitylowDefinition: Privacy metadata indicating that the information has been de-identified, and there are mitigating circumstances that prevent re-identification, which minimize risk of harm from unauthorized disclosure. The information requires protection to maintain low sensitivity. Examples: Includes anonymized, pseudonymized, or non-personally identifiable information such as HIPAA limited data sets. Map: No clear map to ISO 13606-4 Sensitivity Level (1) Care Management: RECORD_COMPONENTs that might need to be accessed by a wide range of administrative staff to manage the subject of care's access to health services. Usage Note: This metadata indicates the receiver may have an obligation to comply with a data use agreement.
Mhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ConfidentialitymoderateDefinition: Privacy metadata indicating moderately sensitive information, which presents moderate risk of harm if disclosed without authorization. Examples: Includes allergies of non-sensitive nature used inform food service; health information a patient authorizes to be used for marketing, released to a bank for a health credit card or savings account; or information in personal health record systems that are not governed under health privacy laws. Map: Partial Map to ISO 13606-4 Sensitivity Level (2) Clinical Management: Less sensitive RECORD_COMPONENTs that might need to be accessed by a wider range of personnel not all of whom are actively caring for the patient (e.g. radiology staff). Usage Note: This metadata indicates that the receiver may be obligated to comply with the receiver's terms of use or privacy policies.
Nhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ConfidentialitynormalDefinition: Privacy metadata indicating that the information is typical, non-stigmatizing health information, which presents typical risk of harm if disclosed without authorization. Examples: In the US, this includes what HIPAA identifies as the minimum necessary protected health information (PHI) given a covered purpose of use (treatment, payment, or operations). Includes typical, non-stigmatizing health information disclosed in an application for health, workers compensation, disability, or life insurance. Map: Partial Map to ISO 13606-4 Sensitivity Level (3) Clinical Care: Default for normal clinical care access (i.e. most clinical staff directly caring for the patient should be able to access nearly all of the EHR). Maps to normal confidentiality for treatment information but not to ancillary care, payment and operations. Usage Note: This metadata indicates that the receiver may be obligated to comply with applicable jurisdictional privacy law or disclosure authorization.
Rhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ConfidentialityrestrictedPrivacy metadata indicating highly sensitive, potentially stigmatizing information, which presents a high risk to the information subject if disclosed without authorization. May be pre-empted by jurisdictional law, e.g., for public health reporting or emergency treatment. Examples: Includes information that is additionally protected such as sensitive conditions mental health, HIV, substance abuse, domestic violence, child abuse, genetic disease, and reproductive health; or sensitive demographic information such as a patient's standing as an employee or a celebrity. May be used to indicate proprietary or classified information that is not related to an individual, e.g., secret ingredients in a therapeutic substance; or the name of a manufacturer. Map: Partial Map to ISO 13606-4 Sensitivity Level (3) Clinical Care: Default for normal clinical care access (i.e. most clinical staff directly caring for the patient should be able to access nearly all of the EHR). Maps to normal confidentiality for treatment information but not to ancillary care, payment and operations.. Usage Note: This metadata indicates that the receiver may be obligated to comply with applicable, prevailing (default) jurisdictional privacy law or disclosure authorization..
Vhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-Confidentialityvery restricted. Privacy metadata indicating that the information is extremely sensitive and likely stigmatizing health information that presents a very high risk if disclosed without authorization. This information must be kept in the highest confidence. Examples: Includes information about a victim of abuse, patient requested information sensitivity, and taboo subjects relating to health status that must be discussed with the patient by an attending provider before sharing with the patient. May also include information held under “legal lock� or attorney-client privilege Map: This metadata indicates that the receiver may not disclose this information except as directed by the information custodian, who may be the information subject. Usage Note: This metadata indicates that the receiver may not disclose this information except as directed by the information custodian, who may be the information subject.

SecurityPolicyhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCodesecurity policyTypes of security policies that further specify the ActClassPolicy value set. Examples: obligation to encrypt refrain from redisclosure without consent
AUTHPOLhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCodeauthorization policyAuthorisation policies are essentially security policies related to access-control and specify what activities a subject is permitted or forbidden to do, to a set of target objects. They are designed to protect target objects so are interpreted by access control agents or the run-time systems at the target system. A positive authorisation policy defines the actions that a subject is permitted to perform on a target. A negative authorisation policy specifies the actions that a subject is forbidden to perform on a target. Positive authorisation policies may also include filters to transform the parameters associated with their actions. (Based on PONDERS)
ACCESSCONSCHEMEhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCodeaccess control schemeAn access control policy specific to the type of access control scheme, which is used to enforce one or more authorization policies. Usage Note: Access control schemes are the type of access control policy, which is comprised of access control policy rules concerning the provision of the access control service. There are two categories of access control policies, rule-based and identity-based, which are identified in CCITT Rec. X.800 aka ISO 7498-2. Rule-based access control policies are intended to apply to all access requests by any initiator on any target in a security domain. Identity-based access control policies are based on rules specific to an individual initiator, a group of initiators, entities acting on behalf of initiators, or originators acting in a specific role. Context can modify rule-based or identity-based access control policies. Context rules may define the entire policy in effect. Real systems will usually employ a combination of these policy types; if a rule-based policy is used, then an identity-based policy is usually in effect also. An access control scheme may be based on access control lists, capabilities, labels, and context or a combination of these. An access control scheme is a component of an access control mechanism or "service") along with the supporting mechanisms required by that scheme to provide access control decision information (ADI) supplied by the scheme to the access decision facility (ADF also known as a PDP). (Based on ISO/IEC 10181-3:1996) Examples: Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) Discretionary Access Control (DAC) History Based Access Control (HBAC) Identity Based Access Control (IBAC) Mandatory Access Control (MAC) Organization Based Access Control (OrBAC) Relationship Based Access Control (RelBac) Responsibility Based Access Control (RespBAC) Risk Adaptable Access Control (RAdAC) >
DELEPOLhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCodedelegation policyDelegation policies specify which actions subjects are allowed to delegate to others. A delegation policy thus specifies an authorisation to delegate. Subjects must already possess the access rights to be delegated. Delegation policies are aimed at subjects delegating rights to servers or third parties to perform actions on their behalf and are not meant to be the means by which security administrators would assign rights to subjects. A negative delegation policy identifies what delegations are forbidden. A Delegation policy specifies the authorisation policy from which delegated rights are derived, the grantors, which are the entities which can delegate these access rights, and the grantees, which are the entities to which the access rights can be delegated. There are two types of delegation policy, positive and negative. (Based on PONDERS)
ObligationPolicyhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCodeobligation policyConveys the mandated workflow action that an information custodian, receiver, or user must perform. Usage Notes: Per ISO 22600-2, ObligationPolicy instances 'are event-triggered and define actions to be performed by manager agent'. Per HL7 Composite Security and Privacy Domain Analysis Model: This value set refers to the action required to receive the permission specified in the privacy rule. Per OASIS XACML, an obligation is an operation specified in a policy or policy that is performed in conjunction with the enforcement of an access control decision.

HUAPRVhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCodehuman approvalCustodian system must require human review and approval for permission requested.
LABELhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCodeassign security labelCustodian security system must assign and bind security labels in order to classify information created in the information systems under its control for collection, access, use and disclosure in accordance with applicable jurisdictional privacy policies associated with the target information. The system must retain an immutable record of the assignment and binding. Usage Note: In security systems, security policy label assignments do not change, they may supersede prior assignments, and such reassignments are always tracked for auditing and other purposes.
MASKhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCodemaskCustodian system must render information unreadable and unusable by algorithmically transforming plaintext into ciphertext. User may be provided a key to decrypt per license or "shared secret".
MINEChttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCodeminimum necessaryCustodian must limit access and disclosure to the minimum information required to support an authorized user's purpose of use.

Explicitly excludes the use of information to organize the delivery of health care for care coordination and case management, or to provide healthcare treatment. Usage Note: Examples of activities conducted under this purpose of use: provider profiling, risk adjustment, underwriting, fraud and abuse, quality improvement population health and care management. Aligns with HIPAA Operation POU minus coordination of care or other treatment related activities. Similar to the description in SAMHSA Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorder Patient Records Supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking. Map: Maps to ISO 14265 Classification Term "Administration of care for an individual subject of care" described as "To inform persons or processes responsible for enabling the availability of resources or funding or permissions for providing health care services to the subject of care." However, this classification term is described as activities, i.e., "to inform persons" or "to inform processes" rather than the rationale for performing actions/operations on information related to the activity.

Label management includes classification of target data by constructing and binding of a label set per applicable policies, security policy information file semantics, and classification guides. Label management also includes process and procedures for subsequent revision of a label for, e.g., reclassification, downgrading classification, and declassification. Label revisions may be triggered by, e.g., expiry of classification period; changes in applicable policy, e.g., revocation of a consent directive; or changes in the governing policy domain in which the data is relocated or a copy of the data is sent. If a label is revised, an audit log should be kept and the provenance of the label changes should be tracked.

COChttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActReasoncoordination of careTo perform one or more actions on information in order to organize the provision and case management of an individual’s healthcare, including: Monitoring a person's goals, needs, and preferences; acting as the communication link between two or more participants concerned with a person's health and wellness; organizing and facilitating care activities and promoting self-management by advocating for, empowering, and educating a person; and ensuring safe, appropriate, non-duplicative, and effective integrated care. Usage Note: Use when describing these functions: 1. Monitoring a person’s goals, needs, and preferences. 2. Acting as the communication link between two or more participants concerned with a person's health and wellness. 3. Organizing and facilitating care activities and promoting self-management by advocating for, empowering, and educating a person. 4. Ensuring safe, appropriate, non-duplicative, and effective integrated care. The goal is to clearly differentiate this type of coordination of care from HIPAA Operations by specifying that these actions on information are undertaken in the provision of healthcare treatment. For similar uses of this concept, see SAMHSA Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorder Patient Records Supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking, which differentiates concepts of care coordination and case management for the provision of treatment as specifically distinct from activities related to health care delivery management and the operations of organizational entities involved in the delivery of healthcare. Map: Maps to ISO 14265 Classification Terms: "Support of care activities within the provider organisation for an individual subject of care" described as "To inform persons or processes enabling others to provide health care services to the subject of care." "Subject of Care Uses" described as "To inform the subject of care in support of his or her own interests."
ETREAThttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActReasonEmergency TreatmentTo perform one or more operations on information for provision of immediately needed health care for an emergent condition.
BTGhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActReasonbreak the glassTo perform policy override operations on information for provision of immediately needed health care for an emergent condition affecting potential harm, death or patient safety by end users who are not provisioned for this purpose of use. Includes override of organizational provisioning policies and may include override of subject of care consent directive restricting access. Map: Partially Maps to ISO 14265 Classification Term "Emergency care provision to an individual subject of care" described as "To inform persons needing to provide health care services to the subject of care urgently, possibly needing to over-ride the policies and consents pertaining to Purpose 1 above." Purpose 1 is equivalent to HL7 treatment purpose of use: "Clinical care provision to an individual subject of care" described as "To inform persons or processes responsible for providing health care services to the subject of care." The ISO description conflates both of the proposed specializations of HL7 ETREAT: break the glass and the typically broader access to health information normally available to providers who are provisioned for emergency workflows on a regular basis, e.g., Emergency Room providers. Examples of greater access than is normally accessible by providers based on the need to know are access to sensitive information for which access typically requires a patient's consent. This is not an override of a patient's dissent to disclose sensitive information in cases where the applicable policy waives the need for that consent to access this information. In US, Title 38 Section 7332 and 42 CFR Part 2 both permit emergency access without the need to override a patient's consent directive; rather, this access is a limitation to the patient's right to dissent from disclosure.
ERTREAThttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActReasonemergency room treatmentTo perform one or more operations on information for provision of immediately needed health care for an emergent condition in an emergency room or similar emergent care context by end users provisioned for this purpose, which does not constitute as policy override such as in a "Break the Glass" purpose of use. Map:Partially Maps to ISO 14265 Classification Term "Emergency care provision to an individual subject of care" described as "To inform persons needing to provide health care services to the subject of care urgently, possibly needing to over-ride the policies and consents pertaining to Purpose 1 above." Purpose 1 is equivalent to HL7 treatment purpose of use: "Clinical care provision to an individual subject of care" described as "To inform persons or processes responsible for providing health care services to the subject of care." The ISO description conflates both of the proposed specializations of HL7 ETREAT: break the glass and the typically broader access to health information normally available to providers who are provisioned for emergency workflows on a regular basis, e.g., Emergency Room providers.

In US, Title 38 Section 7332 and 42 CFR Part 2 both permit emergency access without the need to override a patient's consent directive; rather, this access is a limitation to the patient's right to dissent from disclosure. There is a semantic gap in concepts. This classification term is described as activities “to inform persons� rather than the rationale for performing actions/operations on information related to the activity.
