U http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-Confidentiality unrestricted Definition: Privacy metadata indicating that the information no level of protection is not classified as sensitive. required to safeguard personal and healthcare information that has been disclosed by an authorized individual without restrictions on its use. Examples: Includes publicly available information, information e.g., business name, phone, email or and physical address. Usage Note: The authorization to collect, access, use, and disclose this information may be stipulated in a contract of adhesion by a data user (e.g., via terms of service or data user privacy policies) in exchange for the data subject's use of a service. This metadata indicates that the receiver has no obligation to consider additional privacy policies other than its own when making access control decisions. Note This metadata indicates that in some jurisdictions, personally identifiable information must be protected as confidential, so it would not be appropriate the receiver has no obligation to assign a confidentiality consider privacy policies other than its own when making access control decisions. Confidentiality code of "unrestricted" to that information even if it total order hierarchy: Unrestricted (U) is publicly available. less protective than V, R, N, M, and L, and is the lowest protection levels.
L http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-Confidentiality low Definition: Privacy metadata indicating that the information has been de-identified, a low level of protection is required to safeguard personal and there are mitigating circumstances that prevent re-identification, healthcare information, which has been altered in such a way as to minimize the need for confidentiality protections with some residual risks associated with re-linking. The risk of harm from unauthorized disclosure. to an individual's reputation and sense of privacy if disclosed without authorization is considered negligible, and mitigations are in place to address reidentification risk. Usage Note: The information requires level of protection to maintain low sensitivity. Examples: Includes anonymized, afforded anonymized and pseudonymized, or and non-personally identifiable information such as HIPAA (e.g., a limited data sets. Map: No clear map set) is dictated by privacy policies and data use agreements intended to ISO 13606-4 Sensitivity Level (1) Care Management: RECORD_COMPONENTs engender trust that might need to health information can be accessed used and disclosed with little or no risk of re-identification. Example: Personal and healthcare information, which excludes 16 designated categories of direct identifiers in a HIPAA Limited Data Set. This information may be disclosed by HIPAA Covered Entities without patient authorization for a wide range of administrative staff to manage research, public health, and operations purposes if conditions are met, which includes obtaining a signed data use agreement from the subject of care's access to health services. Usage Note: recipient. See 45 CFR Section 164.514. This metadata indicates that the receiver may have an obligation to comply with a data use agreement. agreement with the discloser. The discloser may have obligations to comply with policies dictating the methods for de-identification. Confidentiality code total order hierarchy: Low (L) is less protective than V, R, N, and M, and subsumes U.
M http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-Confidentiality moderate Definition: Privacy metadata indicating moderately sensitive the level of protection required to safeguard personal and healthcare information, which presents if disclosed without authorization, would present a moderate risk of harm if disclosed to an individual's reputation and sense of privacy. Usage Note: The level of protection afforded moderately confidential information is dictated by privacy policies intended to engender trust in a service provider. May include publicly available information in jurisdictions that restrict uses of that information without authorization. Examples: Includes allergies the consent of non-sensitive nature the data subject. Privacy policies mandating moderate levels of protection, which preempt less protective privacy policies. "Moderate" confidentiality policies differ from and would be preempted by the prevailing privacy policies mandating the normative level of protection for information used inform food service; in the delivery and management of healthcare. Confidentiality code total order hierarchy: Moderate (M) is less protective than V, R, and N, and subsumes all other protection levels (i.e., L and U). Examples: Includes personal and health information a patient that an individual authorizes to be collected, accessed, used for marketing, released or disclosed 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 health oversight authorities; to be accessed by a wider range of personnel not all of whom are actively caring for the hospital patient (e.g. radiology staff). Usage Note: This metadata indicates that the receiver may be obligated directory; to comply with the receiver's terms of use worker compensation, disability, property and casualty or privacy policies. life insurers; and to personal health record systems, consumer-controlled devices, social media accounts and online Apps; or for marketing purposes

Usage Note: The level of protection afforded normatively confidential information disclosed is dictated by the prevailing normative privacy policies, which are intended to engender patient trust in an application their healthcare providers. Privacy policies mandating normative levels of protection, which preempt less protective privacy policies when the information is used in the delivery and management of healthcare. May be pre-empted by jurisdictional law (e.g., for health, workers compensation, disability, public health reporting or life insurance. Map: Partial emergency treatment). Confidentiality code total order hierarchy: Normal (N) is less protective than V and R, and subsumes all other protection levels (i.e., M, L, and U). Map:Partial Map to ISO 13606-4 Sensitivity Level (3) Clinical Care: Care when purpose of use is treatment: Default for normal clinical care access (i.e. (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.

R http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-Confidentiality restricted Privacy metadata indicating highly sensitive, the level of protection required to safeguard potentially stigmatizing information, which presents if disclosed without authorization, would present a high risk of harm to an individual's reputation and sense of privacy. Usage Note: The level of protection afforded restricted confidential information is dictated by specially protective organizational or jurisdictional privacy policies, including at an authorized individual’s request, intended to engender patient trust in providers of sensitive services. Privacy policies mandating additional levels of protection by restricting information access preempt less protective privacy policies when the information subject if disclosed without authorization. is used in the delivery and management of healthcare. May be pre-empted by jurisdictional law, e.g., law (e.g., for public health reporting or emergency treatment. treatment). Confidentiality code total order hierarchy: Restricted (R) is less protective than V, and subsumes all other protection levels (i.e., N, M, L, and U).

Usage Note: The level of protection afforded very restricted confidential information is dictated by specially protective privacy or legal policies intended to ensure that presents under atypical circumstances additional protections limit access to only those with a very high risk if disclosed without authorization. This 'need to know' and the information must be is kept in highest confidence.. Privacy and legal policies mandating the highest confidence. level of protection by stringently restricting information access, preempt less protective privacy policies when the information is used in the delivery and management of healthcare including legal proceedings related to healthcare. May be pre-empted by jurisdictional law (e.g., for public health reporting or emergency treatment but only under limited circumstances).

_InformationSensitivityPolicy http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode InformationSensitivityPolicy A mandate, obligation, requirement, rule, or expectation characterizing the receiver value or importance of a resource and may not disclose this include its vulnerability. (Based on ISO7498-2:1989. Note: The vulnerability of personally identifiable sensitive information except as directed may be based on concerns that the unauthorized disclosure may result in social stigmatization or discrimination.) Description: Types of Sensitivity policy that apply to Acts or Roles. A sensitivity policy is adopted by an enterprise or group of enterprises (a 'policy domain') through a formal data use agreement that stipulates the value, importance, and vulnerability of information. A sensitivity code representing a sensitivity policy may be associated with criteria such as categories of information custodian, who or sets of information identifiers (e.g., a value set of clinical codes or branch in a code system hierarchy). These criteria may in turn be used for the Policy Decision Point in a Security Engine. A sensitivity code may be used to set the confidentiality code used on information subject. Usage Note: This metadata indicates that about Acts and Roles to trigger the receiver security mechanisms required to control how security principals (i.e., a person, a machine, a software application) may not disclose this act on the information except (e.g., collection, access, use, or disclosure). Sensitivity codes are never assigned to the transport or business envelope containing patient specific information being exchanged outside of a policy domain as directed this would disclose the information intended to be protected by the policy. When sensitive information custodian, is exchanged with others outside of a policy domain, the confidentiality code on the transport or business envelope conveys the receiver's responsibilities and indicates the how the information is to be safeguarded without unauthorized disclosure of the sensitive information. This ensures that sensitive information is treated by receivers as the sender intends, accomplishing interoperability without point to point negotiations. Usage Note: Sensitivity codes are not useful for interoperability outside of a policy domain because sensitivity policies are typically localized and vary drastically across policy domains even for the same information category because of differing organizational business rules, security policies, and jurisdictional requirements. For example, an employee's sensitivity code would make little sense for use outside of a policy domain. 'Taboo' would rarely be useful outside of a policy domain unless there are jurisdictional requirements requiring that a provider disclose sensitive information to a patient directly. Sensitivity codes may be more appropriate in a legacy system's Master Files in order to notify those who access a patient's orders and observations about the sensitivity policies that apply. Newer systems may have a security engine that uses a sensitivity policy's criteria directly. The specializable InformationSensitivityPolicy Act.code may be useful in some scenarios if used in combination with a sensitivity identifier and/or Act.title.
_ActInformationSensitivityPolicy http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode ActInformationSensitivityPolicy Types of sensitivity policies that apply to Acts. Act.confidentialityCode is defined in the RIM as "constraints around appropriate disclosure of information subject. about this Act, regardless of mood." Usage Note: ActSensitivity codes are used to bind information to an Act.confidentialityCode according to local sensitivity policy so that those confidentiality codes can then govern its handling across enterprises. Internally to a policy domain, however, local policies guide the access control system on how end users in that policy domain are able to use information tagged with these sensitivity values.

SecurityPolicy http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode security policy Types of security policies that further specify the ActClassPolicy value set. Examples: obligation to encrypt refrain from redisclosure without consent
AUTHPOL http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode authorization policy Authorisation 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)
ACCESSCONSCHEME http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode access control scheme An 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) >
DELEPOL http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode delegation policy Delegation 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)

The content of the privacy-mark may be defined by the security policy in force (identified by the security-policy-identifier) which may define a list of values to be used. Alternately, the value may be determined by the originator of the security-label."
PSEUD http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode pseudonymize Custodian system must strip information of data that would allow the identification of the source of the information or the information subject. Custodian may retain a key to relink data necessary to reidentify the information subject.
REDACT http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode redact Custodian system must remove information, which is not authorized to be access, used, or disclosed from records made available to otherwise authorized users.
UPGRDLABEL http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode upgrade security label Custodian security system must declassify information assigned security labels by instantiating a new version of the classified information so as to break the binding of the classifying security label when assigning a new security label that marks the information as classified at a more protected level in accordance with applicable jurisdictional privacy policies associated with the target information. The system must retain an immutable record of the previous assignment and binding.
PrivacyMark http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode privacy mark An abstract code for human readable marks indicating, e.g., the level of confidentiality protection, an authorized compartment, the integrity, or the handling instruction required by applicable policy. Such markings must be displayed as directed by applicable policy on electronically rendered information content and any electronic transmittal envelope or container; or on hardcopy information and any physical transmittal envelope or container. Examples of protocols for marking displays on electronic or hardcopy rendered content: Across the top or "banner" of each page ; as a watermark placed diagonally cross each page; at the bottom or "footer" of each page; and may be displayed at the beginning of any portion within the content that required markings different than other portions of the content. The banner or top of page marking typically acts as a "high watermark" by including all of the markings made on any marked portions within the entirety of the information content. Usage Note: A "Privacy Mark" is a Security Control Observation (SECCONOBS) named tag set as specified by the HL7 Privacy and Security Classification System (HCS). A Privacy Mark Named Tag Set is valued with a Privacy Mark leaf code "tag", which is a member of the Security Control Observation Value (_SecurityObservationValue) tag set. Related Security Control Observation named tag sets are Purpose of Use, Obligation Policy, and Refrain Policy, each with their own Security Control Observation Value tag sets. Foundational standard definitions: ISO 22600-3 Section A.3.4.3 - If present, the privacy-mark is not used for access control. The content of the privacy-mark may be defined by the security policy in force (identified by the security-policy-identifier) which may define a list of values to be used. Alternately, the value may be determined by the originator of the security-label. IEEE Security Glossary Compendium 93- CESG Memorandum No.1 Issue 1.2 Oct 1992 - Human readable word or phrase acting as an indicator of all or part of the security constraints that apply to a document so marked. NOTE: A machine readable representation of a marking. Comment: While policies requiring creators, processors, custodians, senders or recipients apply, enforce, and persist applicable Privacy Marks may be dictated by a jurisdiction, organization or personal privacy, security, or integrity policy, those required to comply may be governed under different policies, so compliance may need to be enforced through trust contracts. For example, information content marked with GDPR related policies may require adherence by processors or recipients outside of the European Union. For this reason, this code system is likely to evolve with the inclusion of multiple policy domains needing to communicate encoded policies in a standard, interoperable manner.
ControlledUnclassifiedInformation http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode ControlledUnclassifiedInformation Information the US Government creates or possesses, or that an entity creates or possesses for or on behalf of the Government, that a law, regulation, or Government-wide policy requires or permits an agency to handle using safeguarding or dissemination controls. However, CUI does not include classified information (see definition above) or information a non-executive branch entity possesses and maintains in its own systems that did not come from, or was not created or possessed by or for, an executive branch agency or an entity acting for an agency. Law, regulation, or Government-wide policy may require or permit safeguarding or dissemination controls in three ways: Requiring or permitting agencies to control or protect the information but providing no specific controls, which makes the information CUI Basic; requiring or permitting agencies to control or protect the information and providing specific controls for doing so, which makes the information CUI Specified; or requiring or permitting agencies to control the information and specifying only some of those controls, which makes the information CUI Specified, but with CUI Basic controls where the authority does not specify.

UUI http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode (U) A displayed mark, required to be rendered as "(U)", indicating that a portion of an electronic or hardcopy information is neither Executive Order 13556 nor classified information authorities cover as protected. Although this information is not controlled or classified, agencies must still handle it in accordance with Federal Information Security Modernization Act (FISMA) requirements. From CUI Glossary https://www.archives.gov/cui/registry/cui-glossary.html Usage Note: Regulatory Source: 32 CFR § 2002.20 Marking. Federal Register Page 63344 63344 (ii) Authorized holders permitted to designate CUI must portion mark both CUI and uncontrolled unclassified portions. CUI Marking Handbook https://www.archives.gov/files/cui/20161206-cui-marking-handbook-v1-1.pdf CUI Portion Marking: Portion marking of CUI is optional in a fully unclassified document, but is permitted and encouraged to facilitate information sharing and proper handling of the information. Agency heads may approve the required use of CUI Portion marking on all CUI generated within their agency. As such, users should consult their agency CUI policy when creating CUI documents. When CUI Portion Markings are used and a portion does not contain CUI a “U� is placed in parentheses to indicate that the portion contains Uncontrolled Unclassified Information. (Page 14) CUI Portion Markings are placed at the beginning of the portion to which they apply and must be used throughout the entire document. They are presented in all capital letters and separated as indicated in this handbook and the CUI Registry. The presence of EVEN ONE item of CUI in a document requires CUI marking of that document. Because of this, CUI Portion Markings can be of great assistance in determining if a document contains CUI and therefore must be marked as such. Remember: When portion markings are used and any portion does not contain CUI, a “(U)� is placed in front of that portion to indicate that it contains Uncontrolled - or non-CUI - Unclassified Information. (Page 15)
SecurityLabelMark http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode Security Label Mark An abstract code for displayed Security Label tags. Usage Note: These marks may be based on any of the HL7 Security Labeling related codes from various code systems and values sets, which are organized according to the HL7 Privacy and Security Classification System into HL7 Security Observation Type Named Tag Sets and valued with codes associated with the HL7 Security Observation Value Tag Set Names.
ConfidentialMark http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode confidential mark A displayed mark rendered as "Confidential", which indicates to end users that the electronic or hardcopy information they are viewing must be protected at a level of protection as dictated by applicable policy. May be used to indicate proprietary or classified information that is, for example, business, intelligence, or project related, e.g., secret ingredients in a therapeutic substance; location of disaster health facilities and providers, or the name of a manufacturer or project contractor. Example use cases include a display to alert authorized business system users that they are viewing additionally protected proprietary and business confidential information deemed proprietary under an applicable jurisdictional or organizational policy. Usage Note: The ConfidentialMark (confidential mark) description is based on the HL7 Confidentiality Concept Domain: Types of privacy metadata classifying an IT resource (data, information object, service, or system capability) according to its level of sensitivity, which is based on an analysis of applicable privacy policies and the risk of financial, reputational, or other harm to an individual or entity that could result if made available or disclosed to unauthorized individuals, entities, or processes. Usage Note: Confidentiality codes may be used in security labels and privacy markings to classify IT resources based on sensitivity to indicate the obligation of a custodian or receiver to ensure that the protected resource is not made available or disclosed to individuals, entities, or processes (security principals) unless authorized per applicable policies. Confidentiality codes may also be used in the clearances of initiators requesting access to protected resources. Map: Definition aligns with ISO 7498-2:1989 - Confidentiality is the property that information is not made available or disclosed to unauthorized individuals, entities, or processes.
COPYMark http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode copy of original mark A displayed mark indicating that the electronic or hardcopy information is a copy of an authoritative source for the information. The copy is not considered authoritative but is a duplicate of the authoritative content. Usage Note: Applicable policy will dictate how the COPY mark will be displayed. Typical renderings include the marking appearing at the top or "banner" of electronic or hardcopy pages, or as watermarks set diagonally across each page.
DeliverToAddresseeOnlyMark http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode deliver only to addressee mark A displayed mark on an electronic transmission or physical container such as an electronic transmittal wrapper, batch file, message header, or a physical envelop or package indicating that the contents, whether electronic or hardcopy information, must only be delivered to the authorized recipient(s) named in the address. Usage Note: Required by US 32 CRF Part 2002 for container storing or transmitting CUI.
RedisclosureProhibitionMark http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode prohibition against redisclosure mark A displayed mark rendered to end users as a prescribed text warning that the electronic or hardcopy information shall not be further disclosed without consent of the subject of the information. For example, in order to warn a recipient of 42 CFR Part 2 information of the redisclosure restrictions, the rule mandates that end users receive a written prohibition against redisclosure unless authorized by patient consent or otherwise permitted by Part 2. See 42 CFR § 2.32 Prohibition on re-disclosure. (a)Notice to accompany disclosure. Each disclosure made with the patient's written consent must be accompanied by one of the following written statements: (1) This information has been disclosed to you from records protected by federal confidentiality rules ( 42 CFR part 2). The federal rules prohibit you from making any further disclosure of information in this record that identifies a patient as having or having had a substance use disorder either directly, by reference to publicly available information, or through verification of such identification by another person unless further disclosure is expressly permitted by the written consent of the individual whose information is being disclosed or as otherwise permitted by 42 CFR part 2. A general authorization for the release of medical or other information is NOT sufficient for this purpose (see § 2.31). The federal rules restrict any use of the information to investigate or prosecute with regard to a crime any patient with a substance use disorder, except as provided at §§ 2.12(c)(5) and 2.65; or (2) 42 CFR part 2 prohibits unauthorized disclosure of these records. https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/42/2.32 Usage Note: Example of marking requirement from SAMHSA FAQ Response to question 13: Would a logon or splash page notification on an HIO’s portal that contains the Part 2 notice prohibiting redisclosure be sufficient to meet Part 2’s requirement that disclosures made with patient consent be accompanied by such a statement? No. Part 2 requires each disclosure made with written patient consent to be accompanied by a written statement that the information disclosed is protected by federal law and that the recipient cannot make any further disclosure of it unless permitted by the regulations (42 CFR § 2.32). A logon page is the page where a user logs onto a computer system; a splash page is an introductory page to a web site. A logon or splash page notification on a HIO's portal including the statement as required by § 2.32 would not be sufficient notification regarding prohibitions on redisclosure since it would not accompany a specific disclosure. The notification must be tied to the Part 2 information being disclosed in order to ensure that the recipient of that information knows that specific information is protected by Part 2 and cannot be redisclosed except as authorized by the express written consent of the person to whom it pertains or as otherwise permitted by Part 2. https://www.samhsa.gov/about-us/who-we-are/laws-regulations/confidentiality-regulations-faqs
RestrictedConfidentialityMark http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode restricted confidentiality mark A displayed mark rendered to end users as "Restricted Confidentiality", which indicates that the electronic or hardcopy information they are viewing, must be protected at a restricted level of confidentiality protection as defined by HL7 Confidentiality code "R" (restricted). 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. Use cases include a display to alert authorized EHR users that they are viewing additionally protected health information deemed sensitive by an applicable jurisdictional, organizational, or personal privacy policy. Usage Note: The definition is based on HL7 Confidentiality code "R" (restricted), which is described as: Privacy 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. Foundational definitions of Confidentiality: From HL7 Confidentiality Concept Domain: Types of privacy metadata classifying an IT resource (data, information object, service, or system capability) according to its level of sensitivity, which is based on an analysis of applicable privacy policies and the risk of financial, reputational, or other harm to an individual or entity that could result if made available or disclosed to unauthorized individuals, entities, or processes. Usage Note from HL7 Confidentiality code "R": Confidentiality codes may be used in security labels and privacy markings to classify IT resources based on sensitivity to indicate the obligation of a custodian or receiver to ensure that the protected resource is not made available or disclosed to individuals, entities, or processes (security principals) unless authorized per applicable policies. Confidentiality codes may also be used in the clearances of initiators requesting access to protected resources. This metadata indicates that the receiver may be obligated to comply with applicable, prevailing (default) jurisdictional privacy law or disclosure authorization. Map: Definition aligns with ISO 7498-2:1989 - Confidentiality is the property that information is not made available or disclosed to unauthorized individuals, entities, or processes. 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.
RefrainPolicy http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode refrain policy Conveys prohibited actions which an information custodian, receiver, or user is not permitted to perform unless otherwise authorized or permitted under specified circumstances. Usage Notes: ISO 22600-2 species that a Refrain Policy "defines actions the subjects must refrain from performing". Per HL7 Composite Security and Privacy Domain Analysis Model: May be used to indicate that a specific action is prohibited based on specific access control attributes e.g., purpose of use, information type, user role, etc.

NOPAT http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActCode no disclosure to patient, family or caregivers without attending provider's authorization Prohibition on disclosing information to patient, family or caregivers without attending provider's authorization. Usage Note: The information may be labeled with the ActInformationSensitivity TBOO code, triggering application of this RefrainPolicy code as a handling caveat controlling access. Maps to FHIR NOPAT: Typically, this is used on an Alert resource, when the alert records information on patient abuse or non-compliance. FHIR print name is "keep information from patient". Maps to the French realm - code: INVISIBLE_PATIENT. displayName: Document non visible par le patient codingScheme: 1.2.250.1.213.1.1.4.13 French use case: A label for documents that the author chose to hide from the patient until the content can be disclose to the patient in a face to face meeting between a healthcare professional and the patient (in French law some results like cancer diagnosis or AIDS diagnosis must be announced to the patient by a healthcare professional and should not be find out by the patient alone).

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.

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."
ETREAT http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActReason Emergency Treatment To perform one or more operations on information for provision of immediately needed health care for an emergent condition.
BTG http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActReason break the glass To 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.
ERTREAT http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-ActReason emergency room treatment To 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."

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.
