Notification of Document Availability
Notification of Document Availability (NAV) defines a mechanism for point-to-point notifications between systems or users within an XDS Affinity Domain or between different XDS Affinity Domains.
NAV provides a mechanism for point-to-point notifications.
NAV defines a mechanism for point-to-point notifications between systems or users within an XDS Affinity Domain or between different XDS Affinity Domains. These notifications can be used to trigger various activities within applications that implement both XDS and NAV. The Notification of Document Availability Profile specifies the use of SMTP and related standards for sending notifications, and the XML Digital Signature Core for creating a manifest of documents which are the subject of the notification.
This profile may be used to support:
- Responses to requests for records between providers.
- Referrals between providers.
- Guiding Patients in accessing specific parts of their health records.
The Notification of Document Availability Profile (NAV) defines the format, content, encoding and transmission of notification messages and acknowledgements between NAV Actors and a known recipient (either a person or system) that participate in the same XDS Affinity Domain or between different XDS Affinity Domains. These notifications are used to indicate that meta-data for one or more new or existing documents are available in the XDS Registry.
The manner in which a Notification Receiver is associated with and XDS Document Consumer is not defined in this profile to allow a broad range of implementation approaches.
