Trial.gif Consent to Share Information Specification

Consents to share information are documents that contain both a human and machine readable description of how a patient has chosen to share their information.

Format Code

The XDSDocumentEntry format code for this content is urn:ihe:pcc:bppc:2007

Parent Template

This document is an instance of the Medical Document template.

CDAR2 HL7 CDA Release 2.0
XDS-SD Scanned Documents

Data Element Name Opt Template ID
Consent Service Event
At least one, and possibly more than one, consent can be provided within the document.
Consents may also be protected under a sharing policity.


CDA Release 2.0 documents that conform to the requirements of this content module shall indicate their conformance by the inclusion of the appropriate <templateId> elements in the header of the document. This is shown in the sample document below. A CDA Document may conform to more than one template. This content module inherits from the Medical Document content module, and so must conform to the requirements of that template as well, thus all <templateId> elements shown in the example below shall be included.

A consent shall contain a text description of what the patient consented to, a list of codes indicating the policy(s) agreed to, a time range indicating the effective time of the consent, and shall contain a signature signifying the patient agreement to those policy(s) stated in the text description. Finally, consents may be attested to using an electronic digital signature, conforming to the ITI Digital Signature Profile.

The text description and signature may appear as a scanned image. When the consent contains a scanned image, it shall also conform to the constraints of the ITI Scanned Document profile.

A consent shall have one or more <serviceEvent> elements in the header identifying the policies authorized by the document (see Section of CDAR2). Each <serviceEvent> element indicates informed consent to one and only one XDS Affinity Domain policy. More than one policy may be agreed to within a given consent document.

Consent documents should be attested to by either the patient and/or legal guardian, or a third party assigned by the XDS Affinity Domain or its member organizations. The attestation, if present, should be performed using the ITI Digital Signature profile. The signer may be the patient, or a third party.
