Personnel White Pages
The Personnel White Pages (PWP) Integration Profile provides access to basic human workforce user directory information. This information has broad use among many clinical and non-clinical applications across the healthcare enterprise. The information can be used to enhance the clinical workflow (contact information), enhance the user interface (user friendly names and titles), and ensure identity (digital certificates). This Personnel White Pages directory will be related to the User Identity provided by the Enterprise User Authentication (EUA) Integration Profile previously defined by IHE.
This directory information is used to
- enhance the clinical workflow, with contact information, phone numbers, email address
- enhance the user interface, with displayable names and titles
The Personnel White Pages (PWP) Integration Profile:
- specifies a method of finding directory information on the User Identities (user@realm) supplied by the Enterprise User Authentication (EUA) Integration Profile.
- assumes but does not define access controls, and audit trails.
- The use of the PWP Profile is intended for use within a healthcare enterprise. Extension to support sharing of the PWP between healthcare enterprises is possible but not fully addressed by this profile. The PWP profile is the first step on an IHE roadmap that includes Digital Certificates, Encryption, Digital Signatures, Medical Credentials, and Roles.
Systems involved in this profile are:
- Enterprise-wide information systems that utilize information about human workforce members.
