PHIN directory exchange implementation guide

Filetype[PDF-314.76 KB]

  • English

  • Details:

    • Description:
      Information held in local instances of a public health directory must be sharable to ensure that partners have the most current contact information and can support cross-jurisdictional communications. Directory exchange is aimed at increasing directory accuracy, reducing redundant maintenance of information in local directories and distributing the burden of maintenance across organizational entities.

      There are three main aspects involved in directory exchange: a common exchange schema is required to describe the attributes to be exchanged, a standard exchange protocol must be used to describe the content and the action to be taken by the recipient, and the exchange must be executed in adherence with secure transport requirements.
