    • Description:
      The electronic transfer of public health data involves the ability to securely and automatically send and receive information between computer systems, to achieve a “live” network for data exchange between partners in public health, i.e. the Public Health Information Network (PHIN).

      The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has advanced a standards-based approach to secure, reliable, bi-directional message transport across the Internet. The resulting Public Health Information Network (PHIN) specification calls for ebXML messaging on top of SOAP web services, XML Encryption, XML Digital Signature, and SSL authentication using client side certificates and/or passwords. The use of these industry standard specifications ensures that public health data is securely, reliably and automatically sent and received between health data systems. To effectively exchange information, both sending and receiving parties must adhere to the same specifications. This provides guidance of how to implement systems that securely send and receive public health data.
