NATE and the Blue Button on FHIR team at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) are working together to collaboratively establish a trust mechanism for consumer-facing applications (CFAs) that wish to access CMS beneficiary data via APIs. As part of the Blue Button on FHIR pilot, NATE is extending its administrative tools and governance processes to help demonstrate how CMS (and potentially other data holders with APIs designed to disclose PHI to an application chosen by a consumer) can leverage the private sector’s existing trust communities without building isolated and duplicative government-administered communities.
