What is the NBBD?

Consumers are requesting their medical records and providers want to share them but there is often a workflow disconnect between the two.  A simple enabling infrastructure can alleviate this problem.  The NATE Blue Button Directory (NBBD) allows patients to discover how best to submit their request for health information and establishes a secure end-point that can be used by the covered entity’s staff responsible for managing these requests.  The organization is registered by the appropriate staff (e.g., medical records department) in a FHIR-based directory, and a Direct address is provisioned to enable bi-directional exchange with the consumer-controlled apps recognized by NATE’s NBB4C trust community.  Participating in the NBBD mitigates accusations of “information blocking.”

What is the NATE TrustHarbor?

The NATE TrustHarbor is a new trust mechanism for API based exchange.  The TrustHarbor will facilitate trustworthy exchange at the intersection of consumer apps, provider’s APIs and validated endorsers.

The TrustHarbor enables:

  • Relying parties to discover the endorsements applied by recognized endorsers for a given app
  • Consumer apps to seek endorsements from competing endorsers
  • Modularization of endorsements to fit the requirements of a given transaction
  • A “public” framework where bad actors (either apps or endorsers) can be black listed across the ecosystem
