Definition Edit

A data element access service (DEAS) is

a service that is associated with crawling, indexing, security, identity, authentication, authorization, and privacy.[1]

Overview Edit

As proposed, these DEAS and their components would have no right to use the data being exchanged; in fact, they would probably not even see the data. Rather, they would act much like today's web search engines, but with additional levels of responsibility for exposing only those data elements authorized by applicable privacy rules and policies (including a patient's persistent privacy choices) and only to authorized, authenticated users. A patient would have the right to restrict the types of data elements indexed at all, or could opt out of the DEAS completely (although such a choice might negatively impact that patient's future care).[2]
