Panel Discussion: Digital identity federation in healthcare - TRACK 3

The CARIN Alliance ( is a collaborative group of public and private stakeholders focused on advancing the ability for a consumer to digitally access their health information from any health plan or provider in the US. As part of that effort, CARIN is looking to establish an industry-level framework for digital identity federation. The goal is to enable a universal method for reliable determination of patient identity and authentication in support of highly scalable, secure exchange of EHI (electronic health information). CARIN is currently executing the largest digital identity federation proof of concept in history. It involves public sector partners, such as the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and the Office of National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC), as well as more than 20 private sector partners such as Kaiser Permanente, Marshfield Health Clinic, CVS Health,, and others. Our goal is to develop an open framework for how an individual can secure an IAL2 digital identity credential and use that single credential across multiple relying parties using an existing trust framework. Come learn more about what we have done, what we have learned, and how you can engage.
