Identifying the nature of my software
The INS must be relevant to you.
- If you are developing multiple software products, identify the nature of each one.
Select your software’s type to access the appropriate steps for your solution
An identity log is a software that allows the creation or modification of identities. This is often the case for patient administrative management (PAM) in health establishments, practice management software (PMS) for self-employed professionals, the laboratory management system (LMS) for laboratories, the radiology information system (RIS) in imaging practices, etc.
Note: Solutions for preliminary steps like making appointments/pre-consultations/pre-admission, which directly involve the user in managing their own digital identity, are considered to be identity log software.
It is a recipient of health data referenced with the INS from the same or a different identification domain
- The software is not an identity logger: It does not create or modify identities. This action is performed by other software that logs the identities within the facility.
- An identification domain is a set of applications within an information system that identify the patient with the same digital identity through a common identity log. For example, a health care facility, a doctor’s office, etc. can each be considered as an identification domain
- This profile can be a software client connected to the identity log of a health care facility, etc. It is mainly found in health care facilities, whose information system consists of multiple software programs.
