This Technical Report describes a set of key characteristics to achieve interoperability and compatibility in trusted

health information interchange between communicant application systems.

The key characteristics describe inter-application interoperability needs of the healthcare community, in particular

and the integrated delivery network.

The key characteristics offer criteria for standards developers and implementers of standards for messaging and

providers and end users.
