Initiative Introduction

The term “provenance” in the context of Health IT refers to evidence and attributes describing the origin of health information as it is captured in a health system. Data provenance provides the ability to trace and verify the creation of information, how it has been used or moved among different databases, as well as how it is altered throughout its lifecycle. Clinical information can be shared between providers, organizations, health IT systems and other entities. The Data Provenance Initiative aims to establish a standardized way of capturing, retaining and exchanging the provenance of health information through pilots, use cases and other modalities.
