EPHT Network
Download as PDF [213 Kb]


The following presents external constraints that may affect the design and development of the EPHT Network:

  • Certain state and local regulations may prevent access to various data
  • Concerns regarding privacy and confidentiality may restrict the contents of data sets provided to the network
  • Stakeholder agreements may be challenging because of different backgrounds and conflicting needs
  • Data owners may fear that greater access to their data could result in misinterpretation or misuse of the data, resulting in an increased possibility of lawsuits (liability risk)
  • Data access may be delayed while Trading Partner Agreements are negotiated and finalized
  • Aggregated data may be inconsistent because of incompatibility and lack of standardization among data owners.
