ebXML Registry Classification Obligation Policy

[Observation: templateId 2.16.840.1.113883.3.3251.1.22]

This ebXML classification template summarizes the constraints applied to a
          ebXMLRegistryClassification in order to  encode the "Obligation Policy
          code as metadata for transport metadata (e.g. Document Sharing Metadata known as XDS and
          XDM metadata) to support NwHIN Exchange and NwHIN Direct.      
            If an obligation policy code accompanies a document or message. the
          receiver of the data must persist the obligation code to manage the information according
          to the obligation (i.e. encrypted). In other cases the obligation may specify the receiver
          of the data is required to comply to the patient's consent. This type of security label
          field is referenced by the HL7 HCS specification as a "handling caveat"
          because is sets specific handling condition on the receiver of the data. The Obligation Policy Code is an reuses the current core Document Sharing (Metadata
            content profile to support addition privacy annotations - obligation policy codes. This
            is an optional element - unlike confidentialityCode - which is similar but
            required/mandatory. This element is mandatory in certain situations. This metadata was constrained to support the needs of the DS4P project as specified in the introduction to this document.
