HL7 Consumer Mobile Health Application Functional Framework (CMHAFF)

An HL7 Standard for Trial Use

The Consumer Mobile Health Application Functional Framework is an HL7 Standard for Trial Use (STU). The primary goals of the Consumer Mobile Health Functional Framework ( cMHAFF ) are to provide a standard against which a mobile app’s foundational characteristics -- including but not limited to security, privacy, data access, data export, and transparency/disclosure of conditions -- can be assessed.

The framework is based on the lifecycle of an app, as experienced by an individual consumer, from first deciding to download an app, to determining what happens with consumer data after the app has been deleted from a smartphone. It is important to note that the Framework does not speak directly to the specific health or clinical functionality of an app but can be extended to do so through the use of profiles (with constraints and/or extensions) developed on top of cMHAFF.

This site provides a visual overview of the HL7 CMHAFF STU and application for piloting CMHAFF use in testing and potential for certification of health apps.
