Retrieve Document [ITI-68]

There are no additional requirements for the Swiss EPR extension for the Swiss EPR of the Retrieve Document [ITI-68] transaction defined in the MHD Profile which is published in the IHE ITI Trial Implementation “Mobile Access to Health Documents”.


The Retrieve Document [ITI-68] transaction is used by the Document Consumer to retrieve a document from the Document Responder.

Actor Roles

Actor: Document Consumer
Role: Requests a document from the Document Responder.
Actor: Document Responder
Role: Serves the document to the Document Consumer.

Referenced Standards

Mobile access to Health Documents (MHD) With XDS on FHIR Rev. 3.1 – 2019-03-06

This MHD Profile is based on Release 4 of the emerging HL7® FHIR® standard.


Trigger Events

The Document Consumer wants to obtain a document.

Message Semantics

The Document Consumer sends a HTTP GET request to the server. The Document Consumer request may be to retrieve the document content referenced by a DocumentReference.content.attachment.url.

Security Consideration

TLS SHALL be used. This national extension enforces authentication and authorization of access to the Patient Identity Manager using IUA profile with basic access token. Consequently the Retrieve Document [ITI-68] request must authorize using the Incorporate Authorization Token [ITI-72] transaction of the IUA profile.
