The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) has announced that it will host a series of three public stakeholder meetings with the aim to gather information about successful network-to-network exchange of health information.

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) has announced that it will host a series of three public stakeholder meetings with the aim to gather information about successful network-to-network exchange of health information.

As outlined in a recent blog post from Genevieve Morris, Principal Deputy National Coordinator for Health IT, the 21st Century Cures Act calls for innovation in the seamless exchange of health information and lays out a path and timeline to develop or support a trusted exchange framework and common agreement to achieve full network to network exchange of health information. Cures also calls on ONC to advance that seamless exchange of health information.

As Morris writes, the three meetings “will allow us to gather information about successful network to network exchange of health information, as outlined in the Cures Act. As part of the first meeting, ONC will share the results of a recent analysis of existing frameworks that support the interoperable flow of health information across disparate networks and supportive principles related to enabling trusted exchange nationally.”

Following the first session, slated for July 24, ONC will begin a 30-day public comment period for stakeholders to provide feedback on how best to support or develop the trusted exchange framework and common agreement called for in Cures.
