Common Agreement Kick-Off Meeting
Over the coming months, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) will host a series of meetings and webinars to inform our work in support of the 21st Century Cures Act trusted exchange framework and common agreement provisions outlined in Section 4003 of the law. ONC looks forward to working with stakeholders on implementation of this Cures provision—an integral component of the nationwide network-to-network exchange of health data and a critical part of ONC’s charge to support nationwide interoperability.
As part of the July 24, 2017 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. The meeting also will provide an opportunity for stakeholders to comment on existing national trust infrastructures used to exchange health information electronically and on electronic data sharing best practices.
We look forward to engaging with stakeholders across the health IT spectrum—including clinicians, policymakers, state and federal agencies, exchange service providers and organizations, and the private sector. Following the meeting on July 24, 2017, we anticipate subsequent meetings in mid-September and late November. These meetings, in addition to the public comment period, will help us gather information about successful network to network exchange of health information, as outlined in the Cures Act.
If you would like to attend the kick off meeting, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, July 18, 2017.
