Seven years in the making, the Trusted Exchange Framework Agreement (TEFCA) is live and Qualified Health Information Networks (QHINs) are exchanging data. Mandated by the 21st Century Cures Act, TEFCA has three goals: (1) to establish a universal governance, policy, and technical floor for nationwide interoperability; (2) to simplify connectivity for organizations to securely exchange information to improve patient care, enhance the welfare of populations, and generate health care value; and (3) to enable individuals to gather their health care information.
As one of the nation’s premier health information networks, USQHIN stands at the forefront, leveraging our extensive experience to guide organizations through TEFCA implementation and shape the landscape of secure and interoperable health information exchange.
