HITECH Programs & Advisory Committees

Exemplar HIE Governance Entities Program

On December 20, 2012 ONC released the Exemplar Health Information Exchange Governance Entities Program (Program) Funding Opportunity Announcement. Two existing governance organizations, DirectTrust and the New York eHealth Collaborative on behalf of the EHR|HIE Interoperability Workgroup, received cooperative agreements with ONC to:

  • develop and adopt policies, interoperability requirements and business practices that align with national priorities
  • overcome interoperability challenges
  • reduce implementation costs and
  • assure the privacy and security of health information exchange.

This work will support and advance the efforts of these existing governance entities which will benefit consumers and providers by allowing health information to flow securely between unaffiliated healthcare organizations.
