Interoperability and Health Information Exchange Workgroup

The Interoperability and Health Information Exchange Workgroup will provide input and make recommendations on policy issues and opportunities to facilitate the sharing of health information electronically among providers and patients/caregivers, in support of care management, coordination and improvements in health. The workgroup will consider implementation learnings from the field and will align efforts with other groups (e.g. Privacy and Security Workgroup, Advanced Care Models and Meaningful Use, and the Health IT Standards Committee). The Workgroup will make recommendations that focus on policies that can help address implementation challenges and that promote a business and regulatory environment supportive of widespread information exchange in support of patient and population care. Examples of issues the Workgroup may consider include, but are not limited to health information exchange infrastructure, governance, and technology policy (such as patient matching).
