21st Century Cures Act Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement Webinar Series

Over the coming months, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) will host a series of meetings, webinars, and public comment periods 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 nationwide network-to-network exchange of health data and a critical part of ONC’s charge to support nationwide interoperability. 

As part of our engagement with stakeholders, ONC held a 30-day public comment period to receive comments on the trusted exchange framework and common agreement provisions in Section 4003 of the Cures Act—including comments specifying considerations, concerns, and success stories for the exchange of health data across networks. Throughout this process, ONC looks 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. We anticipate subsequent meetings, and the next meeting is expected to be in the early fall. These meetings, in addition to the public comment period, will help us gather more information about successful network-to-network exchange of health information, as outlined in the Cures Act.

Public Comments on the 21st Century Cures Act Trusted Exchange Framework are Now Closed.
