During the 21st Century Cures Act Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement kick-off meeting on July 24, 2017, ONC shared preliminary results of an ongoing analysis of existing frameworks and organizations that support the interoperable flow of health information across disparate networks, and alignment and gaps related to enabling trusted exchange nationally. Participants heard remarks from Dr. Don Rucker, National Coordinator, and Genevieve Morris, Principal Deputy National Coordinator, as well as a personal perspective on interoperability from Cynthia Fisher.
