The Sequoia Project Interoperability Testing

The Sequoia Project interoperability testing program is focused on real-world testing necessary to establish interoperable exchange of clinical data among stakeholder in a secure way. It currently includes transport, security, and content testing. The rigorous testing program was initially developed to test conformance for health data sharing standards for on-boarding to the eHealth Exchange network. The program includes Participant Validation, which is specifically designed for applicants that are seeking to on-board to the eHealth Exchange or for existing eHealth Exchange participants seeking to retest their system due to a major system upgrade or change to their technology.  The program also includes Product Testing. Significant benefits exist to Participants using a validated system, including reduced or eliminated testing fees.
