TEFCA Comments Summary

Public Comments on the Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement Draft 2

ONC received more than 100 comments on the Trusted Exchange Framework (TEF) Draft 2 during the public commenting period.

Draft 2 of the Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA) outlines a common set of principles, terms, and conditions to support the development of a Common Agreement that would help enable nationwide exchange of electronic health information (EHI) across disparate health information networks (HINs).

Comments were submitted by a wide range of stakeholders including: health information networks/exchanges, health professional societies, providers of health services, health information technology developers, hospitals, public health entities, health care payers, health care quality organizations, state entities, health care suppliers of services, and patient advocates.

ONC will be updating the Trusted Exchange Framework, the Minimum Required Terms and Conditions, and the QHIN Technical Framework based on comments received by the deadline. There will be additional opportunities in the future for public input into the creation of the Common Agreement.

ONC thanks all of the organizations that submitted comments and looks forward to continued engagement on this work.

For those wishing to review comments submitted, please reference the table.
