CommonWell QHIN Application is Approved

On February 13, 2022, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra recognized CommonWell Health Alliance for its application approval to potentially become one of the Qualified Health Information Networks (QHINs) that will make up the Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA).

About CommonWell & TEFCA

The TEFCA Roadmap for QHINs is in many ways based on how CommonWell already does business today. CommonWell has been building and scaling a nationwide health data exchange network using a highly-efficient Record Locator Service since 2013.

Learn why CommonWell is more than ready to support TEFCA and help it succeed in creating nationwide connected care.

How the Record Locator Service Works & Why It Matters

CommonWell has developed a Record Locator Service – or RLS – which is how patient data is located within the network and shared with providers, patients and other authorized users. The scope and efficiency of the RLS will be critical as we pursue QHIN status as part of The Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement.
