The Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA) by the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) aims to create a national backbone of organizations with record location capabilities, called Qualified Health Information Networks (QHINs) that will connect to each other to improve nationwide data exchange. Companies looking to connect to the nationwide network proposed by TEFCA will have the opportunity to join one of these accredited QHINs. CommonWell will be one of them.
CommonWell has been building and scaling a nationwide health data exchange network using a highly-efficient Record Locator Service since 2013.
With its 70+ member companies, and working closely with the ONC, CommonWell is more than prepared to seamlessly transition to QHIN status and make TEFCA a success.
