The Carequality health-information exchange collaborative has reached two milestones in seamless data transfer, MedCity News reported.
One health IT vendor calls the Carequality Interoperability Framework the “rules of the road.” It’s now supporting data transfer for more than 3,000 clinics and 200 hospitals. The Vienna, Va.-based Sequoia Project, which oversees the collaborative, said that 13 major healthcare organizations have adopted the framework.
MedCity News reported that Sacramento-based Sutter Health “was the first to be ready to go live with exchange on the Carequality Interoperability Framework. The health system, which uses an Epic Systems electronic health record, went live with patient data exchange among about a dozen area practices on athenahealth‘s EHR on July 1.”
Sutter has added another 12 practices to its list of interoperability partners this week, all with eClinicalWorks systems.
