EHNAC Congratulates The Sequoia Project on Selection as the RCE

“EHNAC congratulates The Sequoia Project in partnership with Carequality and RTI International on the selection by ONC as the Recognized Coordinated Entity (RCE). We look forward to working with them and the healthcare industry as they develop the Common Agreement. The RCE will also collaborate with ONC to designate and monitor Qualified Health Information Networks (QHIN), modify and update accompanying QHIN technical requirements, engage with stakeholders through virtual public listening sessions, adjudicate noncompliance with the Common Agreement, and propose sustainability strategies to support TEFCA beyond the cooperative agreement’s period of performance.  We further agree that the nationwide sharing of health information is most readily enabled through trust frameworks and agreements, consistent policy and technical requirements, and appropriate, balanced governance to provide assurance of stakeholder trust and interoperability,” said Lee Barrett, executive director and CEO of the Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC).
