Dive Brief:

  • The hospitals and clinics use EHR software and services from athenahealth, eClinicalWorks, Epic, HIETexas, NextGen and SureScripts, which have agreed to the information exchange.
  • The Carequality Interoperability Framework, published in December, provides the necessary legal and policy requirements, technical specifications, and governance processes to enable interoperability among different health systems.
