More than a year after the first draft of the Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA) was published, the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for Health Information Technology (HIT) is back with a second draft.

Miles to go on interoperability

I recently had cause to wonder about the progress we’re making on the path to interoperability through “the woods” of healthcare information exchange (HIE).
  In accordance with the 21st Century Cures Act, The Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for Health Information Technology has released the draft version of the Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA).
