“We’re thrilled to name a diverse group of leading organizations that intend to participate in our candidate Qualified Health Information Network,” said Steve Yaskin, CEO & Co-founder of Health Gorilla. “These commitments demonstrate that many different kinds of healthcare organizations see the value in TEFCA, and we look forward to onboarding them to a modern, federally endorsed data sharing framework once Health Gorilla is designated a QHIN.”
