Health Gorilla is pleased to announce we have submitted our letter of intent to apply to be a Qualified Health Information Network (QHIN) under the Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA).
Addressed to The Sequoia Project, TEFCA’s designated Recognized Coordinating Entity (RCE), the letter was sent September 2 by Health Gorilla CEO and Co-Founder Steve Yaskin.
“Our entire team is excited to begin the application process and looks forward to continued collaboration with the RCE,” Yaskin wrote in the letter. “We believe we will become a valuable member of the QHIN community, providing TEFCA access for our diverse customer base.”
Our plans to become a QHIN were announced in 2021, and we have been closely monitoring developments and providing feedback to the RCE throughout this process. TEFCA version 1 was released earlier this year and The Sequoia Project said August 31 that it will begin taking applications October 3.
If granted, the QHIN designation will allow Health Gorilla to securely exchange data with other QHINs, connect our existing and future participants to a robust healthcare network, and partner with Health Information Networks (HINs) that will be required to connect to and exchange data with QHINs.
