What’s the Health Care Operations exchange purpose under TEFCA?

The Health Care Operations exchange purpose includes administrative, financial, legal, and quality improvement functions of a covered entity (CE) essential to running its business and supporting treatment and payment activities. Under the Operations use case, qualified organizations can retrieve patient data to power the following workflows:
Accurately evaluate and assess risks with comprehensive medical history for applicants. Streamline the underwriting process and offer an improved, more seamless experience.
Quality assessment & improvement activities
Leverage health data to evaluate and enhance healthcare quality, efficiency, and effectiveness, including performance measurement and outcomes improvement.
Medical review, legal, and auditing services
Use exchanged health information to review medical practices, assess compliance with legal standards, and conduct audits to ensure adherence to regulations and policies.
