The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) has designated CommonWell Health Alliance and Kno2 as Qualified Health Information Networks (QHINs) on Feb. 12. This designation allows these organizations to electronically exchange health information nationwide under the Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA), which is a set of common rules for secure exchange of treatment and other health information required by the 21st Century Cures Act of 2016.

With the addition of CommonWell Health Alliance and Kno2, there are now seven QHINs that have been designated by the ONC. These QHINs play a key role in the trusted exchange of health information, helping to facilitate interoperability and improve the coordination of care for patients across different healthcare settings.

The first quarter of 2024 will see the QHINs adopt Common Agreement Version 2.0, an updated version that will require support for the Health Level Seven FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) standard. This will further enhance their ability to securely exchange health information, which is an important step in the continued effort to improve interoperability and ensure that health information can be seamlessly and securely shared among healthcare providers.
