AHA Responds to ONC's Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA) Draft 2

The AHA  responds to the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology’s Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA) Draft 2.

The AHA is generally supportive of the overall concept of the TEFCA and ONC’s goal to create a voluntary network-of-networks that would enable hospitals to join one network and access all of their trading partners. ONC’s responsiveness to comments on the agency’s first draft of the TEFCA, including the addition of this second round of comments and a “walk before we run” approach, is beneficial to help ensure that this goal can be met in a manner that is workable and useful for all parties involved.
