Sequoia Project’s members serve to help shape a technical strategic road map for health information exchange, guide product and interoperability testing programs, assure the continued alignment with the national strategy and engage in implementation-level collaborative efforts to identify and address challenges to health information exchange.
A sequoia tree cannot stand alone, but when there is a cluster of trees, their shallow root systems connect, supporting each other and accelerating their growth. Similarly, individual organizations and interoperability initiatives in health IT become much stronger and deliver more value by working together.
Ever since our founding in 2012, The Sequoia Project has looked to grow its membership footprint with organizations that are committed to our overall vision. Organizations may join The Sequoia Project as a member and engage in The Sequoia Project-sponsored initiatives and various cross-industry collaborative efforts to advance nationwide health information exchange implementation.
The Sequoia Project’s members are influential representatives from across the healthcare spectrum whose activities will supplement the work of The Sequoia Project Board of Directors.
Nine founding members were instrumental in the startup of Sequoia in 2012 and helped the company grow and expand its work in the early years, before Carequality was launched. These founders continued to play an important role as the company broadened its focus to support other initiatives and interoperability projects.
Founders included: American Medical Association, Epic, Informatics Corporation of America, MedVirginia, Michigan Health Information Network, Mirth, New York eHealth Collaborative, Orion Health and the Work Group for Electronic Data Interchange.
