Get Involved with The Sequoia Project
The Sequoia Project is a national convener of private sector and government stakeholders solving health IT interoperability challenges. We focus on real world, pragmatic solutions; and we need active engagement of all stakeholders to make progress. Below is a sampling of activities our members may participate in:
- Interoperability Matters: Members are vital contributors to our Interoperability Matters Cooperative as we identify and resolve the remaining challenges to seamless, secure health information exchange. Members help prioritize the most pressing issues, such as: information blocking, patient matching, and other discrete problems. The workgroup issues are prioritized by the general members and may include information blocking, patient matching, and other discrete problems.
- Improving Interoperability of C-CDA and Content Testing: Sequoia brought together members, clinician users and subject matter experts to identify how to improve the consistency and value of the data transmitted in C-CDAs. The result was a specification and set of content testing tools to improve the value of the data being exchanged and used.
- Improving Patient Matching: Sequoia facilitated consensus among members and the implementation community to develop and update a uniform set of patient matching rules and a maturity model to improve patient matching. The latest paper is published here.
