Summary of Disclosures

February 12, 2020 | 2:00pm ET | Webinar

This public stakeholder feedback meeting will provide the Recognized Coordinating Entity (RCE) an opportunity to share its analysis of the Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA) Summary of Disclosures Requirements.  ONC received numerous comments regarding the proposed Summary of Disclosures provisions and asked the RCE to do further research.  The purpose of this webinar is to walk through that analysis and enlist stakeholder input regarding the options to inform the RCE’s recommendations to ONC on this important policy.

TEFCA RCE Public Stakeholder Feedback Session: Exchange Operations ARTCs (Part 1)

Tuesday, February 18th | 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. ET  — Part 1

Wednesday, February 19th | 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. ET  — Part 1

*Due to popular demand, this TEFCA RCE Public Stakeholder Feedback Session: Exchange Operations ARTCs (Part 1 of 2) webinar is now occurring twice. Please plant to attend either February 18th or February 19th. The content will be the same.*

The 21st Century Cures Act directed the National Coordinator to develop or adopt a Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA). ONC selected The Sequoia Project to serve as the TEFCA Recognized Coordinating Entity (RCE) that is responsible for drafting the Common Agreement that will support the exchange activities. The Common Agreement consists of three components, the Minimum Required Terms and Conditions (MRTCs), the Additional Required Terms and Conditions (ARTCs) and the Qualified Technical Framework (QTF).
This series of Exchange Operations ARTCs public meetings will provide the RCE an opportunity to share information about the progress and direction of the Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA) Additional Required Terms and Conditions (ARTCs) as it relates to exchange operations under the purview of the Common Agreement. Prospective Qualified Health Information Networks (QHINs) and other interested stakeholders will have an opportunity to express their support for specific ideas, or considerations that the RCE should bear in mind when developing the next iteration of the ARTCs.

Please note: There are two separate Exchange Operations ARTCs, requiring separate registrations for Part 1 and Part 2. The content covered in Part 1 and Part 2 will be different and stakeholders are encouraged to attend both parts.
