The Sequoia Project Initiatives


Our work takes the form of independent initiatives, each with its own mission, governance, membership and structure. We are an ideal home for projects that require a collaborative environment in which multiple parties with differing perspectives can work together. We can provide the sustaining management services and governance support required to allow new initiatives to grow and succeed.  Our initiatives work independently but draw upon each other’s perspective and expertise as appropriate.

We currently support these initiatives:

  • Interoperability Matters is a public-private cooperative that engages experts from across the healthcare and healthcare IT communities to identify, prioritize, and collaborate on the most pressing, discrete challenges to nationwide health information exchange.
  • RSNA Image Share Validation, developed in partnership with the Radiological Society of North America, is a conformity assessment program that tests the compliance of vendor systems using quality standards determined most effective for accurate and efficient exchange of medical images.

Past successful initiatives include:

  • Patient Unified Lookup System for Emergencies (PULSE) is a nationwide health IT disaster response platform that can be deployed at the city, county, or state level to authenticate disaster healthcare volunteer providers. PULSE allows disaster workers to query and view patient documents from all connected healthcare organizations.
  • Carequality is a public-private collaborative endeavor focused on interconnecting data sharing networks through a trusted exchange framework and common agreement, designed and maintained by its community.
  • eHealth Exchange is a nationwide, public-private health information network supporting more 120 million patients with more than a dozen use cases.

We welcome the addition of new health IT interoperability initiatives. Contact us to determine if The Sequoia Project is a good fit for your next interoperability implementation project.
