The Sequoia Project’s Interoperability Matters Initiative hosts a range of activities to promote information sharing in the public good.
This includes the Information Blocking Working Group, which was chartered in 2019. The group initially served as a multi-stakeholder forum to discuss and provide feedback to the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for Health Information Technology on the information blocking provisions in the 21st Century Cures Act proposed rule, and then identify practical, implementation-focused implications of the final rule.
Since that time, the group has continued to meet and provide resources to the field by holding discussions to clarify information blocking policies and considerations and submitting FAQ requests to ONC, both as a full work group and in Actor-based subgroups. The Sequoia Project also provides educational resources, such as its Information Blocking Boot Camp.
