The event will draw health IT leaders from across the United States for an update on The Sequoia Project’s programs and initiatives. The meeting will also provide attendees with a better understanding of The Sequoia Project’s ongoing role in existing and emerging health data sharing initiatives after the successful spinoff of its largest initiatives to date, namely Carequality and the eHealth Exchange.

“The Sequoia Project is continuing to grow and evolve in exciting ways. As we finalize details for rolling out Carequality and the eHealth Exchange to stand on their own, we’re very proud of what we’ve accomplished in making this possible. But more importantly, we’re excited about what’s next for the Sequoia Project,” said Mariann Yeager, CEO of the Sequoia Project. “Attendees will hear about our ongoing plans and new initiatives – ranging from improving interoperability testing and patient matching, to aiding with interoperability issues for medical imaging and emergency response.”

The agenda and registration is already open on The Sequoia Project’s website. The eHealth Exchange Participant Meeting will be held immediately before The Sequoia Project on Wednesday, October 24, 2018. The Carequality Member Annual Meeting will be October 25th to October 26th, also in National Harbor, Maryland.
