Be a Carequality Leader
Carequality is a consensus-based initiative to connect networks under a shared interoperability framework. We’re looking for leaders to take a stand in accelerating health data sharing by joining the Carequality Steering Committee! We’re accepting applications to join the Steering Committee until August 12th.
The Steering Committee is responsible for Carequality’s strategic direction, and for the development and oversight of the Carequality Interoperability Framework. The Carequality Interoperability Framework was published in December 2015 and has since been adopted by a more then a dozen leading healthcare information networks. Our implementing networks have enabled more than 600,000 physicians to share more than 36 million clinical documents a month.
With input from the Carequality Advisory Council and other stakeholders, the Committee manages the work of Carequality, including adoption of new use cases and settling key decisions regarding our consensus-built Framework. The Committee of 14 members balances continuity with fresh perspective by rotating terms so that 50% of the seats have terms expire each year. When this year’s seven open seats are filled, the committee will elect this session’s leadership. The Committee is currently led by Chair Dr. Michael Hodgkins, of the American Medical Association, and Vice Chair Dr. Steven Lane, of Sutter Health.
