Get Involved

 Carequality’s mission to connect health data sharing networks and communities under a common trust framework is advanced by our many volunteers. Our success hinges on broad participation from a wide variety of industry stakeholders.

Carequality has many committees and workgroups that you can join. In the spirit of transparency and community, non-members are invited to join many of our workgroups as well. We encourage anyone who would like to participate to contact us at admin@carequality.org to let us know of your interest.  We can inform you about current opportunities on formal or ad hoc working groups.

Everyone is welcome to join our monthly information calls, and to join the Carequality Wiki to keep abreast of ongoing projects.

Our members form the backbone of our support, and play leading roles at all levels of the organizational structure outlined below.

Volunteer for a Carequality Committee or Workgroup

Carequality has a three-tiered governance model.  Follow the links below to learn more about each level.

Leadership Committees:

Steering Committee

The Steering Committee is responsible for Carequality’s strategic direction, and for the development and oversight of the Carequality Interoperability Framework.

Application process each fall.

Current Workgroups:

The Policy Working Group

Since go-live, the Carequality ecosystem has been expanding. There are also now a variety of potential Implementer organizations with use cases that were never envisioned. This WG is tasked with answering some of the policy questions that have naturally come from this growth.

Some examples of the policy questions that will be addressed are:

  • When, if ever, is it appropriate to trigger Treatment queries for a population of patients?
  • Should care gap analysis or other population health analytics qualify as “Treatment”?

Who can join?

Phase 1: The group will address Implementer focused issues. As such, we invite the following to join the conversation:

  • All CCA signatories are invited to select a representative of their organization, a legal representative, and a representative of one of their Carequality Connections

Phase 2: The Working Group will focus on topics including Payment and Health Care Operations.

  • All interested parties can contact us at Admin@carequality.org
  • The Working Group is open. Space is limited.

Once the Working Group has weighed in on these issues, their conclusions will be submitted to the Carequality Steering Committee and Advisory Council to determine a path forward.

Other Participation Opportunities:

We are actively seeking organizations to sign up for either our FHIR-Based Exchange or Push Notifications Pilots. If you are interested in either, please contact us at Admin@carequality.org.
