Trust Framework Workgroup

Note: This workgroup is now closed.

The purpose of the Trust Framework Work Group was to develop principles for trusted health information exchange between and among networks, and to apply those principles to Carequality’s initial Query for Documents Use Case. (For more information on Carequality Use Cases, see the “Carequality Process” section of the What We Do page.)

The Trust Framework Work Group has completed the first phase of its work, developing the Principles of Trust that serve as the foundation for Carequality’s operating structure. The second phase, also completed, was assisting the Query Work Group in developing the policy and business aspects of its implementation guide.
