Legal and Governance Documents

Carequality Connected Agreement (CCA) (PDF)
This document contains the standard legal terms agreed by all implementers of the Carequality Framework. It provides the foundation for trusted exchange among implementers, by establishing the “rules of the road” and defining an implementer’s rights and obligations. (Note – the document linked here is the CCA itself, without any exhibits or schedules. Prospective implementers should contact Carequality at admin@carequality.org to obtain a complete legal package for execution.)

Dispute Resolution Process (PDF)
This document outlines the steps involved in addressing any formal disputes that may arise between implementers, or between implementers and Carequality.

Technical Trust Policy (PDF)
This document outlines requirements that constitute technically enforceable evidence that the organization has met the associated criteria for being a Carequality Participating System, to ensure technical trust among any system that hosts an end point listed in the Carequality Directory, or directly originates a request to such an end point. Individual use case Implementation Guides may specify different requirements from those outlined in this policy and in such a case the Implementation Guide will take precedence.
