PARCA eNews – Dec. 4, 2019 – The RSNA and Carequality announced the addition of a supplement to the Imaging Data Exchange Guide at a town hall event at its 2019 RSNA’s 105th Scientific Assembly and Annual meeting in Chicago in December. 

The supplement expands the scope of the Carequality Interoperability Framework to detail technical standards for exchanging medical images.

The publication is the result of RSNA’s partnership with Carequality and the Sequoia Project, two organizations dedicated to expanding online access to health records. 

Carequality and the Sequoia Project are closely allied, distinct nonprofit organizations supporting the advancement of health information exchange nationwide with complimentary strategies.

The Carequality Interoperability Framework provides governance and technical specifications to enable the linking of health information exchange networks in the US. The Sequoia Project is an independent advocate for nationwide health information exchange through programs, new initiatives and education.

Donald Rucker, MD, the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology, spoke at the meeting about the high value his agency places on enabling patient access to their complete medical record, including, critically, their imaging records.

Ambra Health, Life Image and Philips Healthcare were recognized at the conference for their leadership as early adopters of the Carequality Imaging Data Exchange Implementation program.
