TEFCA Requirements

The eHealth Exchange designated Qualified Health Information Network (QHIN) is governed by a QHIN Governance Committee (QGC). The purpose of the QGC is to enhance trust relationships between the eHealth Exchange QHIN participants by fulfilling certain responsibilities described in the eHealth Exchange TEFCA Terms and Conditions.

All TEFCA Obligations approved by this committee are then presented to the participants for a 30-Day Notice and Objection Period before becoming effective.

Proposed Changes to eHealth Exchange QHIN Documents

On May 20, 2024, the QGC updated and approved the eHealth Exchange TEFCA Terms and Conditions as well as five (5) Protocols to support TEFCA Exchange on the Designated Network. Organizations who have opted-in to participate in the eHealth Exchange QHIN received notification of these proposed changes on May 31, 2024. According to the Change Management Protocol, these protocols may only take effect following a 30-day period where participants have the opportunity to register any objections to the Protocols.
