Care Connectivity Consortium IT Workgroup

The HWCIR was the host site for meetings this week with the IT workgroup of the Care Connectivity Consortium (CCC). During the week, the CCC IT workgroup continued their efforts to provide enhanced data sharing capabilities among different healthcare providers and patients.

The HWCIR and Intermountain Healthcare are proud to participate in the CCC. The Consortium's mission is to create methods to safely and securely exchange patient health information among disparate electronic health record systems across the United States. Formed in 2011, the CCC consists of Intermountain Healthcare, Geisinger Health System (based in Pennsylvania), Group Health Cooperative (based in Washington), Kaiser Permanente (based in California) and Mayo Clinic (based in Minnesota). All five organizations currently participating in the CCC share the belief that electronic medical information is one of the most important care support tools available in healthcare today.
