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.
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.
