OCHIN member clinics are connected to the most robust interoperability frameworks nationally:

·        eHealth Exchange — Connects our members to Federal Agencies.

·        Carequality — Connects our members to Non-Epic Partners.

·        Care Everywhere — Connects our members to Epic Partners.

·        Surescripts — Connects our members to Direct Secure Messaging.

OCHIN has fully enabled public facing FHIR API functionality such that any application chosen by a patient can gain access to their individual health information.



Our technology team includes leaders in the national discussion on interoperability to connect smaller practices and community health centers to each other as well as the broader delivery system.

OCHIN executives serve on the board of The Sequoia Project, which leads the eHealth Exchange and Carequality initiatives. They also serve on the Care Connectivity Consortium board and Epic’s Care Everywhere network.

OCHIN leads with a National Framework approach because interoperability must scale to provide communities with connections locally, across state lines, and even international borders.
