Carequality

GE Healthcare is a member of Carequality, an initiative of the Sequoia Project. Carequality is a multi-stakeholder initiative that has brought together public and private sector players from across the healthcare ecosystem to meet the challenge of connecting disparate data sharing networks and platforms. The Carequality community uses a consensus-based process to develop and implement tools that enable seamless connectivity across all participating networks. The Carequality Interoperability Framework consists of legal terms, policy requirements, technical specifications, and governance processes that together make it possible for healthcare to replicate the success other industries have achieved in breaking down barriers between many networks, programs, and platforms.

Carequality Information Handling Practices Statement

GE Healthcare makes functionality available to its customers to enable them to exchange data with other healthcare organizations using the Carequality Framework. GE Healthcare transmits and stores information only to enable its customers' use of Carequality.
