The California Medical Association (CMA) House of Delegates today displayed a strong show of support for electronic health record (EHR) interoperability (Res. 518-13) and directed the association to support the development of a secure, interoperable, nationwide health information exchange network.

Supporters of the resolution noted that much work needs to be done to achieve meaningful interoperability and facilitate efficient, timely and coordinated patient care among providers in different geographical areas.

The resolution directs CMA to support efforts to harmonize standards and specifications that would enable usability and interoperability of EHR systems and facilitate the exchange of health information among health care providers.
