The Data Exchange Framework: What are Qualified Health Information Organizations (QHIOs)?

This month, the CalHHS Center for Data Insights and Innovation (CDII) released an infographic that explains what a QHIO is, what purpose it serves, and its role in the DxF.

A QHIO is a Data Exchange Framework (DxF) designated intermediary that meets the criteria and requirements for secure data exchange. These intermediaries offer services and functions to support the sharing of health information, assisting health and social services entities as they initiate, receive, and reply to requests for information. DxF Participants may
choose to use a QHIO or another intermediary to meet their Data Sharing Agreement (DSA) requirements for secure data exchange.
