Partner and Leader of the Health Industry IT (HIT) Practice, Health Industry Advisory Group, PricewaterhouseCoopers

"Markle Connecting for Health went so far beyond simply saying how things should be. We built a three-region prototype that successfully tested our Common Framework model for private and secure health information exchange across three very different communities. The elegance and scalability of the Common Framework model is a direct result of the diversity of interests that helped shape it through collaboration and attention to real-world needs. As we said throughout the process of getting the Common Framework prototype off the ground, the technology was the easy part. The real accomplishment of the Connecting for Health Common Framework was providing a credible and methodical forum to tackle the more difficult policy questions and the power that had to guide the industry."
