In a letter to Congress, a new coalition has proposed a new standard for patient copies of their EHR information that is believed to be a critical, transformative, and cost-effective step toward both interoperability and patient privacy, it states.

The group signing the letter represents patients, doctors, technology companies, think tanks, self-insured health plans, and regional health information organizations.

Members include: American Academy of Family Physicians; American College of Cardiology; Cerner Corporation; Greater Ocala Health Information Trust, Inc.; Health Record Banking Alliance; Information Technology and Innovation Foundation; Louisville Health Information Exchange, Inc.; National Alliance for Hispanic Health; Patient Command, Inc.; Progressive Policy Institute; Secure Services Corp.; and Self-Insurance Institute of America.
