CAHIE is pleased to announce that we have formed a collaboration with the National Association for Trusted Exchange (NATE) to more effectively enable health information sharing among providers and between providers and consumers.  As part of this collaboration, NATE will transition administration of the Provider-to-Provider Trust Bundle to CAHIE.  The trust bundle was the first national framework dedicated to facilitating Direct messaging among providers and currently enables exchange among organizations across the nation, including in California, Oregon, Utah, and Alaska. This is a momentous step for CAHIE – the expanded relationship will allow our members to work more closely with NATE, while allowing CAHIE to focus on expanding exchange among provider organizations nationwide.

Over the coming weeks and months, CAHIE will convene a new national forum to establish consensus policies and procedures to manage and govern the new national provider trust bundle.The current trust bundle will move from the NATE to the CAHIE infrastructure, keeping the existing members in place.
