An Open Community
The Lumedic Exchange is the community of organizations taking on healthcare interoperability by thinking differently about the role patients play in the exchange of their own personal health information.
Care Through Cooperation
A Platform for Healthcare’s Community
Lumedic Exchange establishes the foundation of open standards and governance, using verifiable credentials as a pattern for information sharing. From this platform, Lumedic Connect enables a patient-centric model of health information exchange.
Technology + Governance. Better Together.
Our patient-centric model embraces the concept of decentralization. We’ve shifted the ownership and control of information and systems away from a central actor. Without a central owner, community governance is the means to ensure trust in the system.

While governance and standards are critical, the community is tasked with discovering new use cases and scenarios that leverage this new pattern. Here are a few examples of what's possible:
Whether a flu shot was administered at a pharmacy or primary care, patients can now be the system of record.
When patients can present necessary health information at time of care, information requests no longer mean delays and fax machines.
With insurance and ID cards issued digitally to patients, the patient registration process is no longer a process at all.
The Lumedic Exchange’s shared governance model incorporates the human elements of digital trust, including legal, regulatory, business, and social requirements and is discussed in-depth in in its white paper.
The Lumedic Exchange’s view and analysis on the intersection of digital identity and healthcare laws such as HIPAA and the 21st Century Cares Act are set out in its white paper.
