Work on a federally supported interoperability initiative will continue this month when the not-for-profit Alembic Foundation holds a town-hall webinar on its Aurion software-development project.
Alembic hosts info session on interoperability project
Aurion, an open-source software program that descends from the federal government's Connect interoperability project, is meant to serve as a gateway for users of the Nationwide Health Information Network. The Alembic Foundation was incorporated in March and as its first project assumed responsibility for Connect—rebranded as Aurion—"to create a truly open community that uses open-source technology for health information exchange," according to a statement from Alembic President and CEO David Riley on the foundation's website.
The webinar is scheduled to take place May 18 from 1-4 p.m. ET. Participants will work to complete the charter for the Aurion project and will receive a technical overview of the Aurion 4.0 release. A question-and-answer period will follow. Registration for the webinar is available on the foundation's website.
Connect was launched in 2009 by the Federal Health Architecture—a collaboration of various federal entities that have healthcare responsibilities—and was overseen by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology at HHS.
