Kno2’s Pursuit for QHIN Designation
Kno2 has applied to become a Qualified Health Information Network (QHIN) under the Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA), demonstrating our continued commitment to enable health information exchange for all.
“Rarely do you find a partner who checks every box you’re looking for. Kno2 is that partner to WellSky. They are innovative, responsive and frankly, thought leaders we highly respect. WellSky, and our clients are better because of Kno2’s commitment to excellence in the field of interoperability.”
From its inception, Kno2 has connected every meaningful network and endpoint involved in the exchange of patient information, and in turn has become the most expansive and comprehensive communication network available in healthcare today, unifying and centralizing complete clinical exchange workflows in a single solution. Our QHIN connection will be developed within our existing Communication API, simplifying the effort required by new and existing technology vendors and providers to participate in TEFCA.
Kno2’s passion to democratize health information exchange for all includes connecting and representing the needs of historically overlooked healthcare segments including post-acute, therapies, EMS, vision, dental, behavioral health, specialty providers and others. Kno2’s current network is already connected to 80% of the EHRs supporting these care settings, thus making access to the complete patient record possible, regardless of the communication preference of each provider.
Kno2 dedicates tremendous time and resource to participation and leadership for national and regional industry initiatives that are defining the path forward for interoperability. From the beginning, Kno2 has provided early, lasting and active participation of the Common Agreement Workgroup, with continued participation in shaping the future of TEFCA.
As the most tenured and expansive network of networks, every new connectivity effort has been approached with thoughtful design and innovation around the core tenants of SEND, RECEIVE and FIND. With nearly a decade of innovation and expansion around push and pull-based networks such as Direct Secure Messaging, becoming an initial implementer of Carequality and connecting to many the nations HIEs, Kno2 is well-positioned to becoming a QHIN.

All too often in healthcare, individual connections pop up in a´ la carte fashion when a new way of sharing patient information arises. This should not be the case. Our QHIN connection will be developed within our existing Communication API, simplifying the effort required by new and existing technology vendors and providers to participate in TEFCA.
Kno2 has an entire foundation established for optimized sending, receiving and finding patient information already within the platform. For us, QHIN designation goes well beyond doing the fundamental work required by TEFCA. This effort will be about maximizing the value of the workflows each participant receives from QHIN-to-QHIN exchange. We will not lose our focus to innovation as we ensure adoption and the best experience not only to our partners and customers, but other QHINs we connect to, their customers and all of healthcare.
Kno2’s comprehensive, yet flexible, network addresses every exchange workflow, giving developers and providers the freedom to streamline communications broadly and connect everywhere. Quickly transition disparate workflows into centralized and streamlined communications customized to your organization, improving staff efficiency and patient care.
Imagine making one simple connection to our network and being able to communicate across healthcare effortlessly. Kno2’s ingenuity has made this possible by tackling the heavy lift of connecting to multiple networks and end points involved in the exchange of patient information. Our innovation continues with our pursuit to QHIN designation as we seek to maximize the communication and workflows through the platform, ensuring the greatest adoption of interoperability, ultimately improving the patient and provider experience.
