From the ONC Announcement:
"ONC's Office of the Chief Privacy Officer recently awarded a contract to find an efficient, effective, and innovative way to help patients better understand their choices regarding whether and when their health care provider can share their health information electronically, including sharing it with a health information exchange organization. The project team will design, develop, and pilot innovative ways to electronically implement existing patient choice policies, while improving business processes for health care providers.
To learn more about the E-Consent Trial project, please see the Statement of Work. ONC's formal launch of the E-Consent Trial Project will be in October."
