About WEDI
The Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) is the leading authority on the use of Health IT to improve healthcare information exchange in order to enhance the quality of care, improve efficiency, and reduce costs of our nation’s healthcare system. WEDI was formed in 1991 by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) and was designated in the 1996 HIPAA legislation as an advisor to HHS. WEDI’s membership includes a broad coalition of organizations, including: hospitals, providers, health plans, vendors, government agencies, consumers, not-for-profit organizations, and standards bodies.

About the 2013 WEDI Report
On the 20th anniversary of the original WEDI Report, WEDI is bringing together healthcare, corporate and government organizations to create an updated WEDI Report to guide the future of health information exchange. The 2013 WEDI Report will be overseen by a WEDI Report Executive Steering Committee consisting of representatives from 15 organizations representing healthcare, corporate, and government organizations, and led as Honorary Chair by former Secretary of HHS, The Honorable Louis W. Sullivan, M.D, who established WEDI in 1991.

The 2013 WEDI Report will identify the impacts of administrative and clinical technologies on the healthcare industry since 1993 and the likely role of emergent technologies in the years ahead. High-level lessons learned and the impact of technology and market forces on the original recommendations will also be documented in the updated report.

WEDI Report’s Founding Sponsors are Availity, RTI, Verizon and the WEDI Foundation.
