Welcome to the CARIN Alliance

The CARIN Alliance is a bipartisan, multi-sector collaborative working to advance consumer-directed exchange of health information.


Convened by David Blumenthal, David Brailer, Aneesh Chopra, and Mike Leavitt in early 2016, its members include leading U.S. organizations in three categories:

  • Consumers – Consumer advocates, purchasers, and others.
  • HIPAA covered entities – Providers, plans and clearinghouses, and their business associates.
  • HIPAA non-covered entities – Consumer-facing digital health apps, devices and services, consumer platforms, researchers, and infrastructure firms including standards setting organizations, identity providers, certifiers, and data exchange networks.
