Touchstone will be unavailable Thursday, June 20th beginning at 8:00 am ET. We expect Touchstone to be unavailable for most of the day for infrastructure enhancements.

Touchstone is an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Testing as a Service (TaaS) Open Access Solution for health information exchange. Touchstone strives to live up to its dictionary definition - a criterion for determining the quality or genuineness of a thing - by offering thousands of tests in an easy-to-use system for determining a test system's conformance and interoperability against published specifications, standards, and profiles, including templates and implementation guides.
