With each phase of work, Connecting for Health has convened experts from across the health care and technology spectrum into new working groups. Typically, working groups have been assembled to tackle a specific aspect of the policy or technical requirements for private and secure health information exchange.

The Connecting for Health Work Group on Consumer Engagement developed the idea of a blue button for people to be able to download their personal health information.
