The Current State of US Health Information Exchange
Posted Feb 22 2011 6:00am
As Massachusetts formulates its health information exchange goals, priorities, and business models, we've been curious about plans in other states. We've reviewed case studies, blogs, and academic papers. However, there has not been a collected summary of the national HIE experience we could reference.
That resource is now available.
ONC released 3 valuable documents that I highly recommend to all HIE stakeholders.
As states implement live data exchange in support of Meaningful Use stage 1,2 and 3 over the next 5 years, there will be remarkable lessons learned by comparing the relative success of these models. It's unlikely that one size will fit all, but successes and failures will lead us to a parsimony of models which sustainably connect every provider, patient and payer in the country.
