Integrate HIEs into Physician and Staff Workflows for Better Outcomes
Health information exchange technology (HIE) and HIE business relationships play a pivotal role in healthcare providers sharing information in order to improve care and lower cost. Early HIE business models based on stimulus funds are giving way to sustainable subscription-based or joint operating agreement models with providers playing increasingly important roles. HIEs must effectively locate patient records, allow colleagues to exchange messages across organizations, and look to providing additional services, such as exchanging lab test results.
