Embrace Health Information Exchanges

Promote understanding of rules and regulations of regional information exchanges in your organization.

  • Identify external stakeholders with whom you must share data with and allocate resources internally to work with them.

  • Plan for exchange of data that may not be complete.

  • Define your role within the HIE and acknowledge who is the keeper, primary provider, and custodian of the data.

    • Some HIEs may be able to help your organization create these role definitions and organizational structures.

  • Research the emerging private HIEs and ACOs and meet with stakeholders from those organizations for further evaluation

    • Review the options and benefits of each HIE measured against your organization’s strategic and tactical plans.
