Benefits of eHealth Exchange for Regional and State Health Information Exchanges (HIE)
John Kansky, President and CEO of Indiana Health Information Exchange
The ability to exchange health information electronically between healthcare organizations has been a force multiplier for regional and state health information exchanges. For example, it enabled the Indiana Health Information Exchange to transact with the Veterans Health Administration and the Social Security Administration, as well as conduct other important use cases. The eHealth Exchange promotes interoperability on a national scale so regional exchanges can benefit by expanding their reach to improve their care decisions.
