What is HIE?
Health information exchange (HIE) refers to the policies, procedures, and technology used to share your health information electronically and securely over the internet. HIE is a critical part of making sure your care is safer, more timely, and of higher quality.
Who is providing HIE Services in California?
Two primary groups of health information organizations have emerged in California that implement and offer HIE capabilities to physicians for access to crucial patient data. Hospital systems implement HIE technology within their health systems to electronically share information on patients seen within their facilities. In contrast, Community Health Information Organizations (HIOs) consist of distinct groups of unaffiliated providers sharing patient data across facilities and between providers to benefit patients in a community.
