Mature HIEs build trust to share data, IT

Oklahoma health information exchange SMRTNET has managed to build a network of seven networks and has attracted a broad range of 3,000 providers in 2011 that share data between hospitals, Native American tribes, community health centers, labs, universities and private physicians. The individual networks exchange data statewide using a shared set of common resources and privacy policies. The Secure Medical Records Transfer Network, a statewide non-profit organization, is one of the examples that the National eHealth Collaborative highlighted in its report of case studies of 12 sustainable and mature health information exchange organizations across a variety of geographic regions. The HIEs follow a number of business and marketing models, according to NeHC, which is a public/private partnership that promotes secure health information exchange, in "Secrets of HIE Success Revealed: Lessons from the Leaders," released Aug. 2.
