CHIME debuts HIE guide

InformationWeek, November 18, 2011

As the importance of exchanging patient data through health information exchanges grows, the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) and the eHealth Initiative have released a guide that offers practical assistance on measures to successfully implement these exchanges. The HIE Guide for CIOs is a Web-based tool that executives at CHIME and eHI hope will be used to help healthcare organizations demonstrate one of the core requirements of Stage 1 Meaningful Use, which is to electronically exchange key clinical information among providers of care and patient authorized entities.
