Grow your own health information exchange
A recent report from Chilmark Research for instance, shows that while the HIE market grew more than 40% in the past year, most of that growth came in privately sponsored, enterprise health information exchanges, rather than in public health information exchanges that seek to connect providers across regions and states. The main reasons for the rapid health information exchange growth, according to Chilmark, are the Meaningful Use criteria that will require interoperability between systems as patients are moved from one care setting to another, and the impending changes in reimbursement methods that will necessitate greater care coordination.
