HIEs Deliver Savings to Rural Hospitals
According the report, successful HIEs have several things in common: strong leadership; continually aligning stakeholders with the HIE's priorities; becoming a trusted, neutral entity; and having competing businesses or entities partnering with one another. Berry also highlighted the "balance of mission and business" and a focus on making decisions based on real value.
"There's lots of good news in this report that shows that this can be done," Berry said. "And it can be done in a way that really makes healthcare better and is not terribly disruptive to the provider."
