The Value of Health Information Exchange

Health information exchange (HIE), the sharing of clinical and administrative data across the boundaries of healthcare institutions and other health data repositories, is imperative to recent efforts to achieve the Triple Aim of healthcare: improving care for individuals, bettering health for populations, and reducing costs.

Many stakeholder groups (payers, patients, providers, and others) realize that if such data are shared, healthcare processes would improve with respect to safety, quality, cost, and other indicators.

Explore recent examples showcasing the value of health information exchange, including the Statewide Health Information Exchange for New York (SHIN-NY), on our new page, The Value of Health Information Exchange.
