Wikipedia defines a health information exchange (HIE) as the mobilization of healthcare information electronically across organizations within a region, community or hospital system.
The emergence of HIEs is widely expected to provide a range of important benefits for patients, physicians, and the healthcare industry as a whole.The HIE provides the capability to electronically move clinical information among disparate health care information systems while at the same time maintaining the meaning of the information being exchanged. The goal of the HIE is to facilitate access to and retrieval of clinical data to provide safer and more timely, efficient, effective, and equitable patient-centered care.
