Health Information Exchange Success

Through the eHealth Initiative (eHI) 2010 National Survey on Health Information Exchange, 18 health information exchange initiatives were identified as being sustainable. These initiatives are operational, are not dependant on federal funding, and have broken even through operational revenue. Watch the eHI video below as Bill Beighe, CEO, Santa Cruz HIE discusses how his organization has succeeded and created a sustainable business model.

Santa Cruz HIE has been exchanging data in a multi-stakeholder environment for more than a decade, but now data needs to be to be seamlessly exchanged across the entire spectrum of care in order to achieve Meaningful Use. With over 300 providers, 42 specialties, and 100 locations, Physicians Medical Group of Santa Cruz County (PMG) is the organization that supports and connects them all to each other via the Santa Cruz HIE. Santa Cruz HIE uses the Axolotl HIE solution.
