Secrets of HIE Success Revealed: Lessons from the Leaders

The National eHealth Collaborative (NeHC) will release the much anticipated report, Secrets of HIE Success Revealed: Lessons from the Leaders, during a live webinar on Tuesday, August 2, 2011. The program will feature Kate Berry, CEO of NeHC, and executives from the 12 HIEs profiled in the report. You can access information on the webinar HERE.

NeHC recently hosted the HIE Leaders Roundtable to introduce the 12 HIE leaders and preview the findings of the report, Secrets of HIE Success Revealed: Lessons from the Leaders. During the event, the leaders were asked to give a brief overview of their organizations and comment on their sustainability models. The discussion also covered how the HIEs are engaging consumers and offering services to empower them to become more engaged in their care.



The report was commissioned by NeHC in order to provide in-depth studies of successful and mature HIEs in diverse geographies and market types. The report captures the key dimensions of success for HIE leadership and sustainability, provides insight and guidance for emerging HIEs, and contributes to the development of a national roadmap for health information exchange. The report aims to continue this conversation and provide a guide for emerging HIEs. In developing the report, NeHC worked with the State HIE and Beacon Community teams at the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) to ensure that the findings in the report would provide value and work to inform the ongoing conversation about the national roadmap for HIE to improve healthcare for all Americans.
