Abstract

Health information exchange (HIE) seeks to facilitate the electronic sharing of patient information across organizations so that it available when and where it is needed by clinicians and other key stakeholders. While HIE has been pursued at both policy and organizational levels for many years, it is still a work-in-progress. Some types of information are routinely electronically exchanged while others are not; some communities have achieved robust interconnectivity while others have not; and some countries have mature HIE policies while others are early in their development. Thus, HIE will continue to be an active domain and is increasingly the top priority of countries that have invested in electronic health records. This chapter begins by describing near-term, pressing HIE challenges, which are the focus of current efforts to advance HIE and then addresses the opportunities created for informatics research and for professionals. We conclude by discussing long-term trends that are anticipated to shape the future direction of HIE.
