Abstract

Demonstrating the effectiveness of health information exchange (HIE) in reducing costs, improving outcomes, and creating more efficient care delivery systems requires evaluation. To evaluate is to measure the significance or value that HIE brings to patient and population health. This chapter describes strategies and methods for evaluating HIE, principally from the perspective of a health system or other entity engaged in the implementation and use of HIE. The chapter begins with a review of the various types of evaluation, including research. Then the chapter outlines a strategy and the methods for the evaluation of HIE. Finally, the chapter provides guidance for how to disseminate outcomes from HIE development, implementation, adoption, and use. Only by evaluating HIE and sharing lessons can we expand the evidence base for HIE in support of adoption and sustainability.
