Evidence Supporting the Value of Health Information Exchanges

Posted 4:33 PM by

Recently, the Indianapolis Business Journal spotlighted a study on emergency room utilization patterns. The general conclusion was that there is much less loyalty towards one hospital or health system than previously assumed.

What this story did not dwell on was the need for regional technology alignment for healthcare providers. Based on this study, we believe that vehicles such as health information exchanges ("HIE") are more important than previously believed in terms of saving lives and managing the total healthcare spend. 

The findings are evidence that HIEs can foster meaningful clinical integration across health systems and may be a cheaper, more efficient way to bend the cost curve and improve quality than all of the recent healthcare mergers and acquisitions.
