Data must be accessible and usable to meet the goal of improving quality. The use of data at the point of care leverages not only analytical tools but also a level of interoperability. Health information exchanges (HIE) play a vital role in the movement of data across organizations, communities, and even States in an effort to provide more relevant and cost-effective care for entire populations. The health of a population can be affected both positively and negatively by an HIE’s efforts to move data from point A to B. Hear how organizations are successfully improving the health of populations as the result of a health information exchange.
