This session is part of a special program called AMDIS/HIMSS Physicians’ Executive IT Symposium: Unlocking Value and Embracing Change. Extra fees and registration may be required.


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.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Explain the clinical benefit and impact interoperability can have on a population
  • Analyze the role of the HIE in the advancement of specific population health goals
  • Evaluate the challenges and barriers to interoperability required for health information exchange to be effective
