Environmental Scans Provide Suggestions for HIT/HIE Advancement

The Arizona Strategic Enterprise Technology office (ASET) administers the Arizona Health Information Exchange (HIE) Cooperative Agreement Program that supports the advancement and adoption of HIE through several grant-funded initiatives in the state. Through this program and other outreach, ASET has engaged in a range of strategic initiatives to support health care providers in adopting health information exchange tools to improve health care quality and delivery. To better understand how organizations are adopting information technology and assess their readiness to implement HIE, the ASET office conducted interviews with 32 thought leaders representing 19 different and unique organizations this past fall. ASET did a broad scan of HIE across the state and summarized the common barriers to exchange, the drivers of HIE participation, and the types of assistance needed to increase providers’ exchange capabilities.

What HIE means for you...

Health Information Exchange (HIE) provides the capability to electronically move clinical information among disparate health care information systems while maintaining the meaning of the information being exchanged. HIE systems facilitate physicians and clinicians meeting high standards of patient care through electronic participation in a patient's continuity of care with multiple providers.

Secondary health care provider benefits include reduced expenses associated with: duplicate tests, time involved in recovering missing patient information, paper, ink and associated office machinery, manual printing, scanning and faxing of documents, the physical mailing of entire patient charts, and manual phone communication to verify delivery of traditional communications, referrals and test results.
