Healthcare information exchange (HIE) is an integral part of health information technology (HIT) infrastructure. HIE refers to the mobilization of healthcare information electronically within defined geographical area to bring healthcare stakeholder together.Stakeholder includes pateints, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, labs, and other health care providers.

Timely sharing of patient information helps in effective decision making the time of point of care, avoids readmissions, medication erros, decreases duplicate testing and improve diagnosis rate. HIE consists of clinical data from providers, activity and cost data from payers and providers, and public health data. The technology provides high standard of patient care along with reduced expenses associated with manual printing of document, physical mailing of patient records, time and efforts involved in recovering patient reports. However, structure and geographical scope of HIEs may vary across the country. Some may serve to small geographic region, some across the state or some may serve to the multistate region.
