Extra HIE Resources
The September practice brief “Understanding the HIE Landscape” includes three Web-only appendixes that provide more information on the current state of health information exchange.
Appendix A lists the State Health Information Exchange Cooperative Agreement Programs and State Designated Entities that were awarded HIE grants as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Appendix B outlines a volunteer description for CSA HIE representatives. Appendix C spells out talking points for HIM professionals looking to get involved in HIEs.
HIM professionals are uniquely qualified to participate in HIE development and operations. However, those involved with developing and running many HIEs often times do not realize the value that HIM professionals bring to the table. These resources can help HIM professionals get their foot in the door.
