NeHC Report on HIE Success

August 2, 2011

Earlier today, the National eHealth Collaborative (NeHC) released a report titled, “Secrets of HIE Success Revealed: Lessons from the Leaders.”  The report provides an overview of the experiences, models/plans, successes, and barriers to success of 12 health information exchange (HIE) organizations/networks.  The subject HIEs were Availity, Big Bend RHIO, HealthBridge, HealthInfoNet, Inland Northwest Health Services, MedVirginia, Quality Health Network, Rochester RHIO, Sandlot, SMRTNET, THINC, and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

NeHC is the private-public evolution of the Office of the National Coordinator for HIT’s (ONC) now defunct American Health Information Community (AHIC).  In the months prior to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, which formally codified ONC and established the HIT Policy and Standards Committees, NeHC was intended to play a central role as ONC’s primary advisory group and continue the work of its spiritual predecessor, AHIC.  However, ARRA altered the direction and mission of the ONC in such a way that NeHC’s role has evolved over the past two years to be less functional and more educational.  ONC currently uses NeHC to communicate to stakeholders about its initiatives in a less “official” setting than the federal advisory committees/workgroups.
