HIE Toolkit

Electronic health information exchange (HIE) involves the ability to move clinical information among different information systems to facilitate the timely access of accurate data in support of patient-centered care. The term HIE can refer either to the concept of exchanging health-related data itself or to an organization that focuses on securing this exchange.

Developed through the Rural Health Information Technology Network Development (RHITND) program, the HIE Toolkit offers key guidelines and requirements for rural health networks and organizations to consider when engaging in the exchange of health information or when joining an HIE organization.
