MeHI develops HIE spotlight stories to showcase the progress made throughout the Commonwealth in the implementation of Health Information Exchange. Spotlight stories describe an organization's challenge, how health information exchange provided an effective solution, and the impact this had on workflow efficiencies, communication, and/or patient care.
We encourage you to review the stories in this library when planning your HIE implementation, for instance to model after similar HIE use cases, to find tips to overcome interoperability or workflow challenges, or to learn about the impact HIE can have on patient care.
