Get Connected with HIE

CHC is the best place for healthcare organizations to explore how Cerner continues to connect outside the four walls. This year’s theme — Get Connected — is especially fitting with growing attention to a nationwide healthcare information system that spans across IT platforms.

Health Information Exchange (HIE) is a core component of the development of this system that promotes connectivity among users of healthcare IT. A successful HIE strategy makes all relevant patient information available where it’s needed, when it’s needed, and by whom it’s needed. Simple, right?

One session in this year’s Power Session lineup is dedicated to HIE best practices. During this session, you have the opportunity to hear from thought leaders of HIE strategy and how they’ve rallied multiple organizations, both private and public, to participate in successful, sustainable HIEs. One health information organization (HIO) will divulge the value of ROI data to financial viability, while another HIO will describe its impact to ambulatory EMR adoption.

You can also learn more about Cerner’s facilitation of HIE in the Interoperability Pavilion in the 2009 Solutions Gallery.  While you’re there, you might just overhear a conversation about the latest health reform and how your organization may qualify for meaningful use requirements.
