ACOs are coming, will HIEs be there?
from Health Data Management
The Obama administration shepherded through the HITECH Act in 2009 to accelerate adoption of information technology to support the healthcare reform initiative, which heavily relies on IT and health information exchange to manage a new health system centered on the patient, value and outcomes. One of the centerpieces of the effort was support for the development of health information exchanges. But the big question facing the industry is what role, if any, HIEs can and will play in supporting the newest federal idea: accountable care organizations.
