America's top model. As the health information exchange market heats up--with vendors jockeying for position and funds being allocated--one state is paving the way.


As states move forward in establishing health information exchanges (HIEs), many are looking to New York State for guidance. New York, which got an early start in building a data exchange program, has been successful in securing private investments to supplement its public funds. It has also established a credible infrastructure, governance and policy framework for a statewide HIE network. However, significant hurdles to successful HIE implementation remain. One industry report cautions that policy, security, patient consent, lack of data standards and physician acceptance still need to be addressed.
