Transforming patient care with data interoperability and trust is a common healthcare industry goal. Three industry experts share their thoughts on how to achieve next-generation health information exchange.

Both EHR interoperability and health information exchange (HIE) will play a major role as the healthcare industry continues to reform and develop more effective patient care strategies. Incentives tied to meeting Meaningful Use (MU) requirements and healthcare reform serve as prime motivators in increasing provider interest and participation in the exchange of health information, according to an NORC at the University of Chicago report presented to the ONC for Health Information Technology. With all of these initiatives, however, comes the issue of rising costs, which promise to continue to present a challenge for providers and HIE adoption.

Sheldon Wolf, North Dakota Health Information technology director, who leads the North Dakota Health Information Network (NDHIN) initiative; Julia Staas, IS director of integration at Virtua Health who in that role also oversees the Virtua Health Information Exchange program; and John Kansky, president and CEO of the Indiana Health Information Exchange (IHIE), weigh in on what it will take to achieve next-generation health data exchange.
