Target Audience:

Practicing health and clinical informaticians, clinicians, and other health care professionals who are using or interested in learning about Health Information Exchange (HIE) for data transmission and retrieval.


We are in a new era of care that affects both providers and patients. Delivery of care is no longer driven by the fee-for-service model and is instead moving toward value-based care. Exchange of health data and interoperability of health information systems has become an expectation. To ensure health care quality standards and reimbursement requirements are met, leaders in the health care industry and health/nursing informaticians must be able to leverage available data and robust tools from HIE, which most states have implemented.

This half-day workshop will provide attendees with a practical overview of HIE and interoperability and its impact on clinical care and reimbursement. It will also demonstrate how HIE is being used in both clinical and health care informatics settings using an example regional health exchange service called the Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP). The workshop will include didactic lectures, hands-on demonstrations, and group activities.
