IHE and Intel®: Delivering a Foundation for Interoperable Health Information Exchange

Intel® Services

Despite the growing prevalence of electronic medical records in healthcare facilities throughout the country, coordination of care among institutions can still be a nightmare. Individual systems are rarely interoperable; the lax adherence to data standards breeds chaos, and HIPAA guidelines become more difficult to enforce; health plans are reluctant to participate particularly if the cost to implement new technology is prohibitive; and patients still approach their own health care choices passively, ill-equipped to make informed decisions.

The IHE framework and process provides a model that can help address these challenges of inefficient care coordination, disconnected data silos, and proprietary, non-scalable and cost prohibitive integration strategies.
