Impact of eHealth Exchange on Nationwide Interoperability
The eHealth Exchange functions at a national level to connect existing health information networks and healthcare organizations to improve the secure and information flow of patient data. Leveraging existing health IT infrastructure is an integral element of the federal plan for achieving nationwide interoperability and successfully implementing a learning health system. The eHealth Exchange is a prime example of this idea in action.
Recent developments demonstrate the capabilities of the nationwide network to forge important connections between healthcare providers and health IT systems.
