Our Fall 2019 Learning Collaborative focused on Query HIE, which uses the Query-based Exchange method to query (search) and retrieve patient information that was made accessible by other care providers. Query HIE is made available by many EHR vendors, often in collaboration with the Commonwell and Carequality initiatives.
Participants from ten healthcare organizations, representing a variety of settings including hospitals, ambulatory care, behavioral health, and vendors, offered their experiences and perspectives on Query HIE. Together, the group helped to create and refine our Query HIE Toolkit. The Toolkit features several resources including an overview of Query HIE functionality, a vendor status directory, sample workflows, and FAQs.
