The healthcare industry has seen the effects of the digital age in the advent of electronic health records (EHRs), which allow patient Protected Health Information (PHI) to be stored in a versatile, transferrable electronic format. Through the use of health information exchange (HIE), the transmission of clinical data amongst healthcare facilities, health information organizations (HIOs) and government agencies, doctors now have the ability to share EHRs to analyze health patterns of the general population. As such, efforts are underway at the state, regional and national level to expand the use of HIE as a means to quicker and more accurate diagnoses of patients with similar symptoms and histories, thereby facilitating more effective treatment and continuity of care.
