Evaluating Health Information Exchange Projects

AHRQ's Guide to Evaluating Health Information Exchange Projects  has been updated to help those involved in health information exchange (HIE) projects evaluate them and create an evaluation plan. The guide has six sections to help users through the evaluation process.

An HIE project evaluation can—

  • Help an organization provide an assessment of the project’s impact on health care.
  • Guide data exchange processes.
  • Point to barriers or unanticipated consequences of implementing an HIE project.
  • Assess the longer term clinical and financial impacts of an HIE project.
  • Demonstrate return on investment.
