Outcomes from health information exchange: systematic review and future research needs.
The authors systematically reviewed the available research on health information exchange (HIE) outcomes and analyzed future research needs. After analyzing 34 studies on outcomes of HIE, they found that although the evidence supports benefits of HIE in reducing the use of specific resources and improving the quality of care, the full impact of HIE on clinical outcomes and potential harms are inadequately studied.
