KLAS Senior Research Director Mark Allphin talks about major vendors in the HIE space and what HIT leadership can learn from the recent study

Welcome to this Healthcare Informatics Podcast with Mark Allphin, senior research director at KLAS Research and HCI Editor Jennifer Prestigiacomo. Beyond the big headline that the total number of live health information exchanges (HIEs) more than doubled in the past year, the recent study from the Orem, Utah-based KLAS Research showed what HIE vendors were becoming major players and what new vendors to look out for. In this Healthcare Informatics podcast with the report’s lead author Mark Allphin, we discuss this nascent vendor community, as well as what healthcare IT leadership should know about building successful HIEs, including bringing naysayer physicians onboard first. Click below for excerpts from that discussion.
