University of Maryland Researchers Develop Framework to Assess HIEs

The Center for Health Information and Decision Systems at the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business has developed a new framework to help states and Washington, D.C., create self-sustaining and effective networks for the exchange of electronic health records, according to a university news release.

The CHIDS HIE Evaluation Framework offers a methodology for assessing any regional health information organization across the nation. Health information exchanges are evaluated on five key performance components: the value creation and sustainability of its business model; organizational structure and decision-making processes; technology; community engagement; and trust in the system.

The CHIDS HIE Evaluation Framework and associated recommendations are based on the information and documents provided by key stakeholders of the DC RHIO, an environmental scan of HIE efforts across the nation, best practices published in the literature and benchmarking with leading HIEs.
