Hawaii Health Information Exchange (HHIE)
The Hawaii Health Information Exchange (Hawaii HIE) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit established in 2006 by leading health care stakeholders in Hawaii for the purpose of improving health care delivery throughout the state through seamless, effective, and safe health information exchange.
In September of 2009, Hawaii HIE was designated by the state to develop and implement a statewide health information exchange that will ultimately feed into the national health information network. Hawaii HIE has a strong and representative composition of board stakeholders who are determined to transform the current state of health care in Hawaii into one that coordinates care, reduces costs (for patients and providers), addresses the needs of the aging population, and provides incentives to patients to take a more proactive approach to their health care.
The opportunities afforded by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009 will help Hawaii to expedite its long-term HIE goals in less than five years.
