Abstract

This report examines the policies, procedures, technologies, and systems used to facilitate communication, data sharing, and health information exchange (HIE) among three segments of the healthcare community in Maryland: health system/care practices, payers, and community programs/providers. The research takes the form of a gap analysis that envisions an ideal and improved state and compares that to the current state of information sharing. Research efforts include a literature review, a survey, and four focus group discussions that took place during the spring and summer of 2015.
