HIE Policies

For those experienced in HIE activities, has your facility developed policies and procedures? I'm am actively researching AHIMA resources to find sample policies for our front-line registration staff and HIM personnel.

Thank you.

    We have begun this process but each state may differ depending on whether your patients are automatically opted "in" or "out".

    Yes our patients are going to be automatically opted in, but I was looking for a policy that would aid in the training of our staff to better explain this to patients. I did find that AHIMA has a brochure explaining the benefits of HIE.

    Our state HIE actually provided this to our sites . We haven't created anything in addition, at this point in time.

    Who is your State HIE contact? What office are they in? I haven't found Texas's HIE yet.
