Background
Health information exchange (HIE) is an important tool for improving efficiency and quality and is required for providers to meet Meaningful Use certification from the United States Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

We assess electronic data exchange activities and identify barriers and benefits to HIE participation in two underserved settings.
