California HIE Sails Uncharted Waters
Inland Empire Health Information Exchange combines public and private exchanges, which appeals to participants worried about competition.
The Inland Empire Health Information Exchange (IEHIE), which recently went live in southern California, stands the debate over public vs. private HIEs on its head: Although it’s a regional HIE–one of the largest in the country, in fact–it also serves as an enterprise HIE for some of its participants. Coupled with the fact that the exchange is already financially self-sustaining, this hybrid model carries some lessons for struggling community HIEs elsewhere in the nation.

Inland Empire HIE Goes Live with Community-Wide Health Information Exchange
April 27, 2012
Extraordinarily Rapid Deployment of the Exchange, Powered by Orion Health Technology, is Major Milestone for IEHIE that Will Enable Clinicians in San Bernardino and Riverside Counties to Improve Care for More Than 4.1 Million Residents.
RIVERSIDE, CA – Inland Empire Health Information Exchange (IEHIE), a self-funded collaborative of Riverside and San Bernardino County hospitals, medical centers, physician practices, health plans, public health organizations and other healthcare providers, today announced that its powerful health information exchange solution is live. The exchange, powered by Orion Health technology, was put into production in just over 80 days from the project’s initiation, an extraordinarily rapid deployment compared to industry norms. The go-live represents a major milestone in the development of IEHIE, which will enable clinicians to access and share patient health records and improve care coordination for more than 4.1 million people living in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. IEHIE, one of the country’s largest health information exchanges, was founded in 2010 and is fully and privately funded through 52 participating healthcare organizations in the region.
“The go-live of Inland Empire HIE, achieved in a very short time frame, brings us a huge step closer to our goal of becoming one of the country’s most successful, self-sustaining HIEs,” said Richard Swafford, Executive Director, IEHIE. “Supported by Orion Health as our core technology partner, we will be able to implement care programs that will make a noticeable impact on patient care in our community.”
The 52 organizations currently involved in IEHIE include 21 hospitals, 25 medical groups, the two local medical associations, the hospital association, both County Public Health Departments and Clinics, and Inland Empire Health Plan, a not-for-profit public health plan serving more than 530,000 low-income members. Eighteen organizations, supporting roughly 3,000 hospital beds, 900 physicians and over 1.1 million patients in the region, have enrolled in IEHIE to date.

Inland Empire HIE set to make community HIE successful
At a time when the value and sustainability of public health information exchanges (HIEs) are being questioned, Inland Empire Health Information Exchange (IEHIE), which plans to go live on April 1, is making a case for both.
IEHIE, comprising 48 healthcare organizations in Riverside and San Bernardino counties including hospitals, physicians and payers, boasts an operational self-funded business model and a collaborative spirit. These two critical components make IEHIE unique, according to Executive Director Richard Swafford.
