BACKGROUND:  Launched in July, the Verizon Health Information Exchange (HIE) is delivered via Verizon's cloud-computing platform and enables health care organizations to overcome the long-standing obstacle of incompatible health IT platforms and software used to store data in various formats.  By using strong identity access management controls to provide security for sensitive patient data, the Verizon HIE offers the means to consolidate patient clinical data from disparate providers and translates it into a standardized format for secure access over the Web.
