74% of U.S. Hospitals Plan to Purchase New Health Information Exchange (HIE) Solutions

Burlington, VT  - CapSiteTM announces the release of the 2011 U.S. Health Information Exchange (HIE) Study.  The study is the most recent in a series of CapSite strategic industry reports focused on assessing the impact of the HITECH Act on the U.S. Health Informational Technology (HIT) market. The study represents unique Voice of Customer (VOC) insight from more than 340 hospitals on the market adoption, market opportunity, market share and vendor mind share across the U.S..

 "With the HITECH Act focus on stimulating the exchange of health information and Meaningful Use (MU) of EHRs, our study clearly shows a market that has been increasingly adopting HIE solutions since 2009. We are projecting this market to continue to accelerate over the next 24 months.

 "Additionally, we found that nearly 80% of hospitals either already have or plan to join an HIE.  In contrast, the majority of hospitals were uncertain as to whether they were going to participate in an Accountable Care Organization (ACO)." says CapSite Sr. VP and GM, Gino Johnson.

Voice of Customer (VOC) highlights from the study:

  • 16% of hospitals plan to engage a Professional Services / Consulting firm as part of their HIE strategic planning or vendor selection process
  • The most popular HIE solutions that hospitals plan to purchase:
    • MPI / Patient & Provider Indexes
    • Immunization Reporting
