The Value of a Good Health Information Exchange with Dr. Samit Desai

As CMIOs we do not learn a lot about HIEs and there isn't a class you can go take to brush up on this topic. So to learn more, I interviewed the smartest person I know on the topic. Dr. Samit Desai is an emergency physician, and the chief medical officer at Audacious Inquiry, a company that partners with our state HIE (called CRISP). We discuss how HIEs help us with population health, how these entities function, and where we hope to get to with improved interoperability.
