About the Strategic Health Information Exchange Collaborative (SHIEC)

The Strategic Health Information Exchange Collaborative (SHIEC) is a nonprofit national consortium of statewide, regional and community health information exchanges (HIEs) and a trade association that assists our member organizations through the exchange of ideas and business practices as well as through public education and advocacy.

SHIEC Fact Sheet

About SHIEC Members

The member organizations of SHIEC are regional, statewide and community HIEs that occupy a unique position in many key health care geographic regions or markets across the country. 

In the markets we serve, SHIEC members:

  • Serve as an unbiased community data trustee of health information;
  • Offer a single community connection to bridge and connect health care systems, private HIEs and independent community providers, and health plans;
  • Fill gaps in patient health information for more comprehensive patient records;
  • Provide near real-time access to patient information or gaps in patient information for better clinical decisions; and
  • Improve health care outcomes and quality by supporting cross-system risk stratification, population health analytics and other aggregate data analysis.

Our regional and community HIEs do not provide health care services, produce health care data nor compete in the marketplace; instead our unique role is to serve as the community data trustee to facilitate community and regional health information exchange among participants across disparate health care systems.;

Our member organizations advance the Triple Aim of better care, better outcomes and lower costs by:

  • Improving care coordination and care management across disparate health care systems and the health care community;
  • Enabling more informed clinical decision making through more comprehensive patient records and near real-time notification of health care events and results;
  • Aggregating better information and analysis through cross-system risk stratification and population health analytics; and
  • Eliminating unnecessary or duplicative tests and procedures, and reducing hospital readmissions and other preventable expenditures.
