SHIEC strives to enable the secure exchange of patient information to improve the quality, coordination, and cost-effectiveness of healthcare locally, regionally and nationally. We are the largest consortium of its kind in the country, representing 76 HIEs that together cover more than 92% of the United States population, and 125+ total organizations.
We advocate on behalf of our member organizations to ensure their needs are represented in nationwide conversations about critical healthcare issues, including health IT, health data sharing and stewardship.
Educate public and private entities regarding the benefits, functions and roles of HIEs
Promote business conditions, tools and legislation to improve the effectiveness and sustainability of HIEs
Achieve economies of scale while supporting members’ autonomy and ability to serve local needs
SHIEC members include some of the most successful HIEs in the country, who have joined because we provide a highly collaborative environment where HIEs can learn from, work with and counsel each other. We have helped elevate the entire HIE market by encouraging HIEs to work together, share best practices and participate in nationwide interoperability efforts.
