Health Information Technology

The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HiMSS) and the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) released a toolkit to help public health departments understand: 1) health information exchange (HIE) services, and the types of organizations providing them; 2) how a health department might use or support such services; and 3) how to assess whether the value of participating in HIE will be worthwhile.
