Key Information is available for all considering purchasing or upgrading an EHR. To familiarize yourself with the available interfaces that may serve you, review the California Health eQuality HIE Ready Buyer’s Guide. The vendors included are all willing to be transparent about their interfaces and costs. If a vendor you are considering isn’t included here, you may wish to ask them why they do not participate.
As you plan your purchase, be sure that the interfaces you will ultimately need in order to connect to your HIE are included & qualify for the Meaningful Use Stage 2 interoperability requirements. Need to know more about Stage 2? Read our Guide.
