Questions
I'd love to hear how Christensen addresses two major HIE challenges I've come across: competition and privacy. I've seen practices that are hesitant to participate in an HIE because of the possibillity of losing patients (HIEs make it easier for patients to switch doctors). There's also the issue of privacy. What should be included in an HIE? How much is too much? The sharing of HIV status and psych data, among others, is a hot button issue.
