6 HIE Vendors: How They Measure Up

Not all health information exchanges have successfully bridged the interoperability gap. A recent KLAS report on HIE vendors evaluated how well they deliver on their promises.

KLAS declares the Cerner Hub a "good HIE product" for exchanges in the Cerner network, particularly when it comes to outpatient networking. It was the only HIE vendor with scores that improved since the previous year's report, and it saw increased ratings in support and development. Users described active engagement from Cerner on developing a better patient portal and bidirectional exchange. The Cerner Hub also saw improved ability to exchange with non-Cerner EMRs when working with its partner, Certify Data Systems. Providers use the Hub primarily to share laboratory and radiology results, but it does need development around bidirectional orders and analytic capability, according to the report.

re: 6 HIE Vendors: How They Measure Up
It is important to choose the package that fits your requirements, it also very important to have the right infrastructure and to make sure that your software and infrastructure match. By load testing your application with virtual users, you can ensure you'll get the right performance before you go live. There are two schools of thought when it comes to automated performance testing. One looks at the back-end database and network activity to derive the performance. The other looks at time it takes the end-user to perform a task. We believe that true performance testing of any healthcare systems should be tested from the end user perspective and that is why we created our testing suite.

Everyone should consider the fact that KLAS reviews are pay-to-play, which is an inherent conflict of interest for fairly evaluating software. Favorable review frequently go to the highest bidder.
