Use a cloud base database for all data that all entities [pts. drs. hosp. ect.] can push and pull from. This should be govt funded and maintained. Then we could stop meaningful use ect. because the govt holds the data and can do the statistics and HIPPA and let us practice medicine. Stop wasting health care dollars, think it though. All HIEs do is create new internet with layers of HIPPA thrown in!

Still quite perplexed that HIEs have moved forward with the speed they have in the absence of solving the endemic problem of accurately identifying patients in a healthcare setting. Seems a little like putting the cart before the horse because after all, the success or failure of an HIE is very much dependent on the quality and accuracy of data the exists. Still can't understand why more isn't being accomplished to establish standardized patient demographic information or incorporation of a standardized patient ID tool, such as iris biometrics which would help solve the "dirty data" problem.
