The North Carolina Hospital Association and North Carolina Medical Society are working with two delivery systems to pilot and launch a statewide health information exchange.

The North Carolina Healthcare Exchange is not the entity that has received HITECH Act funding to establish a state-level HIE. That entity, called NCHIE, is only creating a backbone infrastructure and not a full service HIE.
