Balloting Open on HIE Standards

Industry stakeholders are invited to vote between now and May 9 on proposed health information exchange specifications.

The specifications result from the HL7/IHE Health Story Implementation Guide Consolidation Project. The Office of the National Coordinated in January launched the initiative to consolidate and harmonize required health information exchange specifications that support meaningful use of electronic health record systems.

Project collaborators include the Health Level Seven International standards development organization, the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise industry stakeholder initiative and the Health Story Project, an industry collaborative that develops technical implementation guides for electronic documents transmitted using HL7 standards.

Instructions for voting are available here.
