Washington-based eHealth Initiative, a collaborative industry advocacy organization, has released the second of three new enhancements to its Health Information Exchange Toolkit.

The first phase released in April was a primer addressing steps for starting an HIE. These included creating a governance model, drafting legal and information sharing agreements, and protecting patient privacy, among other issues, along with sample products.

The second phase now available addresses the next steps--creating a sustainable model, technical aspects of connectivity, marketing and promoting HIE, enhancing services and tracking progress. The toolkit also includes links to sample sustainability documents and marketing materials.

A third enhancement later this year, which will complete the third generation version of the toolkit first published in 2006, will cover new market developments including Affordable Care Act provisions and the value of data analytics. The tool kit is available here.
