Health Information Exchange Policy Board (HIE)
In 2012, the Mayor of the District of Columbia established the HIE Policy Board to provide recommendations on the secure and protected exchange of health information in the District. The District’s HIE efforts are guided by this twenty-two (22) member volunteer Board that includes representatives from District-based provider associations, hospitals, health systems, payers, providers, Medicaid beneficiaries, information technologists, and District of Columbia Government agencies.
The Board is tasked with making recommendations to the Mayor, and Directors of several key District Government agencies, regarding the District’s HIE policies, mission, definition, vision, geographic scope, and functional scope of HIE operations, and how they should be coordinated with local and national efforts.
