HIMSSCast: Tracking the present and future state of HIEs

John Kansky, president and CEO of Indiana Health Information Exchange – and a board member at both Civitas Networks for Health and the Consortium for State and Regional Interoperability – is a longtime leader in the HIE space.

He spoke with HIMSSCast recently about IHIE and the Indiana Network for Patient Care. He also talked more generally about health information exchange – the noun, not the verb – and offered his perspective on state and regional exchanges: how they’ve evolved over the past decade-plus, how they’ve served provider members and their patients during the pandemic, and where they might be headed in the future.
