Does mobile device interoperability replace the need for health information exchanges?
ASKED: December 4, 2012  4:09 PM

Answer Wiki:
No, Baski. Mobile devices add portability, provide the ability to communicate with patients via the device of their choosing, whether smartphone, telephone, computer. HIE is a Health Information Exchange. An HIE enables the secure exchange of medical information regarding patients via their entire care continuum, so every participating physician can access information at the point of care. This creates improved outcomes for patients as information is accessible from all points within the spectrum of care. BOTH keep patient safety utmost in mind, and BOTH are ways in which care is improved, and delivered across a variety of communication means, keeping PATIENT CARE a number one priority!
