RTI International. (2012). ONC State Health Policy Consortium Project: Health Information Exchange in Disaster Preparedness and Response.
The authors conducted a literature scan and conducted legal and technical workshops to determine the requirements necessary to enable interstate exchange of clinical data using Health Information Exchanges (HIE) following a disaster. The report suggests that the best way to ensure that health information can be easily accessed during a disaster is to ensure that this can happen every day and during more common emergencies and describes a multi-state existing system and policy and operational issues.
