The audience for this report is broad and varied, including federal and state officials, PAC and LTC providers, standards development organizations (SDOs), and potentially payors, vendors and other stakeholders interested in HIT. As such, the report is written with the expectation that the reader may have little knowledge of the current state of HIT development and the corresponding policies put forth and planned. Section II explains the methods used to select and recruit the participating sites for the case studies. Section III presents our findings and results, separated into major areas focusing on clinical and organizational/management of HIE and technical issues. The purpose of this division is to make it easier for readers to separate out these related, but different observations and findings from the site visits. Section IV presents our interpretation of the findings, as well as a discussion of possible next steps.
