The analysis is based on 2018 information.

3 report findings:.

1. Getting involved in an HIE and having an EHR from a dominant health IT developer situated within the city results in the greatest rates of interoperability at 79 percent.

2. Hospitals that take part in HIEs however do not have an EHR from the dominant health IT designer within a city are less most likely to take part in interoperability than health centers with a dominant health IT developer but without taking part in an HIE.

3. Of the medical facilities that neither took part in an HIE nor have a dominant health IT developer situated within the very same city, just 10 percent participated in interoperability.
