Date:9/11/2008

and five offering quality improvement reporting for purchasers or payers.

-- For the first time, a majority (69%) of the fully operational respondents (29/42), report a positive financial return on their investment (ROI) for their participating stakeholders, including health plans, hospitals, laboratories, and physician practices. In 2007, just ten (31%) reported a positive ROI.

"The 2008 survey shows a direct link between the exchange of health information electronically and improved efficiency, reduced costs, and better patient outcomes. These are exciting results and demonstrate that the significant potential impact predicted for electronic medical records is now being realized all across the nation," said Janet Marchibroda, chief executive officer, eHealth Initiative.

Additional findings in the current survey are as follows:

-- Forty-two health information exchange efforts are now in the advanced stage of development and fully operational -- a 31% increase over the 32 operational initiatives in 2007.

-- As in previous years, health information exchange initiatives are continuing to focus their efforts on supporting direct care delivery. 2008 survey results show that 26 of the 42 operational initiatives are offering clinical messaging, results delivery, or clinical documentation as one of their services. Sixteen are providing either alerts to providers, consultation/referral services or enrollment or eligibility checking.

-- The variety and volume of data being exchanged increased significantly from 2007 to 2008. In 2008, a total of 26 operational initiatives reported that they are exchanging laboratory results, up from 19 in 2007, and 23 are exchanging outpatient episodes, up from 21 in 2007. In addition the number of operational initiatives exchanging radiology results (23), inpatient episodes (22), dictation/transcription data (20) and emergency department episodes (20) all increased from 2007.
