eHealth Initiative Survey Links Health IT to Lower Costs and Improved Outcomes
Date:9/11/2008

ificant challenge for all 130 efforts reporting continues to be the development of a sustainable business model, with 50% of respondents citing this as a very difficult challenge, followed by securing upfront funding, with 47% citing this as a very difficult challenge. Both challenges are related to the current reimbursement system in health care which provides disincentives for the sharing of health information to support improvements in care.

"Clearly, securing upfront funding and achieving a sustainable business model are among the most difficult challenges that state and local initiatives focused on health information exchange are facing," said Rachel Block, Executive Director of the New York eHealth Collaborative and President of the eHealth Initiative Foundation. "The good news is that we are now making progress -- efforts across the U.S. are now able to demonstrate value through collaboration among and sharing of the costs of the exchange across all participating health care stakeholders, which ultimately provides benefits to everyone -- particularly patients."

The report is available on the eHI Website at http://www.ehealthinitiative.org.
