The effective adoption and use of health information technology can provide significant support for broader efforts to reform health care in the United States, plus reduce health care costs and medical errors. Brookings experts explore the benefits of health IT and, in particular, how it can improve the quality of health care, and make the system more cost-effective in the long term.

January 30, 2015, Niam Yaraghi
In his latest paper, Niam Yaraghi challenges the idea that interoperability issues have kept doctors and medical providers from embracing HIE. Rather, he argues it’s economic disincentives that are at fault, resulting in medical providers being less inclined to engage in HIE even as interoperability issues are resolved.
