Since passage of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act in 2009, both federal and state governments have made major investments in health information technology and exchange (HIT/HIE). Nearly a decade later, state policymakers still struggle to realize the potential promised by HIT/HIE. Have these investments been worth it? State leaders discuss how they have leveraged HITECH investments to promote health care reform, and what more they need to realize HIT/HIE’s promised potential.
