Health Information Exchanges (HIEs) are exploding across the world and here in the US private companies, States and even large counties are launching their own HIEs. Competition to provide the most information about patients to the largest number of providers has high stakes.

Companies and organizations looking to improve the customer experience with improved speed, security and reduced cost (as well as trying to become the biggest HIE on the block) will look to merge these existing HIEs. This inherently will cause massive confusion with the use of different patient information nomenclatures, categories and partner designations. Here we speak with Kristin Brown of Tamr to try to clarify some of the confusion.
