The DC HIE is a system of HIE entities that meet common privacy, security, business, and operational standards to support the secure electronic exchange of health information. HIE entities participating in the DC HIE must meet certain privacy, security, use, and access requirements. If you would like to learn more about the District’s Registered and Designated HIE Entities, visit The DC Health Information Exchange.
The District Registered HIE Entities are organizations that demonstrate that they meet or exceed core minimum privacy, security, and access requirements for health information exchange identified by DHCF and District stakeholders in the District's HIE Rule.
The District Designated HIE Entity is DHCF’s organizational partner that supports the ongoing maintenance and operation of the DC HIE infrastructure and services as outlined in the District’s HIE Rule. The District Designated HIE Entity is committed to support the development and maintenance of HIE services in order to facilitate the secure, electronic exchange of health information among the District Registered HIE entities and participating organizations in the District.
