Abstract

Health information exchange holds the promise of sharing critical information about patients across organizations. We have found that emergency nurses have little or no involvement in using health information exchange and, often, they are not granted access by individual hospital policies. Yet, emergency nurses need to know this information and must have full access to health information exchange. We provide recommendations to ensure that emergency nurses are able to reach their full potential in using health information exchange to care for patients.
