Objective 7: Health Information Exchange (HIE)

The HIE objective states that the EP provides a summary of care record when transitioning or referring their patient to another setting of care, receives or retrieves a summary of care record upon the receipt of a transition or referral or upon the first patient encounter with a new patient, and incorporates summary of care information from other providers into their EHR using the functions of CEHRT.

You must meet 2 out of the 3 measures for the HIE objective. You can meet some of these measures through exclusions. This table provides information on how many measures must be met and can be excluded. It does not matter which 2 of the three are met or excluded.
