NeHII is leading the effort to create a secure, online, web-based Health Information Exchange (HIE) designed to serve the state of Nebraska.  Improved delivery of health care information and reduced health care costs are good for all citizens of Nebraska. The state has a proud tradition and reputation of providing the finest health care possible to its citizens. The HIE will help health care providers take health care to the next level.

Over the next few years the HIE will be rolled out across the state and ultimately will become part of a planned Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN). This partnership will again improve the level of health care for Nebraska as well as for the Nation as a whole.

Best of all, these information exchanges will help improve the quality of health care and control the rapidly increasing cost of health care.

The mission, vision, and goals of NeHII provide the ideals and constructs for development of the HIE.
