Headquartered in Tallahassee, HIE Networks is the leading provider of clinical HIE services in Florida. HIE Networks pioneered the technology, strategies and resources used by Big Bend Regional Healthcare Information Organization (BBRHIO) to become one of the most successful local, provider-driven HIEs in the nation.
HIE Networks provides proven strategies and technologies needed to deliver local, provider-controlled HIE. Specifically architected to connect disparate EMR systems for community-wide HIE, the HIE Networks technology supports the largest production community-wide exchanges and our MPIs contain over one million Florida lives. Our technology and expertise isn’t limited to Florida – we can provide HIE and integration services nationwide.
Company co-founders Allen Byington (a technology entrepreneur) and Dr. Dan Kaelin (a tech savvy vascular surgeon) provide over 20 years combined HIE experience. Their pioneering work began before starting Big Bend Health in 2005 and leveraged Big Bend Health to create, develop and document the technical, social and legal infrastructure necessary to deploy community-wide HIE from a local, provider-driven perspective.
The leadership of its founders, combined with the development of a talented team, has created a unique entity which has the most real-world HIE and data integration expertise of any HIE vendor nationwide. Many have designed HIE technology but few actually know how to effectively deploy it into the healthcare providers workflow. Our expertise and experience will get you to utility faster than any other solution.
