Despite the advancement of HIEs, there are no solutions to truly integrate the workflows at different providers. We are beginning to exchange information on the back end, but true integration such as shared medication lists between disparate systems, or operational solutions that for instance allow transfers centers to understand true bed availability across available providers with different systems, do not exist.
