Summary of "The experience and challenges of healthcare-reform-driven medical consortia and Regional Health Information Technologies in China: A longitudinal study."

To achieve universal access to medical resources-a partial goal of the second ambitious health reform since 2010-the Chinese government aimed to build a regional medical consortium and enhance the efficiency of health information exchange (HIE). We analyzed the experience of constructing a medical consortium in Chinese hospitals, which was based on regional health information technology (RHIT) promoted by HIE.
