Health insurance exchanges are capable of reducing redundancies in medical imaging, which contributes significantly to care coordination and cost-efficiency gains for healthcare providers, research conducted in New York state indicates.

A study, recently published in the American Journal of Managed Care, focuses on the Rochester Regional Health Information Organization, a nonprofit HIE launched in 2006. The study found that dozens of healthcare providers shared medical imaging data through the Rochester HIE, reducing the odds of redundant medical imaging by 25%.
