    I am looking for feedback/advise on Health Information Exchanges (HIE).

    I work in Michigan which is an opt out state for HIE.  My organization would like to work with an HIE provider and feels no due diligence on their behalf needs to occur by (obtaining patient consent, updating Privacy Notice stating "sharing") they understand it to be covered under HIPAA via treatment, payment and operations.

    I think its is a direct breach to confidentiality considering the enrollee/patient did not provide their consent?

    Looking for other view points on this.
