Cross-enterprise Document Sharing What it’s used for: The sharing of documents between any health care enterprise, ranging from a private physician office to a clinic to an acute care in-patient facility, through a common registry. Medical documents can be stored, registered, found and accessed.

Example:

Hospital A has a document to store. Hospital A creates a description and metadata for the document and submits it to the HIE [1] Repository.
The HIE Repository accepts the document with metadata. It stores the document and forwards the metadata to the HIE Registry.
The HIE Registry receives a query from Hospital B and identifies the document as a match based on the metadata.
Hospital B retrieves the document from the HIE Repository.
