A great place to start looking for information on Regional Health Information Organizations (RHIOs), also know as Health Information Exchanges (HIEs), is the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) website

The HIMSS Health Information Exchange Toolkit includes An Introduction to HIE Concepts, Case Studies, White Papers, and more.
