Novant Health Joins Federal HIE platform
Novant Health has become the first healthcare system in North Carolina to join the federal-level Health Information Exchange (HIE), eHealth Exchange, announces the Triad Business Journal.
Through the eHealth Exchange, providers will be able to use the data to quickly find and notify patients who may be at risk for problems related to unsafe drugs or recalled medical devices, identify epidemics nationwide, and allow researchers to analyze treatment and outcome data to identify best practices.
Additionally, information can be shared with providers across the country when a patient seeks care outside the Novant Health system.
Novant Health is a 2,265-bed health system affiliated with 16 hospitals, 14 of which are in North Carolina and 2 in Virginia.
