Health Information Exchange (HIE) allows health care professionals to securely access and share a patient’s medical information electronically. For many U.S. healthcare providers, HIE still requires a complex series of handwritten signatures and faxed requests — which result in lengthy delays in important processes.
Modernization of HIE is top of mind for many. The secure, electronic sharing of patient information enables a more comprehensive, up-to-date patient record that improves care quality and patient outcomes. Regardless of where a patient is receiving care, their medical history can be pulled and referenced quickly for improved quality of service. With easy access to records of a patient’s unique medical history, providers can deliver safer and more effective care.
