Health Information Exchange
Electronic health information exchange (HIE) allows doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and other health care providers to have access to your vital medical information electronically through a computer system. This way, your doctors can get important medical information about you quickly. Instead of your medical information stored on paper in a filing cabinet at various doctor’s offices, the electronic sharing of information can greatly improve the completeness of your medical record information and help you get better care.
