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.  

Health IT Makes Health Care Convenient:

  • Faster, more accurate prescriptions
  • Rapid information sharing
  • Reduced paperwork
  • Reduced unnecessary tests
  • Better follow-up, better follow-through
  • Secure access to information
