What is Health Information Exchange and why is it important?

Health Information Exchange (HIE), is a way of securely sharing your health information among approved doctors’ offices, hospitals, pharmacies, labs, radiology centers, and other health organizations. HIE allows delivery of the right health information to the right place at the right time, providing safer, more timely and efficient, patient-centered care. Through the HIE, doctors will have immediate access to important information. This will help with the collaboration and coordination of your care.
