How Does HIE Help Me?
Every day, health care professionals have to make important health care decisions for patients, often without access to past or current medical information. And when information is shared, it is usually done via phone, mail and fax.
Better access to vital information about prior conditions, medications, allergies, and tests may improve the accuracy of diagnoses, enhance the quality of care, and eliminate duplicate tests. ConnectVirginia will allow health care professionals the ability to quickly share and view patient information electronically with other participating providers, called Health Information Exchange or “HIE”.Learn more about the benefits of Health IT and HIE.
