What is Health Information Exchange?

Health information exchange (HIE) is the secure, electronic process of sharing patients' health information with physicians and other health care providers to improve quality of care and practice efficiencies.

All data is shared safely and securely, meeting or exceeding HIPAA standards. Download a PDF overview of HIE here.

CORHIO Health Information Exchange Offers:

  • Cost-efficient data exchange with hospitals, labs, physicians, and other care providers
  • Streamlined access to patients’ medical history, saving valuable time searching through paper charts and faxes or making phone calls
  • Decreased costs from faxing, printing, mailing paper files, and other administrative tasks
  • Secure, HIPAA-compliant information sharing with other care providers
  • Streamlined Oasis reporting
  • More efficient workflow for discharge planners, helping them focus on more complex cases
  • Reduced costs and physical risks to patients by avoiding unnecessary duplicate tests

Committed to the Unique Needs of Long-Term and Post-Acute Care Providers

In long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC), providers are faced with enormous challenges associated with coordinating care for patients transitioning to and from multiple and diverse care settings. These challenges with care coordination can be resolved by enhancing communications between the different care providers on their shared patients. CORHIO is working with LTPAC organizations, hospitals, physicians and other health care providers at a community-level to improve care coordination through HIE.

Note: The LTPAC Care Transitions Challenge Grant program is no longer accepting applications. The program has been a huge success, with facilities in six communities (Boulder, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, San Luis Valley, Cañon City and Metro Denver) participating. We are currently analyzing the program in preparation for the research study grant evaluation. As part of their obligations to the program, participating organizations shared their experiences using health information exchange to improve care transitions and reduce hospital readmissions via surveys, community advisory groups, care transitions projects and assessments. Even though the LTPAC Care Transitions Challenge Grant program is closed to new participants, if you're interested in participating in CORHIO's Health Information Exchange outside of the grant program, please contact Pamela Russell, Outreach Manager, at prussell@corhio.org or 720-285-3257 for more information.
