Are you or your staff frustrated by spending too much time on the phone, or reading through faxes and paperwork, and not enough time with patients?
Provide better care and minimize the hassles of patient information management with CORHIO and health information exchange.
What is Health Information Exchange?
Health information exchange (HIE) is the ability to electronically exchange patients' clinical information including:
- Lab results
- Pathology results
- Radiology reports
- Patient care summaries (sometimes called CCDs or C-CDAs)
- Consult reports
- Hospital discharge summaries
- Meds, allergies, problem lists
…when it's needed for patient care.
Data exchanged through the HIE is shared safely and securely, meeting or exceeding HIPAA standards.

CORHIO HIE Benefits:
CORHIO Saves Time
With faster access to information, you will have patient information compiled from across systems when you need it. This means you and your staff will spend less time searching, faxing and calling other providers for information.
Many participating physician offices are discovering that with access to data through CORHIO, they are able to re-purpose one-half of an FTE, such as a medical assistant or referral coordinator, toward other office responsibilities.
CORHIO Reduces Cost
With automated and streamlined information exchange, your practice becomes more efficient reducing overhead costs. HIE also reduces "interface" costs, which are the connections between your EMR/EHR and other electronic Health IT systems. Furthermore, HIE reduces expenses for patients related to unnecessary medications, tests and hospitalizations.
CORHIO Improves Care
With accurate and standardized information, you will get results and reports from all participating hospitals and labs in a consistent format. This means less chance for error and fewer treatment delays for patients.
Access Medicare & Medicaid EHR Incentive Payments
Stage 2 of the Meaningful Use incentive programs, which allow health care qualified providers to receive payments for EHR adoption and usage, requires providers to exchange health information. Read more about this here.
