For Behavioral Health Providers

Health Information Exchange (HIE) helps all types of healthcare providers better coordinate care for individuals by facilitating safe and secure transmission of critical health information — making information available when and where it's needed for medical care. It helps you better understand the whole health of an individual so you can provide the safest and best treatment recommendations.

HIE not only improves care coordination, but it also reduces the hassles you face when you need to share information with another healthcare provider. HIE helps decrease the number of phone calls and faxes between other providers and protects the information in a secure, HIPAA-compliant way.

Fill In Information Gaps From Hospitals and Labs

When you participate in the CORHIO HIE network, you can quickly access real-time information to improve patient intake and care coordination within your organization and with other providers. The system saves your staff valuable time by providing the latest clinical results from hospitals and labs, so you no longer have to track down this information The HIE includes data on laboratory and pathology results, radiology and consult reports, orders, patient care summaries, transcription notes, ADT information, face sheets, and more.

CORHIO Health Information Exchange Offers:

  • Streamlined access to patients’ medical history and lab results, saving valuable time searching through paper charts and faxes or making phone calls
  • Decreased costs as a result of reduced faxing, printing, mailing paper files, and other administrative tasks
