Community Care health information exchange (CareHIE) allows patients, doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other health care providers to appropriately access and securely share a patient’s vital medical information electronically—improving the speed, quality, safety and cost of patient care.

HIE Benefits

Sharing updated, electronic patient information with other providers enables you to:
  • Access and confidentially share patients’ vital medical history, no matter where your patients are receiving care—specialists’ offices, labs or emergency rooms
  • Provide safer, more effective care tailored to your patients’ unique medical needs
Information Handling Practices

Community Care HIE is a member of Carequality, an initiative of the Sequoia Project. Carequality is a multi-stakeholder initiative that has brought together public and private sector players from across the healthcare ecosystem to meet the challenge of connecting disparate data sharing networks and platforms. The Carequality community uses a consensus-based process to develop and implement tools that enable seamless connectivity across all participating networks. The Carequality Interoperability Framework consists of legal terms, policy requirements, technical specifications, and governance processes that together make it possible for healthcare to replicate the success other industries have achieved in breaking down barriers between many networks, programs, and platforms.
