In today’s complex healthcare environment, secure information exchange is critical to all aspects of your practice – from patient care to practice operations to reimbursement and more. When considering HIE, you should first understand the types of data exchange that are of most value to you, who you would need to exchange data with to realize that value, and then assess which of the options available in Minnesota is the best fit for you.

VT

A health information exchange (HIE) is a secure computer network that connects the electronic health information systems of different health care providers, enabling those providers to share clinical and demographic data of patients they have in common. Because different health information systems use their own codes, they may not be able to communicate with each other directly. An HIE, like the one operated by VITL, makes it easier for those different systems to send and receive information. The Vermont Legislature has named VITL as the operator of the Vermont Health Information Exchange, the exclusive statewide HIE for Vermont.

SC

The health care market in South Carolina is much like it is elsewhere within the United States. Health care is delivered by numerous physicians, hospitals, public health facilities, pharmacies, laboratories, and imaging centers. South Carolina residents receive their care from a personally chosen set of the caregivers. Some are cared for exclusively by one caregiver, but most utilize a panel of caregivers and move from one to another over time. As is the case elsewhere in the United States, the clinical information about South Carolina residents rarely moves with them, between caregivers or across time, resulting in a lack of continuity of care and increased expenditures. Fortunately, expansion of Health Information Technology (HIT) is creating exciting changes in the health care market.
