Health Information Exchange (EMS)
What is Health Information Exchange?
US Department of Health and Human Services Definition: "Electronic Movement of health-related information among organizations according to nationally recognized standards."
Health information exchange (HIE) relies on a bi-directional flow of data covering all aspects of the patient care continuum beginning with a reported event (dispatch), patient receiving care, transport, hospital admission, hospital discharge, and practitioner care, and any prior care received (patient history).
The goal of HIE programs is to facilitate access to and retrieval of clinical data to provide safer, timelier, efficient, effective, equitable, patient-centered care.
