Patient Impact Story
Improving Patient Safety and Experience Through HIE
Often used but rarely celebrated, health information exchanges (HIEs) play a key role in patient care by allowing seamless access to patient data across the entire care continuum. Not only does this improve diagnoses and avoid medication errors, an HIE can also help significantly speed up the time it takes to access information.
