See whatDoug Hock,COO, CHOPsays about HSX
Working with other leading regional healthcare providers, we look forward to the many improved patient outcomes that will result from this significant exchange of clinical care information.
Doctors, hospitals, and insurers must work together to improve healthcare quality, lower costs, and improve satisfaction. One way that will happen for our region is by creating a superior health information exchange, such as HealthShare Exchange. Comprehensive patient care information will help doctors make more-informed decisions.
Rich Snyder, MD
I am a strong proponent of data-driven decision making. Data provided through HealthShare Exchange will help providers make the best decisions for their patients, based on information from other participating providers. This is a win-win for patients and the healthcare providers caring for them.
CEO, Abington - Lansdale
It’s about knowing, rather than not knowing. We are, after all, one healthcare system — and, as such, we should be able to transfer data automatically, easily, efficiently. By accomplishing this, HealthShare Exchange will allow us to better know the status of our members, as we permit provider hospitals, in turn, to know and collaborate with each member’s full care team.
Andrea Gelzer, MD
CMO, Amerihealth Caritas
Providing quality healthcare in today’s world requires the ability to access and share data and information quickly and efficiently. Through the leadership of HealthShare Exchange and the outstanding collaboration of Philadelphia-area health systems, we are working to achieve this goal. The result will be better care for the communities we all serve.
With the CCD, we had confirmation on hand of the information she shared with us about the event and hospitalization. This freed us from having to rely solely on the patient’s description of her problem and care during this visit.
