Health Information Exchange makes patient care more informed. It also reduces unnecessary care and readmissions.
HSX is a membership-dues-supported organization that makes electronic patient-care information available securely throughout the area’s medical system, linking data across hospital systems and healthcare insurers and other healthcare organizations as a service to HSX members and participants. The HSX platform allows medical centers, insurers, and practice offices to share clinical records to make patient care more informed — by providing patient histories and event notifications throughout the system. Such exchange is part of the health information future for providers, payers, and consumers seeking better, more cost-effective care. It promotes continuity of care, reduces the need to transmit or transport medical information by patients or by fax, and helps to reduce duplicate services.
