What We Do

Connected Care Exchange is on a mission to improve the quality, efficiency, and coordination of healthcare by providing healthcare providers with access to a patient’s complete medical history and other resources that streamline collaboration across healthcare facilities and providers.

Eliminate Gaps in Care

CareShare reduces the physician burden to share or access crucial health data and puts critical information in the hands of providers. That makes it easier for providers to offer informed, accurate, and effective healthcare that improves outcomes for their patients.

Improve Care Collaboration

By putting all patient health data in one central location, CareShare makes it easy for organizations across the state, or the country, to access a complete patient record. By easing communication between organizations and providers, CareShare improves collaboration and the patient experience. Providers can also easily share updated patient data with hospitals, laboratories, pharmacies and other physicians.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are answers to common questions to provide you with more information about
our services and how they can support you in your practice.

  • How do I participate in CCE?

    You automatically become a member of CCE HIE when you visit a participating doctor or hospital.

  • What is Health Information Exchange?

    Health information exchange (HIE) is defined as the electronic movement of health-related information among health care organizations according to nationally recognized standards and conducted in a manner that protects the confidentiality, privacy, and security of the information. HIE may also refer to the electronic infrastructure that enables health care providers to access and share a patient’s medical information electronically to enhance coordination of patient care among providers, improve the quality and efficiency of care that a patient receives, improve patient safety, reduce medical errors and duplicate services. HIE is also useful in enhancing public health and disease detection and monitoring.

  • How much does it cost?

    There is no cost to the patient.

  • Why are HIEs valuable?

    An HIE allows two or more health care providers involved in providing care to a patient to quickly, securely, and accurately share information. Because each authorized provider can readily see a patient’s complete electronic health record (EHR), the need for duplicate medical tests is reduced, efficiency is improved, and patients receive higher quality care.
