The Value of Health Information Exchange

The benefits of  of Health Information Exchange are numerous and greatly outweigh the cost of implementation. With HIE, critical health information is readily available whenever and wherever it is needed. Watch this video to learn more about the benefits of  Health Information Exchange.

Congratulations to Genaro Garza  

We are pleased to announce that Genaro Garza is now Mirth Certified. Being Mirth Certified gives RGV HIE the capability and knowledge needed to connect clinics and health organizations to exchange health information using the Mirth Connect Integration Engine.

As the “data steward” for the community to share patient health information, we have put in place processes and oversight to ensure privacy and security to facilitate the secure exchange of protected health information. Although most hospitals and providers have electronic health record (EHR) systems, most are not able to share information electronically among different EHR vendors. The result by default is most providers still fax copies of health records to each other.

Our Integration engine service offers an affordable solution for clinics and health organizations to share patient health information to meet current legislation requirements such as Meaningful Use, PCMH and MACRA. Essentially, you connect your EHR to the HIE one time and we can direct your data to any destination required at a reasonable fee. Our technology will enable your organization to have the option to participate in our HIE, disease registry, or quality reporting tool.
