HealtheConnection (HIE)

Northeast Georgia – Gainesville

Governance

HealtheConnection is a regional Health Information Exchange (HIE) covering the 19-county area in Northeast Georgia—as well as four adjacent counties in neighboring states. HealtheConnection was established in November 2012 to deliver real-time, relevant clinical data to clinicians at the point of care, eliminating organizational or geographic boundaries.

HealtheConnection provides secure electronic access to personal health information from participating hospitals and physicians' offices in Northeast Georgia. This includes: patient's medical history, medications, allergies, images, test results (lab, radiology, pathology, etc.), demographic data and continuity of care documents.

The system also features secure provider-to-provider and provider-to-patient messaging. And, HealtheConnection creates access to a community PACS image exchange for a patient-centric view of images. HealtheConnection maintains standards-based communication protocols to facilitate interaction between other HIEs, state and national exchanges—as well as security standards that meet or exceed HIPAA requirements.

HealtheConnection also offers a patient portal to view lab results, schedule an appointment, refill a prescription, send their physician's office a message—and much more.

HealtheConnection delivers improved efficiency, a better coordination of care, real-time consults and access to clinical information across multiple care providers.
