Health Information Exchange

A Health Information Exchange (HIE) is a convenient electronic system used by providers participating in the ACO and the medical community of our region to more efficiently and effectively assist you and your providers meet your medical needs. Shared access to your electronic medical records, including:

·       Medical History

·       Allergies

·       Medicines

·       Vaccines

·       Lab Tests

The HIE allows all providers on your health care team to better coordinate your care, reduce the need for duplication of tests and procedures, and address both your preventative and on-going medical needs with the goal of providing you comprehensive, quality care. Ultimately, the HIE provides the tools and information necessary for your providers to more effectively provide you quality of care, and to better coordinate you care with your health care team.

BVyS is assisting our ACO providers to connect to our local public Health Information Exchange: Rio Grande Valley Health Information Exchange (RGV HIE). For more information regarding RGVHIE, you may go to:  http://rgvhie.org/

The HIE protects the privacy and security of your medical information that is shared through the HIE. Whether or not you wish to be a part of the HIE is completely up to you.
