For Providers

Health Information Exchange, or HIE, is the technology that supports the flow of health information between physician practices, hospitals, long term care facilities, labs, radiology centers, and other health care institutions. HIE allows delivery of the right health information to the right place at the right time, providing safer, more timely, efficient, patient-centered care. HIE Connects You to Other Health Care Providers in Your Community & Statewide

View a functional demonstration of health information exchange (HIE) and the community health record. The demo features a fictitious scenario involving a 77 year-old female patient who is switching primary care providers. Her new physician uses the community health record portal to access her medical history including recent tests, medications and more. (note: this demo does not show how HIE is used within an EHR system)

The Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs provide a financial incentive for the "meaningful use" of certified electronic health records (EHR) technology to achieve health and efficiency goals.

Meaningful Use in Colorado:

· Colorado primary care providers have already started receiving Medicare incentive payments (started in late May 2011)

· Eligible primary care providers can receive no-cost services from the CO-REC program to get help implementing an EHR and achieving 'meaningful use'
