What is it?

Patient mediated health information exchange

Very simply, a health information exchange allows doctors, nurses, pharmacists, healthcare providers, trusted parties and patients to appropriately access and securely share a patient's vital medical information electronically. It increases the speed of data transfers, improves data quality and vastly increases the privacy and security of patient information.

Patient mediated?

There are different types of health information exchanges. Patient mediated means that the patient is in control of their own personal information.

They gain control of their health information online with the ability to share parts or all of that record with healthcare providers or trusted third parties. At any time, the patient can change, update or remove access to their health information.

Who benefits?

The patient and overall healthcare system benefit dramatically. Patients can better become active participants in their own care while reducing the strain on the healthcare system due to data loss, data fragmentation and privacy barriers.

Is this solely for healthcare providers?

No, the patient can share parts or all of their health information with any third party they deem trustworthy to further the patients interests.
