There are some noteworthy success stories to tell in the development of electronic health records and electronic health information exchange (HIE) across Texas. To highlight some of these stories, HIETexas has added a new section featuring case studies to its website.
New case studies will periodically be added to the list and highlighted in each edition of this HIETexas Connection Newsletter. Our inaugural case study features Greater Houston Healthconnect and the impact of HIE on coordinated care and positive patient outcomes. It is an excellent example of how one physician had a remarkable impact on one patient utilizing HIE. View the case study here.
Each profile will include the challenge faced, approach to meet the challenge and the positive results of the project. All Texas HIEs are encouraged to share their own success stories through a simple template provided by THSA so the spotlight can shine on their achievements. Be on the lookout in our next newsletter for the success story on a diabetes registry.
