LAS VEGAS – HealtHIE Nevada, our only statewide health information exchange (HIE) provides real-time access to patient medical records safely and securely to doctors.
To save lives and reduce the spread of COVID-19, HealtHIE Nevada is now offering no-cost access to our HealtHIE Chart provider portal which contains comprehensive medical records on nearly every Nevadan. The HIE collects medical records from acute care hospitals, emergency departments, urgent care sites, skilled nursing facilities, doctor offices, laboratories, imaging centers, and other healthcare organizations across the state. HealtHIE Nevada’s connections to the State Public Health Lab, Southern Nevada Health District, Washoe County Health District, private labs, and the majority of diagnostic services provides COVID-19 and other test results.
In the case of COVID-19, the number of seriously ill patients the healthcare system can handle at the same time is determined by the efficiency of the healthcare system. Healthcare providers need rapid, reliable access to patient information. Failure to quickly find relevant patient information can lead to dangerous delays, costly rework, errors, and wasteful inefficiencies that a COVID-19 stressed healthcare system can ill afford.
“HealtHIE Nevada is designed for precisely this type of public health challenge. We implore the healthcare community to allow us to assist you and overcome this challenge together,” said Michael Gagnon, HealtHIE Nevada executive director.
