TIHA Connections

Our health information exchange (HIE) gives care teams access to patients health care information from disparate sources – this allows care teams to know our patients and provide better care. Over the past year, we have enhance the value of health information exchange for the Tiger Institute Health Alliance (TIHA).

In addition to sharing information among the Health Alliance membership, which consists of 16 hospitals, 140+ clinics, 2 skilled nursing facilities, and 750+ employed providers, TIHA has begun collaboration with other HIEs throughout the Midwest.

In early 2014, TIHA began sharing information with the Lewis and Clark Information Exchange (LACIE), an HIE that serves the greater Kansas City metropolitan region. This connection was one of the first HIE to HIE connections in the country. Since February, we’ve had 2,800 searches run between the two HIEs.
