Care Partner Connections through HIE

12/11/17 | Connecting Missouri, Newsroom, Support the Continuum of Care

We continue to expand our membership in Tiger Institute Health Alliance (TIHA) health information exchange (HIE). Recent additions include members in Columbia, Ashland, and Marshall, Missouri.

Through the Sequoia Project national eHealth exchange platform, we connected to Missouri-based SSM Health System. SSM is also a member of MPact Health, a clinically integrated network, which spans four states. Currently we are among the first five HIEs working on a connection with the Veterans Administration through eHealth exchange.

 

 

Tiger Institute Health Alliance HIE helped MU Health Care become one of the first Cerner clients to connect to the CommonWell Health Alliance national health information exchange network.

The connection lays the foundation to obtain clinical information on patients directly from their providers throughout the United States and supplements the robust data already available in the TIHA HIE.   The HIE now boasts more than 737,000 unique patients and over the last year usage increased by 193%.
