To accomplish clinical integration, a Health Information Exchange (HIE) is needed and has been defined. The Southeast Coalition on Health (SECOH) is the entity building and housing the HIE for the northwest Georgia and southeast Tennessee area. It will manage and own the HIE.
Lightbeam and Tangible Solutions were selected to build out the platform and administer the HIE called Clinical Integration Connection. Working with community healthcare providers, they are establishing interoperability connections and clinical integration.
Clinical Integration Connection works across all electronic medical records platforms to ensure a patient’s health information is available to all treating healthcare providers regardless of the health plan.
Giving healthcare providers real time patient information at the point of care to provide comprehensive care to their patients.
