NC HealthConnex Update

NC HealthConnex, the state’s Health Information Exchange Authority (NC HIEA), is partnering with Mission Health System, located in the western region of North Carolina, and Coastal Connect, located in the southeastern region to enable health care providers meet the state’s mandate while also promoting greater access to patients’ health records to improve patient care.

NC HealthConnex is committed to securely linking all health care providers across the state to help break down the silos that can exist between disparate systems and technologies. The connection of Mission Health System and Coastal Connect means clinical data generated by the participants will be available in near real time to every other organization in the NC HealthConnex Network.

NC HealthConnex also welcomes Cape Fear Valley Health System, NC Specialty Hospital, Frye Regional Medical Center, FirstHealth of the Carolinas as well as numerous ambulatory and specialty provider participants. See the complete list of NC HealthConnex participants.

At its September meeting, the NC HIEA welcomed Dave Garrett, CIO and Senior Vice President of Novant Health, and Joe Norris, Vice President and CIO of New Hanover Regional Medical Center to its Advisory Board, the 11-member legislatively-appointed board. The Advisory Board’s quarterly meetings are open to the public. The next meeting will be held Dec. 6 from 1 to 5 pm. Watch for the details on the NC HealthConnex website.
