Local office-based and emergency physicians talk about their experiences using health information exchange.



Colorado’s health care community has pulled together to make our state a leader in health information exchange (HIE). Our health systems, hospitals, laboratories, physician groups, solo practitioners, emergency services, and payers are adopting HIE technology in record numbers to share vital patient information and improve care. A new video from CORHIO highlights the improvements happening right now as a result of secure sharing of patient information among community providers.

Video Features Physicians and Patients
CORHIO’s new video features providers from the Front Range who are using the health information exchange to change the way they care for patients. They use the CORHIO system to gather clinical details on patients before an office visit, before reordering tests or before taking over a patient’s care from another provider or hospital. The video includes interviews with an emergency department physician at Lutheran Medical Center, two physicians at Boulder Medical Center, a solo family practitioner, and the mother of a pediatric patient.

Participating Providers
There are currently 38 hospitals, more than 2,000 providers, and over 5,200 clinical users connected to the CORHIO HIE network. View a list of participating providers.
