The eHealthConnecticut HIE provides a secure, interoperable, standards-based health information infrastructure to enable timely exchange of medical data between providers at the point of care resulting in improved patient outcomes, reduction in service duplication and medication errors, and decreasing the rate at which health care spending occurs. To protect patients’ privacy, healthcare information is only available if the patient authorizes its transmission. eHealthConnecticut provides a unified voice and coordinating resource for regional health information exchange efforts across Connecticut, while encouraging diversity and locally-based operations.
