Clinical Data Exchange


Our hConnect service is a set of tools that deliver fully automated clinical data exchange – think smart EMR interfacing coupled with secure patient lookup to fit real-world business needs. Built on the Microsoft Azure for Health secure cloud network, hConnect delivers best-in-class compliance and reliability as an integrated service of our Communications Suite.

Let’s face it – clinical data exchange or health information exchange (HIE) can be a complicated and overwhelming concept that is difficult to implement. Most have high costs with limited value.


Where is my data going and have I lost data ownership?

HIE Networks has over a decade of delivering robust clinical data exchange. Our solution is a hosted federated “spine” architecture where data is NOT commingled – each connected data source has their own legal agreement and database. This design is reliable, safe, and fast. You maintain both ownership and control of your data. Once connections are made data is normalized, records are linked, and credentialed healthcare providers can access a unified patient summary record through a secure web portal and community patient lookup services. HIE Networks manages user access, credentialing, and all legal framework required to run the exchange.

Smart EMR interfacing coupled with secure patient lookup to fit real-world business needs

"We have been using HIE for well over 10 years at Digestive Disease Clinic now and have been very pleased with all aspects of their services. From the ease of use to the community-based access of records (which is undeniably invaluable in any practice) to the ability to send and receive records without the problem of failure that the old fashioned faxing method sometimes brings. And if support is needed they are always fast to respond as well as knowledgeable and solves any issues we may have in no time. They are constantly searching for and achieving ways to make the workflow more efficient not only for our office but between other practices and facilities. I highly recommend the company and look forward to future innovations!"
