What it Means to You - Opt In or Opt Out?

Health Information Exchange, HIE, allows secure, electronic sharing of a patient’s medical information among health care providers. It enables your doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other providers to share your medical history, lab or imaging results, or prescription information.

As a patient, here’s how HIE benefits you:

  • Improves Communication
    When providers know your full medical history, you can have more open, informed conversations with them.
  • Enhances Safety
    A provider who has your complete medical history can create a more personalized plan of care for you. Having your records also reduces the possibility of medical errors.
  • Saves Time
    Your appointment time is valuable! Immediate access to your health information means providers aren’t spending your visit searching for your records. They’re spending more informed, quality time with you.
  • Elevates Overall Quality of Care
    HIE is an important resource for those you entrust with your health. With secure, efficient access to your health care records, providers can make faster, smarter, safer decisions about your care wherever you are: doctor or specialist’s office, urgent care, hospital or pharmacy.

You may at anytime opt-out of having your information available on the health information exchange, SMH XChange, by calling (941) 917-6622.

The Health Information Exchange program is modernizing how patient health information is shared across the nation.
