MetroChicago Health Information Exchange


Health Information Exchange (HIE) is the mobilization of health care information shared electronically across organizations within a region or community between health providers who are giving care to an individual. People often visit different health care offices, physicians and other providers when getting help with a medical condition. With an HIE, a patient’s information is accessible wherever the patient seeks medical care.

By having accurate and up-to-date information readily available, authorized health care providers can make better decisions about their patient’s care and treatment. The MetroChicago Health Information Exchange (HIE) allows authorized care providers to securely exchange medical information to ensure that patients receive safer, quality health care faster.

The MetroChicago HIE is a service of the MCHC – Chicago Hospital Council.
