Greater Houston HEALTHCONNECT

 


As the only funded and approved Texas Health and Human Services HIE in the region, Greater Houston HEALTHCONNECT has built a secure digital network of linked health records between all providers to improve the region’s quality and efficiency of patient care. HealthConnect aims to make your patient records available to the treating physician, in real-time, with lower costs and less duplication of services- all based on patient directives and consent.

 

Many of the leading health systems and physician practices have already signed agreements, including CHRISTUS Health, Texas Children’s Hospital, the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, Kelsey-Seybold, MD Anderson Cancer Center, and Legacy Community Health Services. These pioneering institutions are among the first groups GHH will connect together for improving coordination of care. The network will connect nearly 7 million patients and will have its biggest impact in the emergency room. In an emergency, when minutes save lives, patients with little medical history are quickly identified and treatment begins immediately. HealthConnect will have its first patient records exchanged in Spring 2013.


HealthConnect's success is dependent upon continued adoption by all clinics and hospitals.  To that end, HealthConnect's leadership and staff would be happy to hear any ideas from HCHA member institutions about participation or improving the services they offer.
