Coastal Connect Health Information Exchange Key Findings on Value for Providers to Participate

In 2009, Coastal Connect Health Information Exchange (CCHIE) was established through the collaborative efforts of member hospitals of the Coastal Carolinas Health Alliance (CCHA) to enable electronic exchange to improve quality, safety, and efficiency of healthcare for patients in their communities. CCHIE is a nonprofit regional health information organization dedicated to enabling the secure and reliable exchange of health information in Eastern North Carolina. Supported by a grant from The Duke Endowment, CCHIE engaged in a three-year project to connect Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC) providers, safety-net organizations, and identified specialists to a HIE network. By electronically sharing patient data, CCHIE intended to increase the efficiency of patient care and improve care coordination.
