MEDITECH: Union Hospital Improves Care Efficiency with Multiple Health Information Exchange (HIE) Strategy (Case Study)

Leveraging the state health information exchanges, Union Hospital is improving care delivery by giving clinicians easy access to information and events occurring across a variety of care settings and locations. Embedding access to clinical summaries, clinical health portals, and alerts allows physicians to have a more efficient workflow, thereby enhancing both the physician and patient experiences. With one hour less of daily paperwork to do, physicians can spend more time with their patients, making sure they understand their conditions and the steps they need to take to maintain or improve their health.
