ClinicalConnect is western Pennsylvania’s first Health Information Exchange (HIE). It was formed to help deliver better patient care throughout the region by creating a unique network of electronic medical records that securely connects clinicians with patients’ vital medical information whenever it’s needed.
This unique network securely connects these health systems and physicians like never before. Providers will now have quick access to a patient’s medical information, such as allergies, medications, lab results, past hospitalizations, and other vital information important to clinical decisions and patient care. ClinicalConnect reduces the time needed to access patient records and controls costs by reducing duplicative services.
ClinicalConnect will help deliver faster patient care, reduce unnecessary testing, and improve the management of care. By connecting health care providers with electronic medical data, care will be improved, and that’s a win-win for everyone in western Pennsylvania.
