BENEFITS OF PARTICIPATION
Better Informed Care
Knowledge is powerful medicine! Allowing your doctors to view your medical records electronically through the GNOHIE means:
- You don’t have to remember the details of every encounter.
- Doctors can see your previous laboratory tests, imaging studies, and procedure notes so they don’t have to order repeat diagnostics. This saves you both time and money.
- Your primary doctor will be informed when you go to the emergency room so that you can receive seamless follow-up care.
- When you’re in the hospital, authorized caregivers can view your health records and better coordinate your care.
Privacy & Security
Advanced technology with sophisticated security features ensure that only authorized healthcare professionals can access your medical record so you can be confident that your health information remains private and secure.
The GNOHIE operates in full compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). We monitor and record each access to your medical records.
