How Does the GNOHIE Work?
The GNOHIE keeps your care team informed about the care you receive at other facilities. Since patients usually receive care from more than one place, the GNOHIE helps providers coordinate with one another so they can deliver the best care possible.
Organizations must be a participating organization in the GNOHIE in order to share or receive patient information. To view a list of GNOHIE participants:
How is My Data Kept Safe?
Keeping patient data safe is our #1 priority. The GNOHIE ensures that only members of your care team can access your information. Patient data is kept private and secure through a combination of robust policies and procedures and advanced technology.
The GNOHIE operates in full compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other state and federal privacy laws. Security measures and consistent monitoring are employed to protect patient information and put individuals in control of their information sharing.
