Health Information Exchange
The Denver Hospice participates in the CORHIO electronic Health Information Exchange (HIE). The HIE gives qualified medical professionals access to accurate, up-to-date patient information, and help them provide better quality care. HIPAA-covered providers and staff who are caring for you can access your data; this is a very secure, controlled and private network. The HIE also enables emergency medical personnel and other providers who are treating you to have immediate access to your important health records, including allergies, medications and medical conditions. This information helps doctors and other health care professionals provide better care.
You can choose to opt out and not to make your health information available. By making this choice, your health information will not be accessible to providers who use CORHIO’s health information exchange. To learn more, visit www.CORHIO.org/for-patients.
