“Healthconnect’s robust protected HIE network of patient medical information will connect hospitals, physicians, laboratories and pharmacies,” said Jim Langabeer, Ph.D., president and CEO of Healthconnect. “Greater access leads to more affordable health care and increased patient satisfaction. Everyone in the connected community benefits from improved continuity of care and lower costs.”

Healthconnect received a $5.6 million federal grant last year from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission to build a secure patient information network among providers throughout the 20-county region. In addition to RPO, other major Houston-area providers already signed on to utilize Healthconnect’s services include Christus Health, Texas Children’s Hospital, UTMB Galveston and Legacy Community Health Services.

HIE participation is a key element of meaningful exchange. As part of the Affordable Care Act, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is providing incentives to hospitals and physicians to comply with meaningful exchange laws by 2014.
