“We have found that being part of the health information exchange has allowed our staff to efficiently address patient care needs. Electronic access to health care information allows staff … to help the patients quickly by retrieving information that is key to patient care.”

hConnect provides a set of tools that deliver a fully automated clinical data exchange – think smart EMR interfacing coupled with secure patient lookup to fit real-world business needs.

hConnect is a hosted federated “spine” architecture in which data is not commingled – each connected data source has its own legal agreement and database. This design is reliable, safe, and fast. You maintain both ownership and control of your data. Once connections are made, data is normalized, records are linked, and credentialed health care providers can access a unified patient summary record through a secure web portal and community patient lookup services. Centralis Health manages user access, credentialing, and all legal framework required to run the exchange.

  • Built on the Microsoft Azure for Health secure cloud network
