Health Information Exchange (HIE)
The following information pertains to Health Information Exchanges and how to connect with them.
What is an HIE?
Health information exchange (HIE) is the mobilization of healthcare information electronically across organizations within a region, community or hospital system
Sharing updated, electronic patient information with other providers enables you to:
- Access and confidentially share patients’ vital medical history, no matter where your patients are receiving care—specialists’ offices, labs or emergency rooms
- Provide safer, more effective care tailored to your patients’ unique medical needs

If your office is submitting CCD data to a local HIE exchange, please make sure all conditions are mapped to an applicable LOINC code. To map your clinical codes, navigate to “ChartMaker Tools Code Mapper LOINC Mapping”. Select “Conditions without LOINC Codes”. This will provide a listing of all codes that need to be mapped. If you need further assistance, please contact our support department at 800-243-8682.
