Serving the Community
San Diego Health Connect is the health information utility that uniﬁes the San Diego healthcare ecosystem. We securely connect providers, patients, private health information exchanges (HIEs) and others to improve the quality and cost of care in our community. As a non-proﬁt organization, we exist to serve every member of the community—and to make San Diego an even better place to live.
Health care cost and quality affects everyone in San Diego—consumers, employers, providers, the government and more. Community-wide health information exchange (HIE) through San Diego Health Connect is the foundation for improving this quality and cost.
With San Diego Health Connect’s Medical Records Exchange solution, providers get instant, secure access to patient summary health information for new, existing or referred patients.
When you request your patients’ health information electronically, you receive an up-to-date view of their health status. This enables you to improve the speed, quality, safety, coordination and cost of the health care you deliver.
How Our Medical Records Exchange Works
Simply query the Medical Records Exchange using your own electronic health record (EHR) or San Diego Health Connect’s easy-to-use, web-based portal. This gives you access to the following information about your patient from all organizations participating in the health information exchange (HIE):
- Summaries—Problem lists, medications, allergies, immunizations and recent test results
- Textual information—Progress notes, discharge summaries and operative reports
