Australian health and care professionals are often time poor and subject to cognitive overload. Gathering the right patient information in time to make the right treatment decision can be a challenge, especially when it involves access into multiple health systems, various clinical documents, phone calls and faxes. This is where a Health Information Exchange (HIE) comes in. 

What is an HIE and why do you need it?

In today’s health system arena, health professionals are faced with a constant influx of data. Whether it is the latest medical information, recent outbreaks, new treatments, vaccine development and the need for increasing levels of patient tracking and documentation. Healthcare professionals are overwhelmed with not only volumes, but different types of data.

An HIE can make health data smart and meaningful, so it unburdens clinicians of time-consuming tasks and gives them more time with the patient.

An HIE is a platform that integrates an Australian’s health and care data from disparate systems across a geography into a single view. By pulling data from both traditional and non-traditional sources, clinicians and caregivers have a comprehensive view of their patient to make the best possible decisions at the point of care. An HIE is critical to enabling a more connected, safe and integrated care across the Australian public health network.
