Connecting the District’s Health Care Community Through HIE
DC has one of the most connected health care communities in the nation. Effective local care requires close coordination across providers that serve District residents. HIT helps DC-based providers coordinate care by providing access to patient information no matter where they seek care. HIE enables a District-wide health data infrastructure with tools for providers to easily view longitudinal patient information and participate in quality reporting.
