Children’s Hospital Colorado, in the US, has joined the Colorado Regional Health Information Organization (CORHIO) to expand its health information exchange (HIE) network.

The connection of the hospital’s electronic health record (EHR) system with CORHIO HIE will allow its paediatric patients to receive better coordinated care after hospital visits and medical tests.

CORHIO board chair, Children’s Hospital Colorado president and CEO Jim Shmerling said: "We’ve joined CORHIO to broaden the HIE networks we already have in place and to ensure the medical treatment we provide is immediate and safer for our patients from all corners of the state."

"The network will also further upgrade information, such as patient medication lists, allergies and immunisations."

The CORHIO HIE can connect to any ONC-certified EHR product other than medical offices that do not use an EHR system.

CORHIO HIE will allow Children’s Hospital Colorado workers to share fundamental patient information with community-based providers across the region.

The HIE enables access to patients’ important health information, such as hospital discharge notifications, lab test results, x-ray, MRI and other imaging reports, physician transcription reports and referral information.

CORHIO chief executive officer Larry Wolk said: "The information that Children’s [Hospital] Colorado is providing through the HIE is critical for practitioners caring for children and will undoubtedly help improve the health of our children."
