How Do I Participate?
We provide several services that facilitate the exchange of patient health information.
ConnectVirginia EXCHANGE is service for health systems or hospitals with EHRs that can produce and transmit or receive a Continuity of Care Document (CCD or C-CDA) and have the technology necessary to enable bidirectional exchange utilizing the eHealth Exchange standards and specifications. This service will enable organizations that want to exchange these documents with other organizations outside of their local HIE to do so by onboarding to eHealth Exchange, a national health information exchange consisting of federal agencies and non-federal organizations that share patient health information using a common set of standards and specifications. For more information on eHealth Exchange, including a list of current participants, visit www.sequoiaproject.org.
Our Public Health Reporting service provides transport for public health data (immunizations, syndromic surveillance and electronic lab reporting) from hospitals and ambulatory providers to the Virginia Department of Health.
Our Emergency Department Care Coordination Program service delivers real-time encounter information to providers within their existing workflow. Providers can be alerted when their patients have been admitted, discharged, or transferred from an Emergency Department (ED) or inpatient setting. Participating providers include all Virginia hospitals operating an ED, most health plans in Virginia, and other providers in Virginia and other states.
