SC HIE/HIT Summit to be Held March 9-10

Site Launch

posted on Tuesday, March 06, 2012

Next week, healthcare providers from across the state will gather in Columbia for the 2012 South Carolina Health Information Exchange/Health Information Technology Summit. The event will take place March 9-10 at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center and is open to any healthcare provider or medical staff member in South Carolina.

South Carolina is ahead of the national curve in developing a statewide Health Information Exchange (HIE), known as SCHIEx (South Carolina Health Information Exchange). SCHIEx, which will be spotlighted during next week's summit, has been under development for several years and now is complete and ready for use.

The feature presentations for the event will be demonstrations of real-time, bi-directional connections to SCHIEx, conducted by widely-used and well-respected EHR vendors SuccessEHS and eClinicalWorks, in conjunction with Roper St. Francis Hospital and Little River Medical Center.  Other EHR vendors will also be present, and will discuss their timelines for implementation of interfaces with SCHIEx.

HIE is defined as the electronic movement of health-related information among facilities, health organizations, and government agencies according to nationally- recognized privacy standards. Through secure data exchange, relevant health care information can be made available whenever and wherever it is needed. Physicians can access data like lab tests, emergency room episodes, and pathology reports to increase efficiency.

 The summit is designed to give hospitals and medical practices the latest information on Health Information Exchange (HIE) in South Carolina and how Electronic Health Records (EHR) can be shared among providers. HIE is an integral component of the health information technology infrastructure under development in the US and is being shown to significantly improve patient care and safety while reducing costs.

 The summit is hosted by SC Primary Health Care Association, Health Sciences South Carolina's Center for Information Technology Implementation Assistance, SC Medical Association, SC Hospital Association, SC Office of Rural Health, and the Carolinas Center for Medical Excellence. Among the presenters at the event will be those from the South Carolina Department of Health & Human Services, the South Carolina Department of Health & Environmental Control, the VA and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
