The Florida Health Information Exchange (Florida HIE) enables the secure exchange of health information. It allows authorized medical providers to quickly and efficiently review their patients’ medical records to facilitate diagnosis and treatment. The Agency for Health Care Administration has contracted with Harris Corporation to build and operate the HIE infrastructure.
The system provides the capability to electronically move clinical information between health care information systems with the goal of facilitating access to and retrieval of clinical data to provide timelier, safer, efficient, effective, patient-centered care.
The Florida HIE offers four services that allow for the secure exchange of patient health information in electronic format.
On the Florida HIE website, www.florida-hie.net, you can find the latest news and events relating to the Florida HIE initiative, and explore information on becoming a participant. The Florida HIE metrics dashboard at http://floridahie-eval.fiu.edu provides information on adoption and utilization of each of the HIE services as well as reports from the on-going Florida International University project evaluation.
