National Networks

The medical community is wherever the patient needs care.

C3HIE participates in several national networks, including the eHealth Exchange and CareQuality. We do this because, while a regional HIE can have great coverage in a COMMUNITY, the healthcare COMMUNITY can easily expand— on a skiing trip, a vacation to the beach, traveling for work, or visiting grandchildren. By connecting to these national networks, C3HIE ensures that your healthcare information is CONNECTED and accessible wherever you go, maintaining seamless and comprehensive care.

Each of these national networks has different guidelines for participation. C3HIE is committed to following the guidelines of the networks in which we participate.
