Health Information Exchange – CCO
The Patients Perspective
When it comes to your healthcare, … time matters. Shouldn’t your healthcare provider have a complete picture of your health and medical history before treating you?
Coordinated Care Oklahoma (CCO) gives participating healthcare providers secure access to real-time, aggregated, complete medical records.
We advocate for patients in the healthcare system by connecting doctors, labs and hospitals with your vital health information.
This enables providers to talk candidly with patients, and it helps you make well-informed decisions about your care.
CCO: Security & mindfulness of patient privacy.
WHAT IS A HEALTH INFORMATION EXCHANGE?
Coordinated Care Oklahoma is a Health Information Exchange (HIE).
A Health information exchange is the transmission of healthcare-related data among facilities, healthcare providers, medical organizations, and government agencies. HIE’s were established to bring high standards for interoperability, security and confidentiality into our healthcare system
HIE’s are an important part of the health information technology infrastructure. The purpose is to improve health care in the community through the process of sharing information. HIE’s may include large public or private hospitals; community health centers, ambulatory care centers, clinics, and non-hospital residential facilities such as rehabilitation centers and long-term care facilities.
HIEs are the building blocks of the National Health Information Network (NHIN). Built on the premise that patients must see multiple care givers to obtain optimal health care, and focused on the goal to provide up-to-date, secure, confidential, and accurate electronic patient records for each of these care givers / facilities — at every step of a patient’s health care journey.
