The Healthcare Environment in the Philadelphia Region
Our 5-county region is home to over 30% of the state's population as well as a large and diverse collection of teaching hospitals, acute care facilities, emergency rooms, and other health care providers.
Among the many benefits of a health information exchange is improved outcomes for patients. The information sharing enabled by HealthShare Exchange will improve care delivery for everyone in the Southeastern Pennsylvania region.
What is a Health Information Exchange?
HIE's enable doctors, hospitals, clinics, and health insurance companies to share information securely, increasing care quality while decreasing costs. Find out about the technology and processes that enable this sharing of information.
“Welcome to the website of the HealthShare Exchange of Southeastern Pennsylvania, Inc. We're excited by the opportunities this new organization represents. Providers, health plans and other health care entities have come together to improve patient outcomes, enable better care coordination, and reduce healthcare costs in the five-county region.”
