Press releases may be edited for formatting or style
July 11, 2017 -- Forcare has announced a partnership with the Strategic Health Information Exchange Collaborative (SHIEC), an organization that represents many of the largest, most established and dynamic health information exchanges (HIEs) in the United States.

"We believe that secure access of information shouldn't be limited geographically and HIEs are the leading force towards the access that is important to better healthcare in America."

According to HealthIT.gov, an electronic Health Information Exchange (HIE) allows healthcare providers appropriate and secure regional and state-level access. A large portion of the health records in the United States are still paper-based and sharing is cumbersome and slow through fax, mail, or through the patients. HIEs deliver an invaluable service for the healthcare community by helping individual providers overcome many of these issues without reinventing the wheel each time they want to connect to a new partner.

The Strategic Health Information Exchange Collaborative (SHIEC) is a national trade association for about 50 Health Information Exchange (HIE) organizations. In the United States, the vast majority of healthcare delivery is highly localized. However it is routine for important data about patients' ongoing care to reside in multiple unconnected organizations. SHIEC member HIEs use information technology and trusted relationships to enable secure, authorized exchange of patient information among disparate providers.

Forcare joined SHIEC in May of 2017 as a Strategic Business and Technology Partner. Forcare educates member organizations on best practices available for increased interoperability and value across the communities they serve. Forcare's suite of interoperability products aligns with the mission of HIEs to support a secure exchange of patient data across regions and states.
