Information Handling Practice

eHealth Exchange is a network that enables exchange of healthcare information among its Participants.  More specifically, eHealth Exchange is not a repository of healthcare data but, instead, is simply a secure conduit for exchange among Participants.

On behalf of and as authorized by our Participants pursuant to the provisions of the Data Use Reciprocal Support Agreement, eHealth Exchange receives patient information from eHealth Exchange Participants. The information includes information in the Participant’s electronic medical record for specific individuals who are the subject of an eHealth Exchange transaction. eHealth Exchange participates in the Carequality initiative, which allows Carequality Implementers to exchange electronic health records. eHealth Exchange may participate in other networks or initiatives in the future. Additionally, eHealth Exchange may de-identify and use the information its Participants provide for its business and administrative purposes related to the operation of eHealth Exchange but does not aggregate information that is individually identifiable.
