Camden Coalition Health Information Exchange

Linking patient data across systems for improved care delivery

Launched in 2010, the Camden Coalition Health Information Exchange (HIE) is a collaborative data-sharing effort to improve care delivery in Camden. The Camden Coalition HIE is a web-based technology offering participating local and regional healthcare providers secure, real-time access to shared medical information.

For providers, having access to shared clinical information fosters improved care coordination and reduces unnecessary, costly duplication. For Camden Coalition staff, data from the HIE can identify individuals eligible for enrollment in the Coalition’s intervention programs.

Camden Coalition HIE participants include hospitals, primary care practices, laboratory and radiology groups, social service organizations, correctional facilities, and other licensed healthcare facilities and providers. In order to protect patient privacy, the Camden Coalition HIE is built and governed to ensure that only healthcare providers can access the personal health information of their patients.

The Camden Coalition is part the Strategic Health Information Exchange Collaborative (SHIEC), a national collaborative of HIEs across the United States. By providing enhanced access to all available and relevant patient data, SHIEC HIE members aim to improve the quality, coordination, and cost-effectiveness of health care provided in their communities. The Camden Coalition is committed to reducing barriers to care for both patients and providers.
