Health Information Exchange
The appropriate sharing of patient care information from different parts of the health service enables organisations to develop a holistic view of the health and social care environment. The effective exchange of information provides organisations and decision makers with a greater understanding of the wider health needs of the country. This enables healthcare services to be planned more effectively and supports the identification of means of preventing, treating and managing illnesses and chronic conditions.
