HIE allows Catholic Charities of Cortland to plan for better coordination of care

CC Cortland LOGO

"The RHIO, available through HealtheConnections, has provided our Care Managers with instant access to up-to-date medical records that they would have previously received days later.  This has helped us provide better coordination of care.


HealtheConnections gives our Care Managers the opportunity to access treatment information, allowing them to help plan for better coordination of care.


HealtheConnections has provided our Care Managers with a resource that allows us to meet the needs of individuals being served, but eliminating the stress and time traditionally associated with getting medical records from various providers.


The resource of the RHIO made available to our Care Managers by HealtheConnections has helped our program better meet the needs of those we serve.


One example from our Care Management team: 'We were providing services to an individual who returned from the ER Department.  Accessing the RHIO allowed our staff to receive accurate information on the treatment he received, which was different than what he communicated to our staff.'"
