Dignity Health joins California Integrated Data Exchange

Sacramento, Calif.-based Dignity Health will participate in California's statewide health information exchange called the California Integrated Data Exchange.

Cal INDEX currently hosts 9 million health records, which is approximately one-fourth of the state's population. Dignity Health will connect five hospitals to the HIE at first and then eventually include all 32 of its California facilities.

"Our participation in Cal INDEX will give clinicians access to more comprehensive historical patient information, enhancing our ability to deliver high-quality care in a cost-effective way," said Lloyd Dean, president and CEO of Dignity Health.
