Metropolitan Chicago Healthcare to Launch Largest Metro HIE

The Metropolitan Chicago Healthcare Council is planning to develop the MetroChicago Health Information Exchange, which is expected to be the largest metropolitan HIE in the nation, serving more than 9.4 million people, according to a news release.

The MetroChicago HIE will use technologies from Microsoft, CSC and HealthUnity to quickly aggregate and analyze data across patient cohorts and populations in order to drive quality care improvements and cost efficiencies for Chicago healthcare consumers.

By enabling the flow of data across healthcare organizations, the MetroChicago HIE expects positive outcomes due to more comprehensive views of patient information. These include decreased costs from fewer redundant tests across care settings, reduction in time spent gathering information about patients and greater efficiency in identifying patients requiring ongoing ambulatory care.
