Columbia, S.C.-based Palmetto Health has leveraged Cerner's health information exchange solution to connect to the Georgia Regional Academic Community Health Information Exchange.

As part of the HIE, Palmetto Health is connected to a platform exchanging more than 2.2 million patient records in South Carolina and Georgia.

"Improving the flow of health information will enable deeper insights into the patients we serve, which can help transform healthcare delivery and outcomes," said Tripp Jennings, MD, system vice president of medical informatics at Palmetto Health. "Our goal is always to use technology to provide the best healthcare. This is another opportunity for us to do that."
