The NC HIEA has earned the Validated Data Stream designation through the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Data Aggregator Validation program.

Three business units within the North Carolina Department of Information Technology (NCDIT) are working together to improve the connectivity of rural residents and health care providers in order to improve care delivery for the state’s residents.

The N.C. Health Information Exchange Authority and the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services have launched the N.C. Stroke Registry to improve the stroke care continuum in North Carolina.

The N.C. Department of Public Safety and the future N.C. Department of Adult Correction have joined NC HealthConnex, expanding access to the medical records of incarcerated persons to provide enhanced continuity of care.

Real-time event notifications through NC HealthConnex's NC*Notify service are especially important for community-based primary care providers, post-acute facilities, health insurers and value-based care organizations that employ care teams to provide critical follow-up after patients are admitted and discharged from the emergency department or inpatient stays in hospitals.

The Patient Centered Data Home is a secure health data exchange initiative that can help patients by proactively alerting their health care providers when they have a health event away from home, so their health records can be available wherever and whenever they need them. 

The NC AHEC Program provides and supports educational activities and services with a focus on primary care in rural and under-resourced communities to recruit, train and retain the workforce needed to create a healthy North Carolina.

The N.C. Health Information Exchange Authority received the 2019 Strategic Health Information Exchange Collaborative Community Partnership Achievement Award on Aug. 20 at the fifth Annual SHIEC Conference in National Harbor, Md.

In the event the storm forces patients to seek health care outside of their communities, North Carolina's statewide health information exchange NC HealthConnex has enabled connectivity to neighboring state and regional HIEs to support access to patient records.

The partnership allows a more complete picture of veterans’ health, providing immunization records, lab results, medications,and procedure results and will reduce the need for patients and their families to request paper records.
