NC HIEA & AHEC Resources

The N.C. Health Information Exchange Authority (NC HIEA) and the N.C. Area Health Education Centers (NC AHEC) kicked off a formal partnership in late 2019 to serve health care providers participating in the state-designated health information exchange, NC HealthConnex. 

In addition to in-person and virtual trainings that can be scheduled with any of the nine AHEC regions, NC HIEA and NC AHEC are collaborating to build out a training library of go-at-your-own-pace video modules that will provide NC HealthConnex participants with valuable training and use cases to support adoption and utilization of the state-designated HIE.

We’re pleased to announce the first in a series of these video training modules. Subsequent video modules NC HealthConnex participants will be able to access on this page include:

  • Unpacking the NC HealthConnex Welcome Packet
  • NC HealthConnex: PAA Roles & Responsibilities
  • NC HealthConnex Clinical Portal Overview
  • NC HealthConnex Patient Education 
  • NC HealthConnex: Suite of Services to Support Improved Patient Care
  • How Does NC HealthConnex Support Meaningful Use & Promoting Interoperability?
