The Santa Cruz Health Information Exchange was established in 1996 and is one of the country’s longest running and most successful multi-stakeholder exchanges in the country. The clinical network connects a large IPA, two local hospitals, several County Health Clinics, County Detention, Mental Health, seven national and local reference labs, five imaging centers and several safety net clinics. More than 1.2 million web transactions occur each month on the HIE and more than 120,000 clinical documents consisting of lab results, electronic prescriptions, electronic refill requests, pre-treatment authorizations, orders, referrals, consult letters, H&P, radiology reports and transcribed documents are exchanged. SCHIE is a fully sustainable model leading the way for the future of HIEs with a proven track record of successes.
The exchange is open to any authorized healthcare stakeholder.
