"As an intensive care unit doctor I often admit patients who are too sick to give you their medical history. And many times they are being transferred from another hospital and family are not yet here to provide information about their loved one. And even in the best of circumstances, patients or their families sometimes cannot recall the details of what are often very complex medical histories. In those situations the ability to access their medical history via health information exchange, as we have with HealtheConnection, is priceless. The medical history is probably the most valuable tool for accurate diagnosis. And the ability to access laboratory tests and images (x-rays etc) means we don't have to repeat all the testing that might have been done at another facility. The ability to see images done at other hospitals or clinics is particularly vital to a timely diagnosis without redundant testing."
