Better Informed Treatment
With RGV HIE, your healthcare providers can access an up-to-date record of your overall health. The information in the system includes allergies, prescription medications, test results, treatment history, and more. These details allow healthcare providers to deliver the highest quality care and make informed decisions about your treatment, even the case of an emergency.
Fewer Wasted Resources
Linking your key medical information from separate health care providers allows rapid access to critical information. Your health care providers already share patient health records through fax, phone, and mail. RGV HIE does this electronically, making it easier, faster, and more secure for your health care providers to share information while eliminating unnecessary and time-consuming paperwork.
