3:10 PM CASE STUDY: Health Information exchange (HIe) - Tackling the Complexity in HIe to Improve and Maintain Continuity of Care

The exchange of a patient’s health information between health professionals is critical to ensuring patient safety, maintaining continuity of care, minimising treatment delays, and reducing patient harm. Epworth HealthCare’s Geelong campus seeks to reduce fragmentation by proactively sending clinical correspondence to GPs and specialists, and in certain cases the local public hospital.

This case study reviews the health information exchange project at Epworth Geelong that provides the capability for patient’s medical records to be seamlessly provided to primary and secondary care providers:

  • Who, what and how is health information exchanged
  • What challenges were faced to create and collate this information
  • What business processes and technologies were developed to support document creation and timely distribution
  • What lessons can be learned
  • Why are the next steps for HIe at Epworth HealthCare
