Centura Joins Colorado's Health Information Exchange
CORHIO, the state health information exchange for Colorado, just got a lot bigger after 12 of Centura Health's 13 hospitals agreed to join the fledgling network.
The other hospital, Mercy Regional Medical Center in Durango, expects to join at a later date. Serving parts of the rural western part of the state, Mercy Regional has a different electronic health records system than the other hospitals and already participates with the Quality Health Network regional HIE that will link to CORHIO.
The 12 Centura Health hospitals bring the total number of CORHIO hospital members to 26. But only two of the hospital members are live on the HIE. Sixteen physician group practices and four mental health centers have joined the CORHIO but are not yet live. More information is available at corhio.org.
