Montreal-based TELUS Health Solutions will implement its health information exchange platform, Oacis HIE, to link 12 emergency departments in the Charleston, S.C. region.

The participating hospitals are members of the Carolina eHealth Alliance. Connecting the ERs is a test of the benefits of expanding health information exchange in the region.

Using the Oacis HIE platform, ER clinicians will have access to data from other emergency departments a patient has visited. This information could include ER/clinic notes, discharge summaries, lab/pathology/radiology results, care and referral data, prescriptions, and problem lists.

More information is available at telushealth.com.
