HealthShare Exchange (HSX) is a nonprofit community-directed organization that gathers and makes electronic patient health information available securely at the point of care throughout the Greater Philadelphia/Delaware Valley area’s healthcare ecosystem. HSX links disparate electronic medical record (EMR) systems of hospitals, health systems and healthcare stakeholders across the continuum of care along with the clinical data of healthcare insurers for Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. HSX services deliver real-time clinical information to our members, including a patient’s medical history as well as notifications to enable improved outcomes, care coordination and more cost-effective care for over 13 million patients. HSX is a HITRUST certified organization, a PA P3N certified Health Information Organization (HIO), a State of NJ Trusted Data Sharing Organization (TDSO) and is part of the national eHealth Exchange.
HSX is a membership-dues-supported organization that makes electronic patient-care information available securely throughout the area’s medical system, linking data across hospital systems and healthcare insurers and other healthcare organizations as a service to HSX members and participants. The HSX platform allows medical centers, insurers, and practice offices to share clinical records to make patient care more informed — by providing patient histories and event notifications throughout the system. Such exchange is part of the health information future for providers, payers, and consumers seeking better, more cost-effective care. It promotes continuity of care, reduces the need to transmit or transport medical information by patients or by fax, and helps to reduce duplicate services.
