​​With the new advancements in flow and process of medical records, electronic prescriptions, lab results, and so much more, it has become increasingly important for medical providers to communicate electronically a patient's medical history. This real-time health information exchange of electronic health information is made possible through the implementation of electronic health information exchange, popularly known as HIE. 

Electronic health information exchange (HIE) allows doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and other health care providers to appropriately access and securely share a patient's vital medical information - improving the speed, quality, safety and cost of patient care. 

Only authorized healthcare providers such as physicians can create, view, update or exchange any type of healthcare records.  All electronic sharing of health records follow strict guidelines and are shared through a secure network between care settings: physician's clinic, emergency rooms, or inpatient settings.

for patients 

RioOne HIE is a not-for- profit organization helping the community of Rio Grande Valley by facilitating the secure and lawful patient health information exchange.
