If you felt an expansion in the Force last week, it wasn’t “Star Wars Day” (“May the 4th Be With You”) – -it was the explosive joy and rejoicing experienced by several behavioral health agencies who successfully connected with the North Carolina Health Information Exchange via their electronic health record system through Patagonia Health.
“Patagonia Health serves North Carolina CABHAs (Critical Access Behavioral Health Agencies). With the NC HealthConnex (HIE) connection, Patagonia Health EHR enables patient data to follow the patient as they move from behavior health providers to other providers in the community,” said Abhi Muthiyan, CTO and co-founder of Patagonia Health. “Coordinated data sharing improves patient outcomes and reduces health care costs. . . In other words, with successful HIE connections, everyone wins.”
