Birmingham AL /PRNewswire/ -- SuccessEHS today announced that it is one of the first ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) vendors to successfully move into production health information exchange (HIE) with South Carolina's Health Information Exchange (SCHIEx). SuccessEHS was the first ambulatory EHR vendor to demonstrate a successful connection with SCHIEx in 2012, and has now completed the onboarding process.
SCHIEx is a technology and policy framework that enables participating health care providers to electronically exchange clinical information such as medical histories, medications, allergies, diagnoses and procedures for treatment, public health and quality reporting purposes.
