Health Information Exchange enhances decision making

Posted Jun 17 2010 8:10pm
A study by the Medical College of Wisconsin finds that emergency room doctors who have electronic access to patient data via a health information exchange spend less time gathering information and make better-informed clinical decisions in treating patients. Doctors using the WHIE reported that electronic access to patient data reduced the time they spent gathering pertinent information about patients and helped the doctors gain a more comprehensive perspective on patients, enabling faster and better informed treatment decisions.
