“We have seen many "medical breakthroughs" save lives and enthrall the public. But the quiet work of a dedicated group of diverse stakeholders from across state will enable the greatest "breakthrough" ever seen in Kansas medicine.
This group, working in a collaborative fashion, is constructing the Kansas Health Information Exchange. A public/private partnership orchestrating and leveraging existing health care exchanges, KHI is providing a seamless and secure sharing of clinical health Information to physicians and medical facilities across the state.
The path has not been smooth, but continuous progress has been made. Already two independent health information organizations have been approved to begin this sharing. Our hope, our goal is to facilitate access to important patient health information at the appropriate time to improve safety, efficiency, and outcomes for the citizens of Kansas.
We invite you to join our journey; it has only begun.”
Dr. Joe Davison, KHIE Chairman of the Board
"Health information exchange offers a secure and cost effective way for providers and health plans to improve care and control costs. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas recognizes the value that collaboration through health information exchange offers for providers, payers and all Kansans.
We are pleased to support the activities of KHIE to establish health information exchange in Kansas."
