PCCI Receives Visionary Grant to Build Intelligent Social-Health Information Exchange
What is the IEP?
Different providers in the healthcare system and across community-based organizations have limited means of communication, causing vital patient information to slip through the cracks, information that is essential to providing excellent healthcare or even saving a life. The Dallas Information Exchange Portal (IEP) will create a secure seamless system that connects healthcare and community-based organizations in the Dallas-Fort Worth region, allowing for smart sharing of information that makes a tangible difference in the lives of first thousands but, ultimately, we hope millions of people.
Why are we creating it?
Integrating information from social and healthcare organizations will provide quality and safe healthcare for the broadest range of citizens in our community. The IEP will provide a higher, more consistent level of healthcare to even the most vulnerable populations across the community, resulting in a more efficient, cost-effective use of resources and, most importantly, lives saved.
