The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), the sponsoring agency for the Florida Health Information Exchange (HIE), has announced that CommunityHealth IT has joined the exchange, bringing up to 2.2 million patients’ records onto the Florida HIE.

The non-profit CommunityHealth IT connects community healthcare providers and patients through its MyHealthStoryHIE, which leverages RelayHealth to expand access and the reliability of data across varied care settings.

Developed by CommunityHealth IT and powered by RelayHealth, MyHealthStory is a secure personal health record for patients and an integrated longitudinal medical record with robust HIE tools for healthcare providers, practices and institutions. CommunityHealth IT also provides resources for rural healthcare providers, including financial resources to assist them with connecting to the Florida HIE. Healthcare providers on RelayHealth’s enterprise HIE platform can gain cost-effective access to the Florida HIE through CommunityHealth IT.

“Joining the Florida HIE will help CommunityHealth IT continue to bridge the rural-urban divide and facilitate the exchange of information among all providers in Florida,” Kendra Siler-Marsiglio, Ph.D., president, CommunityHealth IT, said in a statement. “With RelayHealth’s vendor-neutral HIE platform, providers on MyHealthStorycan cost-effectively meet Stage 2 meaningful use requirements while having statewide exchange capabilities.”
