Northern Virginia Regional Health Information Organization (NoVaRHIO), based in Alexandria, Va., announced their partnership with GE Healthcare (Barrington, Ill.) to go live with a full scale interoperable eHealth Information Exchange (eHIE) connecting patients and physicians across the region.

GE Healthcare’s Global eHIE system will provide medication histories to Inova Alexandria physicians for their estimated 5,000 monthly Emergency Department (ED) patients. GE Healthcare will provide data directly into the electronic medical record (EMR) systems and specialty care applications currently deployed in the Inova Alexandria ED. GE Healthcare’s Global eHIE will enable community-wide data to be fully integrated into provider workflow and is expected to be online this year.

Though the initial agreement serves the Alexandria ED alone, the plans provide for eventual expansion to other Inova EDs as well as to the EDs of other NoVaRHIO hospital system partners.
