The Greater Dayton Area Hospital Association (GDAHA) announced its partnership with HealthBridge, a not-for-profit health information exchange located in Cincinnati, to establish health information exchange services for the Greater Dayton region. This partnership will create one of the nation’s largest secure health information networks connecting hospitals and physicians in Dayton and Cincinnati. Once the Dayton-Cincinnati health information exchange is complete, more than 50 hospitals and 7,500 physicians will be connected across Southwest, Ohio.

The use of cutting edge technology among hospitals in the Dayton region is a continuation of the collaboration on health information technology that began with the adoption of Verona, Wis.-based Epic by Premier Health Partners, the Kettering Health Network, and The Children’s Medical Center of Dayton.

Connectivity through HealthBridge will start with nine hospitals that are part of Premier Health Partners and the Kettering Health Network. By the end of 2011, 80 percent of GDAHA hospitals, CompuNet Clinical Labs, and Public Health–Dayton and Montgomery County will be connected to the Dayton health information exchange. 80 percent of area physicians will be connected by the end of 2012.
