In an effort to allow physicians to exchange real-time vital health information, three Denver regional care providers have linked.

The Children’s Hospital, Kaiser Permanente Colorado and Exempla Healthcare have formed a new health information exchange system. According to the organizations, through the partnership, patients may show up at any one of the hospitals and clinics and have their records instantly available to doctors with the click of a button.

The organizations say all records are up-to-date and changes are logged in real time, helping the quality of patient care, no matter where and by whom they are seen. Access to patient records is secure and requires authorization.

With more than 1,000 healthcare professionals representing the full spectrum of pediatric specialties, The Children’s Hospital network of care includes its main campus, 16 Children’s Care Centers and more than 400 outreach clinics. Kaiser Permanente Colorado provides comprehensive health care services to over 480,000 members through 20 medical offices and a network of affiliated hospitals and physicians. Exempla Healthcare, formed in 1998, serves metropolitan Denver through its three hospitals — Exempla Good Samaritan Medical Center, Exempla Lutheran Medical Center, Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital — and the Exempla Physician Network of primary care, occupational medicine and specialty physicians.
