The newly formed North Hawaii Health Information Exchange (NHHIE) is implementing Cambridge, Mass.-based Wellogic’s provider and consumer portals and the Wellogic Health Information Exchange (HIE) in an effort to establish a connected healthcare community.

The NHHIE — a collaborative effort involving the North Hawaii Community Hospital, a 30-bed acute care hospital located in Kamuela, and the Hawaii Independent Physician’s Association, along with independent physicians and their staff — aims to integrate the region’s leading payors, laboratories, imaging centers, pharmacies, and other trading partners. Through the use of Wellogic’s portals and HIE, the organization hopes to enable better management of transitions in care and address issues caused by gaps in care, says the company.

In rolling out the HIE, North Hawaii will utilize implementation and operations services from India-based HCL, it adds.
