HEALTH INFORMATION EXCHANGE
Carondelet Health Network is proud to participate in the Health Information Network of Arizona!
The Health Information Network of Arizona, or HINAz, is a health information exchange that shares data from participating healthcare organizations across Arizona in a secure, HIPAA-compliant way.
Participating in HINAz has many benefits to patients and providers including:
- Improve quality of care by being able to access critical patient information in a timely manner
- Enable better communication and coordination of patient care across healthcare providers
- Provide access to complete medical information about patients, in order to serve them better
- Establish a secure platform to share key clinical data about our patients
Carondelet Health Network believes that health information exchange will enable us to better care for all of our patients. Your health information is completely secure and is only accessed by authorized providers responsible for direct care to you, as a patient.
During your next visit to Carondelet Health Network, you will be provided with information regarding HINAz. You will have the choice of opting out of the exchange for your data. Should you decide to opt out, your clinical information will not be available under any circumstances, including an emergency, to Carondelet providers. If you change your mind, you can change your participation status at any time.
