What is the ConnectVirginia Health Information Exchange?

About ConnectVirginia  

ConnectVirginia is the Statewide Health Information Exchange (HIE) for the Commonwealth of Virginia.  It provides a safe, confidential, electronic system to support the exchange of patient medical records among healthcare providers, both here in Virginia and beyond.  This initiative is being led by Community Health Alliance, Inc., a Virginia-based not-for-profit company, and a Governing Body of health care professionals and executives from across the Commonwealth. 

ConnectVirginia utilizes secure, electronic, internet-based technology to allow medical information to be exchanged by participating health care providers. As a result, health care providers will have more complete medical information to provide higher quality care for patients and will be able to more easily coordinate treatment with other health care providers. 

How do I participate?  

You do not have to take any action to have your medical information shared among authorized health care providers that are treating you. .ConnectVirginia understands that your health information belongs to you.  If you choose to "opt-out" of ConnectVirginia, your health information will not be available through ConnectVirginia, except in the case of a life-threatening medical emergency or for public health reporting that is required by law. You are not required to allow your medical records to be accessed through ConnectVirginia in order to receive treatment, and your health care benefits from health insurance or government programs will not be influenced by your decision to participate or not participate in ConnectVirginia.
