Our mission is to improve the health of the people of Humboldt County with health information exchange and support for community health improvement.
Health Information Exchange (HIE)
Electronic health information exchange (HIE) allows doctors, nurses, pharmacists, other health care providers and patients to appropriately access and securely share a patient’s vital medical information electronically—improving the speed, quality, safety and cost of patient care.
The North Coast Care Connect (Care Connect) is a network of health and social service providers (a Community Information Exchange) who have partnered together to coordinate care for persons in need of assistance. When persons consent to share their information with the network, Partner Agencies are able to share client information using a secure data platform and to provide coordination and electronic referrals for services.
