Below you will find general guidelines for data providers connecting to the Atlantic Coast HIE. While the guidelines below outline the general connection approach it is important to note that a customized connection plan will be determined between the Atlantic Coast HIE and each data provider. For inquiries and specific information regarding connecting to the HIE please visit the Contact page.

Reference Labs:
Reference lab connections to the HIE will work in conjunction with existing delivery methods. When a reference lab connects to the HIE a copy of results, for participating providers' patients, will be sent to the HIE. Results will be sent directly to the provider of record. This will allow the physician to have the result documented electronically as part of his or her legal record of the patient, while the HIE will maintain the result for other providers who need it to treat the patient. Existing methods (e.g., EMR system, portal, paper) will still be available for placing orders directly to reference labs.

Diagnostic Imaging Centers:
Diagnostic Imaging center connections to the HIE will work in conjunction with existing delivery methods. When a Diagnostic Imaging Center connects to the HIE a copy of the text report will be sent to the HIE. Results will be sent directly to the provider of record. This will allow the physician to have the result documented electronically as part of his or her legal record of the patient, while the HIE will maintain the result for other providers who need it to treat the patient. Existing methods (e.g., EMR system, portal, paper) will still be available for placing orders directly to Diagnostic Imaging Centers.

Other Data Providers:
As with reference labs and diagnostic imaging centers all other data providers will send a copy of results and/or reports to the HIE and maintain current delivery methods for documenting results as part of the Provider's legal medical record.
