Emergent & EMS care

In a severe health crisis, every second counts. Precious minutes spent on medical history discovery could be time lost on potentially life-saving care.

 KeyHIE allows emergency room and EMS health professionals quick and easy online access to a patient's health information, including:

  • Medication lists and allergies
  • Imaging and lab test results
  • Physician reports
  • And much more

EMS can participate without an EHR
No EHR? No problem! Emergency Medical Services can participate with KeyHIE Transform™, our low-cost, HL7-compliant technology that converts MDS/OASIS to Continuity of Care Documents (CCDs) that are automatically sent to the KeyHIE system.

Connectivity to other HIEs in Pennsylvania and beyond
Our interoperability means there is no need to pay for and manage multiple EHR logins. One credential opens the door to a vast network of information systems and platforms.

Additionally, we’re a charter member of the Pennsylvania eHealth Partnership Authority, an organization that works with health information exchanges, integrated delivery networks, to develop a community shared services layer for increased interoperability.

The authority is also participating in a national HIE connectivity initiative using the HealtheWays’ eHealth Exchange platform.

KeyHIE privacy and security safeguards meet or exceed federal, state, and local requirements including HIPAA and HITECH rules. KeyHIE uses the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol to provide secure Web services communication as well as secure Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections. KeyHIE is NIST 800-53 compliant.
