General Information and Resources

Pennsylvania is a national leader in improving the quality and efficiency of health care. The Pennsylvania eHealth Partnership Authority will work with stakeholders to advance work on health information exchange, to improve patient safety and make the health care system more efficient.

An exchange will provide health care professionals a safe, secure, and reliable way to access the clinical data they need to provide the most effective patient-centered care.

Using electronic medical technologies provide health care professionals with a complete picture of a patient’s medical reports and give providers more informed and better choices in how health care professionals deliver care. Having access to a complete patient record will help stop unnecessary duplicative and expensive tests and procedures.
