Introducing ‘NC HealthConnex’ – a rebranded North Carolina Health Information Exchange

Please view details about the rebranded North Carolina Health Information Exchange, which is now known as 'NC HealthConnex.' This data is available in Epic@UNC via CareEverywhere and will be labeled as “NC HealthConnex (formerly NCHIE).”

The NCHIE is a secure, standardized electronic system through which providers can share patient health information across North Carolina. As adoption continued to grow, the state of North Carolina created the NC Health Information Exchange Authority (NCHIEA) to operate this information exchange that has been rebranded as “NC HealthConnex.”

UNC Medical Center, UNC REX Healthcare, High Point Regional, Nash Health Care, Chatham Hospital and Pardee Hospital have been connected to the NC Health Information Exchange (NCHIE) for several years. Starting in June 2017, Caldwell Memorial and Johnston Health will be connected to NC HealthConnex as well.

  • This data is available in Epic@UNC via CareEverywhere and will be labeled as “NC HealthConnex (formerly NCHIE).”
  • An LMS module with details and requirements of NC HealthConnex will be assigned to all clinical staff at participating entities.
  • As part of this rebranding (and as part of the initial rollout at Caldwell and Johnston), each outpatient clinic and inpatient hospital departments will receive a packet of NC HealthConnex information from the (NCHIEA):
    • The NCHIEA requires that NC HealthConnex information be made available at all patient scheduling and registration areas. Outpatient clinic and inpatient hospital department managers are asked to post the new NC HealthConnex brochures in these areas when received, as well as order additional brochures when needed. Ordering instructions are included in the packet received by mail from the NCHIEA. 
    • Please remove and recycle any brochures in your clinics/units that reference the NCHIE as these materials are now outdated.
