The Benefits of Giving Consent

Better Care at the Point of Care

When you are ill or have a medical emergency, you want to be sure that your attending clinicians have all of the data they need to make the right medical decisions on your behalf. With Healthix, you can be sure that any clinician or healthcare organization involved in your care will have real-time access to your medical records, providing you with the right care, at the right time – especially in an emergency.

With your consent, clinicians will be able to:

  • Access your comprehensive patient data, such as medications, lab results and diagnostic reports all available through Healthix.
  • Treat you more effectively because they have a better understanding of your medical history, past treatments and medications.
  • Communicate and collaborate with other clinicians involved in your care, providing better care coordination for you.
  • Put together a patient-centered view of your medical needs based on clinical data from many sources.
