Connecting to protect your health.
Shouldn’t your health care provider have a complete picture of your health and medical history before treating you?
SCHIEx gives participating health care providers secure access to your medical records online. It connects doctors, labs and hospitals across the state with information about you that enables them to make well-informed decisions about your care.
What does this mean for you? It means healthcare professionals will have access to the information they need to coordinate your care and reduce mistakes, especially in emergencies. You may be able to avoid duplicate tests performed in different doctors’ offices and fill out less paperwork at each visit.
Your doctors may already share information about your health records through fax, email and postal mail. SCHIEx makes it faster, easier and more secure for your providers to share information. It enhances the collaborative, coordinated efforts between the medical professionals treating you and provides a higher standard of care.

- Your health care professionals can collaborate and communicate on your care.
- Your personal health data is available statewide if you need treatment away from home.
