Incorporating Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) within the HIE Value Proposition
Omaha, NE, 4/29/2019 – H4 Technology, LLC, a leading provider of behavioral health data solutions, today announced it has joined the Strategic Health Information Exchange Collaborative (SHIEC) as a Strategic Business and Technology (SB&T) Partner. SHIEC is the national trade association representing health information exchanges (HIEs).
H4 Technology was founded by long-time HIE subject matter expert Chris Henkenius with the goal of utilizing interoperability standards to expand the functionality offered by HIEs. H4 Technology’s SDoH feature allows for social determinants to be joined with clinical & claims data already offered by HIEs to facilitate a whole person care approach by HIE participants.
“Healthcare organizations are increasingly leveraging HIE infrastructures to access value added services for the care of their patients. This win-win approach provides critical functionality to providers while empowering HIEs to solidify sustainability and independence as the healthcare landscape evolves.” said Chris Henkenius, Chief Executive Officer of H4 Technology.
“SHIEC is excited to have H4 Technology join the SB&T Partner program,” said Kelly Hoover Thompson, CEO of SHIEC. “SB&T Partners are selected based on their ability to bring unique, value-added solutions to our HIE community members. The innovative tools offered by H4 Technology enables SHIEC members to improve outcomes by providing access to community services once a patient leaves the clinic or hospital. SHIEC looks forward to working with H4 Technology.”
