Request for my clinical information to be withheld from the health information exchange (HIE)
What does it mean if I do not have an HIE record?
NHS healthcare staff caring for you may not be aware of your current medications, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had, in order to treat you safely in an emergency.
By not having an HIE record this will not prevent you from receiving care from either your GP or the trust.
The benefits of having an HIE record include:
- improved quality of care
- improved patient safety
- improved patient experience
- less delays in care
