Case Study: NEHII Rises to the Challenge of COVID-19 with Cloud-Based Analytics and Robust Patient Matching Tools
The Nebraska Health Information Initiative (NEHII) is a leading non-profit health information exchange (HIE) serving more than 4 million residents across 300 participating health care providers, payers and the State of Nebraska.
NEHII partnered with NextGate to accurately match and connect critical public health information across the state of Nebraska to support trusted data exchange and case reporting for COVID-19 using an Enterprise Master Patient Index on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
COVID-19 has affected nearly every community in the United States, creating a significant challenge for healthcare leaders looking to coordinate their actions at the local and regional level. Fortunately, in states like Nebraska, state-level health information exchanges (HIEs) are stepping up to use their infrastructure to support rapid, effective public health interventions.
With advanced cloud-based infrastructure from AWS and a reliable, secure enterprise master patient index (EMPI) from NextGate Solutions, Nebraska Health Information Initiative (NEHII) is providing critical insights to inform COVID response activities for those affected by the virus.
