HIExTM Shared Community Health Record Accessed across the Internet
  • HIExTM is a community care secured relational database fully HIPAA compliant for ambulatory care providers. HIExTM gathers a broad range of medical, epidemiological, and demographic information on patients visiting ambulatory points of care. The database would be accessible to all subscribers in real time, and allows for text entry of contextual notes. This database is user friendly, has three levels of security, and is expected to help decrease cost of care and medical errors.
  • This is a handheld data acquisition software integrated with a desktop synchronization and server publishing system allowing nursing students to compile data gathered from their clinical experiences in less than 3 minutes for about 20 screens. Supervising faculty can track clinical progress of their students especially when they conduct their clinical training in remote geographical areas. Diagnosis. The software is HIPAA compliant.
The database is copyrighted and trademarked. It is available for licensing.
