Northern Virginia Regional Health Information Organization Medication History Pilot

Established in 2006, the Northern Virginia Regional Health Information Organization, Inc. (NoVaRHIO) is a consortium of area health care providers, hospitals, business leaders, local governments and universities. Along with patient advocates from all sectors of the community, NoVaRHIO is working to assure that every northern Virginian will have access to the benefits of a full electronic health information exchange. Audacious Inquiry worked on behalf of NOVARHIO and Inova Health System with GE Healthcare to provide Inova Alexandria Emergency Department physicians with patient medication history (with patient permission) to help in diagnosis and in determining the course of treatment during times of great health risk. The pilot project went live on March, 22, 2011.
