Memorial Hermann Information Exchange - FAQ
How will MHiE benefit my family and me?
When you need immediate medical attention, the doctor needs your most up-to-date health information right away. MHiE helps healthcare professionals access that information quickly and easily so they can manage your treatment based on current medications you are taking and your existing medical conditions.
MHiE combines your medical information from multiple Exchange Members into a single digital record. When you opt in to MHiE, you give physicians and healthcare organizations that are Exchange Members access to your medical history. You benefit from more coordinated care, which reduces the likelihood of dangerous drug interactions, lost test results or unnecessary procedures.

By opting in to MHiE, your key medical information is made available to caregivers who are members of the exchange and have a clinical reason for accessing your information.
