The New Hampshire Health Information Organization (NHHIO) is the public agency responsible for the administration of the New Hampshire state-wide health information exchange (HIE). In order to promote the widespread adoption of the HIE, NHHIO with the guidance of multiple stakeholders, is deploying a statewide HIE infrastructure (NH Health Information Exchange) that will be widely available, and will provide an additional method for healthcare organizations to use to exchange health information. The NH Health Information Exchange will provide a secure data transmission conduit for members of the healthcare community to exchange clinical information, among participants who have computer systems in place. This Agreement governs the terms, conditions and limitations of Participant’s access to and use of the NH Health Information Exchange and its related online tools and services. The Agreement does not prevent participants from exchanging information with the State of New Hampshire and its departments and agencies or with other providers who may or may not participate in the NH Health Information Exchange, using other methods of communication.
