Texas Community HIE Rebrands, Expands Offerings to Other States

A community health information exchange (HIE) based in Texas has renamed itself C3HIE based on the themes of “Connected, Collaborative, and Community.”

HASA, a non-profit, community health information exchange (HIE) in Texas, announced that it has changed its name and brand identity to C3HIE to reflect its new vision of helping the healthcare industry become more connected.

Based on the themes of “Connected, Collaborative, and Community,” C3HIE’s new mission is to deliver the right data at the right time to care teams, regardless of geography or provider type.  

“We are very excited about our new name and brand positioning,” Phil Beckett, CEO of C3HIE, noted in a public statement. “Our vision is to create healthier and connected communities where the patient always comes first. To achieve this, our goal is to provide care teams with access to health data for making collaborative decisions for ensuring the best possible health outcomes.”

In addition to the rebranding, C3HIE now provides HIE tools in over 128 Texas counties and physicians in California, Delaware, and Florida.

C3HIE’s history began in 2006 when it helped the San Antonio healthcare community with High Utilizers (HU) in the emergency rooms. It evolved into an HIE in 2011.

Within a few years, it expanded to Corpus Christi, west Texas, north Texas, and the Dallas Fort-Worth areas.

“This new brand builds on our legacy and supports our expansion in areas outside of Texas,” added Beckett. “We hope to continue this growth and further democratize health data in new and innovative ways.”
