When you choose to participate in the Healthconnect network, your physician will record your authorization so that the next healthcare provider you see will have access to your information. You may choose to discontinue participation at any time. If you do not wish to participate, your records will not be visible to the next provider you see.
Should you have to make a trip to the emergency room, the ER staff will have ready access to any preexisting conditions or allergies to help ensure your safety and timely treatment. This will help to avoid medication errors and contraindicated procedures.
Your participating doctor will have a more complete view of your medical
history by having access to your historical health information from your other healthcare providers.

Healthconnect is a non-profit regional health information network created for ALL residents of Southeast Texas.
