NEBRASKA HEALTH INFORMATION INITIATIVE (NeHII)

NEBRASKA HEALTH INFORMATION INITIATIVE (NeHII)

NeHII is a state-wide, internet-based, health information exchange. It is sponsored by Nebraska health care providers and health insurers who share and use your information for treatment and payment purposes. Using NeHII, participating providers and health insurers can see certain health, demographic and payment information (your health information) in each others records. They can use this information for treatment and payment purposes. Using NeHII, your participating doctors can quickly find certain health information about you, such as your lab and x-ray results from other participating providers who have treated you in the past. Your participating doctors, hospital or pharmacy can quickly verify your insurance coverage by checking your enrollment status with participating health insurers. Your participating health insurer can electronically obtain health information needed to process your claim from the records of participating providers.
