RWJ Health Connect is affiliated with The Jersey Health Connect Health Information Organization and was created to help patients and providers in New Jersey share health information. Dozens of hospitals, health systems, physician practices and other providers are currently collaborating through Jersey Health Connect. This allows you continued flexibility in choosing providers while maintaining your records in a central place.
What are the benefits to patients?
Historically, a major obstacle in care delivery has been untimely and limited access to patient medical information. Since most patients see multiple providers, their medical information has to be shared across different systems based on different technologies. These technical differences create barriers to both sharing and using information in a timely manner, resulting in delays, duplicated efforts and testing, potential errors, etc.
Through participation in RWJ Health Connect, providers can quickly share medical data, making it easier to collaborate on patient care to support better outcomes. It also makes it easier for patients to participate in their care by providing timely, secure access to all relevant medical information.
How is my medical information secured?
Only patients and providers who are authorized — including physicians, hospitals, labs, etc.— have secure, instant access to your vital medical information.
Protecting patient privacy is a top priority and access to patient data is strictly regulated. Many State and Federal laws set strict guidelines for protecting patient privacy. Additionally, RWJ Health Connect has internal requirements above and beyond those set by law. We realize that patients must feel confident and comfortable with participating, and we make every effort to ensure patient data is securely managed.
