(Health Information Exchange Gateway)….The web-based Gateway was launched by the California Department of Public Health.
The CDPH says the Gateway streamlines the collection of public health data that is vital to surveillance and research. The Gateway provides a single point-of-entry for health care providers to electronically submit data to the CDHP. Since its launch on October 1st, more than 220 providers and hospitals have registered to submit data. State Public Health Officer, Doctor Ron Chapman, says the information they gain through this effort will ultimately lead to more and better research that will improve individual and public health. The Gateway can be accessed at hie.cdhp.ca.gov.
