The SunCoast RHIO is a Regional Health Information Organization. We are a technology outfitting and connectivity company. We supply software, services, and technology capabilities to healthcare entities.
This RHIO originally offered services to the Florida counties of the South West Region. Our Website is not fancy. Much like our appoach to work, our priorities focus on performance and delivery. We deeply understand our field and the business of clinical healthcare delivery. We are not afraid to get into the trenches with our clients when deadlines approach.
We solve clinical technology and business problems. We do more than just talk about problem solving, we do it - and with a track record to prove it. We are now a nationwide commercial company.
We electronically connect healthcare providers. Providers include Hospitals, Doctors, Specialty Practices, Clinics, ACO's, Social Service Agencies, Government, and other health related practitioners.
Additionally, we work with organizations
oriented toward quality measurement and reporting with revenue impact.
The RHIO provides products and services including but not limited to Electronic Health Records, Personal Health Records, Health Information Exchange, Incentive Reporting, Quality Measures, and Electronic Submission of Medical Documentation.
