LaHIE will give you the ability to set up notifications that alert you
when your patient has been admitted or discharged from the hospital or
emergency department, easily retrieve follow up information such as
discharge summaries, lab data or radiology reports, and understand how
we enable you to electronically refer your patient to a specialist
without ever using the fax machine.
