Counties served by Chattanooga's medical institutions

Chattanooga serves the medical needs of a population spread across several states. I have attached the map with the patients coming from the adjacent counties in TN, GA and AL.

Wouldn't be great if:
- the clinical information would be shared in a seamless and secure way among all the providers in this area?
- the patients would be able to obtain their medical records in a few minutes even when they visit relatives in California?
- the quality of care would be increased as a result of the faster exchange of medical information?

In the next few months, drawing from the experience gained while working with various national HIEs, I will share my thoughts on how I think we can make this happen. Stay tuned.
