UTHealth School of Biomedical Informatics to connect records for medical providers in UT System

HOUSTON – (May 26, 2016) – With more than one million  patient encounters throughout the Lone Star State every year, University of Texas System-owned hospitals and clinics will soon be sharing medical records.

The effort is part of the UT System’s “Quantum Leap” initiative and the aim is to leverage the system’s size and expertise to enhance the delivery of health care at the six existing UT health institutions with the potential to expand the project to their affiliated (not owned) hospitals and clinics and to the two new medical schools at UT Austin and UT Rio Grande Valley, which open in July.
