The Right Information at the Right Time
The Children’s Care Alliance is a collaboration of hospitals, school districts and care providers committed to improving the quality of care for Lehigh Valley children.
The Virtual Health Village will allow seamless exchange of student electronic health records between different hospitals, clinics, physician offices and school districts in the Lehigh Valley. Rapid electronic exchange of information between partner organizations will assure that more complete, up-to-date information is available to health care providers, including school nurses, when a child is treated in an emergency room, clinic or doctor’s office or when the student visits the school health room.
What is the Virtual Health Village? What types of information might be shared? What does participation mean for my child? Who can see my child’s personal health information? How do I know my child’s information is kept private and secure? Find those answers and more by browsing our Frequently Asked Questions.
