NeHII is now implementing site licensing which allows for all healthcare providers employed or contracted with a partcipating hospital to have access to the VHR at no charge to the individual provider.

What is Site Licensing?

Since 2009, NeHII asked that physicians support the costs of the health information exchange and pay monthly license fees to access PHI found in NeHII.  Initially, only physicians employed by a NeHII participating hospital in the ED department and hospitalists were allowed free usage of the NeHII Virtual Health Record (VHR).  NeHII is now implementing site licensing which allows for all healthcare providers employed by the hospital or contracted with the hospital to have access to the VHR.  Site licensing would cover ambulatory clinic, nursing home, pharmacy, and home health providers if they are employed by or are contracted with the hospital.  Site licensing does not cover physicians in private practice who have privileges at a hospital but are not employed by or contracted with the hospital.      

How can Site Licensing be Beneficial for a Participating Facility?

By implementing the site licensing model, a participation agreement only has to be signed by the hospital and alleviates additional participation agreements for other facilities owned by or contracted with a hospital or providers/provider groups employed by or contracted with a hospital.  The site licensing model uses a tiered approach based on the number of licensed beds for the facility.  By using the tiered approach, hospitals pay an annual flat fee which covers all healthcare providers employed by the hospital or contracted with the hospital.  All of these physicians and healthcare providers will have access to the NeHII VHR as covered by the annual fee.   

How does Site Licensing work?

Designated individuals at a participating facility and associated entities will be responsible for approving users to have access to NeHII.   A userid request will be completed and sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  Once the id is created, the NeHII trainer will contact the individual to educate them on using the VHR.  The designated individuals are responsible for ongoing user access management for their facility/associated entity.  

Which facilities participate in the site license agreement currently?

  • Alegent Creighton Health
  • Columbus Community Hospital
  • Montgomery County Health Systems
  • Nebraska Medical Center
  • Nebraska Methodist Health System
  • Regional West Medical Center
  • Sydney Regional Medical Center
