VieCure enables providers to independently export EHI for individual patients and their patient populations at any time, without requiring developer assistance. The export formats include both comma-separated values (CSV) files and the native formats of documents and notes attached to the account. The CSV file and associated documents are stored in a dedicated folder named after the patient. The contents of data recorded directly in VieCure are written into the CSV file, with each data field separated by commas. VieCure also allows the upload and association of documents with the patient’s chart, and the EHI Export feature will produce those documents and notes in their original native formats as they were uploaded.
