Welcome to VITL

Sharing patient data informs better health care.

VITL operates the Vermont Health Information Exchange. We aggregate patient health data to create a more complete health record for each Vermonter and we bring all of those records together to help our partners provide better patient care, understand the health of our population, and improve the effectiveness and efficiency of our health care system.
