HealthLink Enables Doctors
Danbury Hospital has begun introducing HealthLink to the medical community to allow medical professionals to better manage your care. HealthLink is all about patient-centered care. Your healthcare team, including providers here at the hospital and at offsite offices, will have immediate access to your medical history in a secure, protected environment. HealthLink will allow your healthcare team to:
- Exchange patient health information, such as test results, in real time

HealthLink lets doctors more readily and efficiently communicate about your medical condition and healthcare needs to improve treatment you receive.
At Danbury Hospital, our network of health providers care about your health and the security of your health records. As always, we use the most advanced security measures to protect your health information. We’ve applied tools and processes from leading healthcare institutions to ensure all appropriate measures have been taken to protect and secure your information.
Why Has Danbury Hospital Launched HealthLink?
Danbury Hospital has launched HealthLink to promote a healthier community.
Innovative, patient-centered technology enables medical professionals in our region to access updated health records, when they need them, to give you the best care. This includes Danbury Hospital affiliated medical practices, labs and radiology centers. Area pharmacies are also included in HealthLink to support the new, more efficient electronic prescription ordering process.
In the future, HealthLink will include results from other testing facilities including labs and imaging centers in our region.
