  29. 29. Health Information Exchange (HIE)Engagement and Encouraging Adoption • An HIE Solution brings health information systems together across regions and states in order to provide access to a patient’s information in one centralized record. • Multiple healthcare providers with access to the same record of clinical information will make healthcare delivery more robust and efficient with improved continuity, better outcomes, and reduced cost. There are significant benefits to patients, healthcare providers, payers and employers. 33
  30. 30. Core HIE FunctionsProvides access to a current patient summary from a variety of sources (From Where and When): Problem List/Diagnosis Medications Immunizations Allergies Procedures Lab Data Radiology Data Encounter Summaries
  31. 31. Why the HIE is Accessed?When and why a Provider needs to access the HIE: New patient, not seen before Infrequent patient Patient known to have received care elsewhere Complex patient Tracking of patient Patient ER visits and hospital stays EHR is unavailable Remote Access 35
  32. 32. Value/Benefits of HIE• Access to each patient’s health information from a variety of healthcare provider sources• Improved situational awareness regarding patient’s health and use of health systems, better coordination of care• Better triage and evaluation capability: Dx/Problem list, prior procedures, Rx/Medications, Allergies, tests; lab/x-ray, progress note and summaries• Improved efficiency in making diagnosis and management plans• Decrease unnecessary duplication of tests• Readmission avoidance• Other Benefits : Data Analytics, Public Health, PCMH, ACO
  33. 33. Cloud Based
  34. 34. Solution: Core HIE – High Level Physicians Privacy Officers HTTPS HIE Platform Web-based access to the longitudinal patient record • Demographics Health Information • Labs, Rads Hospital with Exchange (HIE) • Encounters EMR • Allergies • Diagnosis • Transcribed documents • Medications • Problems • Procedures HL7/CCD, XDS, SSO • Immunizations Direct Secure Messaging Clinic with Patient Privacy & Consent EMR Notifications & Seamless integration with EHRs Subscriptions • User Subscribed Notifications • Send to My EHR Secure Inbox • Portal embedded within EHR E-Mail Other HIEs Mobile
