FRANKLIN, Tenn., March 13, 2023 (Newswire.com) - MEDHOST®, a leading EHR (electronic health record) and healthcare IT solutions provider, has enhanced its interoperability capabilities by becoming a service adopter with CommonWell Health Alliance.
The CommonWell network provides a secure, nationwide exchange of health records for more than 34,000 provider sites and includes more than 191 million unique individuals. Through this initiative, MEDHOST customers can now take advantage of an automated solution to facilitate the transfer and access of patient information.
The process can start as early as pre-registration or can be initiated when patients arrive for check-in. Here, they can choose to have their medical information securely shared with other network providers through the CommonWell Health Alliance.
By opting in, patients permit clinicians to retrieve medical histories from other CommonWell-partnered entities through a single click within MEDHOST solutions. As they move between providers and instances of care, the patient's clinical information, such as allergies, home medications, and problems, are available via CommonWell to immediately enhance the comprehensive patient care experience.
- Other values and benefits of CommonWell integration include:
- Automatic retrieval of the latest documentation for clinical review
- Auto-response to requests for CCDA documents from other facilities
- Assistance in meeting the 2022 IPPS measure for bi-directional communication with Health Information Exchanges (HIE)
