A Sneak Peak
Watch as his providers leverage nationwide patient identification and linking, smart record locator services, a federated data broker and event notifications to coordinate care and help avoid readmission.
Primary Care Provider (athenaClinicals EHR)
Oscar will visit his hometown PCP at an athenahealth facility in upstate New York, who will refer him to a neurologist. As his PCP automatically enrolls patients who have agreed to data sharing as part of their standard HIPAA agreement, Oscar’s records from his current and past PCP visits are available via the CommonWell network to other participating providers.
Neurologist (Greenway Health Intergy)
After the neurologist runs a few tests, Oscar is diagnosed with MS and prescribed new medications to help him manage his chronic condition. Accessing CommonWell services within his native workflow, the neurologist can preview the clinical document files within the patient’s chart and/or save a select number of records. Once it is saved to the chart, the neurologist can consume portions of the data directly into the Greenway EHR, as he sees fit.
Inpatient ICU (MEDITECH Expanse)
Using FHIR, the MEDITECH EHR automatically queries the CommonWell network and retrieves his records through a federated query. Upon admittance and discharge, MEDITECH sends a notification to his New York PCP alerting him of Oscar’s diagnosis and that he was discharged to Home Health.
Urgent Care (Health Gorilla Patient360™)
Once fully recovered, Oscar goes on a vacation to Puerto Rico and ends up needing to visit an urgent care clinic. Thankfully, his records are easily retrievable since the clinic is using Health Gorilla’s Patient360™, a CommonWell Connector™ product.
Want to know what happens next…? The good news is regardless of where his care occurs, Oscar and his providers have access to his health records nationwide via the CommonWell Health Alliance network, resulting in positive health outcomes.
