The ultimate solution to removing barriers to interoperability between disparate electronic health record (EHR) systems continues to elude the healthcare industry’s sharpest developers, and that challenge is expected to be the number one topic discussed among vendors and attendees at this year’s Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference in Las Vegas.
Hundreds of health information exchange (HIE) vendors will be represented and InteliChart will be among them, there to discuss our Enterprise Patient Portal Platform, which offers hospitals, physician practices, RHIOs, and ACOs a single-portal solution for stable, secure HIE.
InteliChart’s sustainable single-portal solution standardizes and displays aggregated patient data from ambulatory and acute care EHRs simultaneously and on a single view screen. It’s a hospital system’s best choice for chronic care management and remote patient monitoring, referral management and transition of care, for exchanging updated data between care providers, and for communicating with engaged patients.
InteliChart’s easy-to-use portal enables caregivers to focus their maximum attention on the patient, rather than on the EHR interface. And patients get to view their medical records, lab test results, and schedule appointments from a single, clear, easily understood personal health record (PHR) interface.
InteliChart Enterprise Patient Portal clients can offer their patients:
• Self appointment scheduling (reduces workload on staff);
• Patient reminders/alerts (fewer missed appointments);
• Lab test results (fulfills meaningful use requirements);
• Customizable forms;
• Medication refill requests, appointment reminders, and recall alerts on their smartphones through automated e-mails, texts, and phone calls;
• Online statements and bill-pay;
• Secure messaging;
• A personal health record (PHR);
• Exporting of their private health data data to external electronic health records (EHRs);
• Visit and discharge summaries (fulfills meaningful use requirements)
• Downloadable/printable continuity of care documents (CCDs), and
• Support for mobile health technologies.
Additionally, EHR developers can use our unique, customizable, application program interfaces (APIs) to effectively add InteliChart’s HIE platform capabilities to their own products.
Robust health information exchange between healthcare providers, patients, payers, and across state lines, underlies payment reform, chronic disease population reporting, point-of-care decision support, telemedicine to remote areas, big data mining, integrated healthcare, and population health management.
Though meaningful use is evolving, healthcare providers are still required to demonstrate specific EHR capabilities to receive Medicare and Medicaid payments. InteliChart’s Enterprise Patient Portal Solution is fully 2014 ONC certified and enables healthcare providers to attest to meaningful use and receive incentive payments.
Currently, InteliChart’s Enterprise Patient Portal technology is in operation at more than 500 client sites throughout the nation, including Alaska and Hawaii.
Come see how InteliChart’s Enterprise Patient Portal helps you attest to meaningful use and receive incentive payments, as well as prepares your organization for tomorrow’s payment reform, chronic disease reporting, and patient population management requirements.
