Sharing clinical data offers considerable benefits for health systems.
The electronic exchange of the information reduces the complexity of faxing or mailing results and documentation -- such as encounter and discharge summaries, radiology reports and lab results -- to affiliated physicians. Your health system can benefit from viewing relevant information from physicians in the community. This information includes:
Removing data-sharing boundaries optimizes the quality of care and resource expenditure of your organization. Cerner’s clinical data exchange capabilities support your health organization’s physician connectivity strategy by improving referring physicians’ experience with your organization. And it also reduces friction throughout the system by driving out redundancies such as repeat diagnostic tests.
Hospital-to-Physician Interoperability: How It Works
Upon hospital discharge, a patient’s test results (laboratory or radiology) and specified documents, such as discharge summaries and operative notes, can be sent directly to the inbox of a physician in private practice. Medications, allergies and problems are passed as discrete data.
Secure Communication, Sharing Relevant Data
This network-sharing hub allows HIPAA-compliant, secure communication between your health system and providers in the community, regardless of data platform. Information is available whenever and wherever it’s needed, giving authorized physicians, nurses, pharmacists, lab technicians and business office personnel access to a single patient record at the same time. With access to more information, providers can reduce repeat tests, make better-informed decisions and electronically submit prescriptions and prescription refill requests.
“I basically have instant lab results. I can see a patient first thing in the morning, and before I go to lunch I can have his or her lab results in the chart ready for me to address.” -- Jennifer Kay, M.D., Ridge Family Practice
