"I was caring for an ED patient who suffered blunt trauma to his torso and required CT imaging to rule out internal bleeding. When asked by the nurse and me if he has any allergies, he denied. I checked the HIE for allergies before ordering a CT scan with IV contrast and was surprised to see that he had a documented anaphylaxis to IV contrast at another facility. This information prevented me from ordering a test that could have harmed my patient."
"Patients sometimes struggle to remember the details of their past immunizations. The staff is happy with [Immunization Query]. Now the nurses can see immunizations and then pull them into the workflow. This helps the nurses get an accurate record of previously administered vaccines. Immunization query lets the nurses confirm immunizations. This makes it easier for us to get an accurate immunization history for our patients."
"I have to say thank you for CommonWell. We have an extremely complicated patient of Dr. Parker’s and our Conservative Management Clinic who was hospitalized at Mayo on 9/15/18 and discharged 9/17/18. His wife called me informing me the Mayo providers needed his medications changed. I was so excited to see all of the Mayo information regarding that stay in CommonWell so I could collaborate with Dr. Parker. The patient received the needed care much faster having the records immediately available."
"Cerner has played a huge role in interoperability, and we've been able to take advantage of that. We are fortunate that we've been able to collaborate with Cerner on a lot of the interoperability initiatives."
