HealthInfoNet's Clinical Portal gives participating providers the ability to securely look up and retrieve real-time patient medical record information in a view-only screen at the point of care, greatly improving patient safety and care coordination activities.
The Clinical Portal allows providers to look up and retrieve real-time patient medical record information. Each patient’s record is tailored to display available care management data relevant for a provider or care manager at the point of care. For more information on the types of data collected by the HIE, click here. Entry to the record is readily accessible, though audited closely for privacy and security purposes.
Real-time alerting of time-sensitive events like emergency room visits, critical lab results, and hospital discharges make it possible for care managers and other providers following a patient to intervene early and establish the right care plan. Email-based notifications can be configured directly within the Clinical Portal, ensuring that critical patient care events trigger immediate follow-on action.
Within each patient’s medical record is a “Community Services” section that includes available social determinants of health data sent to the HIE from both clinical and non-clinical organizations. The section incorporates data from participating community organizations that are providing non-clinical services that are applicable to clinical conversations, such as non-emergent transportation and housing support.
HealthInfoNet’s HINcontext Application allows providers to receive patients’ medical histories from the statewide HIE while working in context of their electronic health record (EHR) systems. The application has been designed to allow EHR systems to query HealthInfoNet’s HIE database from within existing provider workflows and to return and display the HIE data in a fashion most convenient for both the EHR technology and the provider viewing the information.
