As 2013 draws to a close, we are taking this opportunity to reflect on a year of tremendous progress made in the implementation of the statewide health information exchange. These are the major milestones we've achieved thanks to the efforts of our OHIT staff, vendor partnerships and support of the health care community:
Delta Regional Authority, Arkansas Office of Health Information Technology awards to link critical access hospitals to state system
Chairman Masingill: “Arkansas’ rural communities will be better connected to cutting-edge and cost-effective health care.”
Rural communities throughout the state of Arkansas will have the opportunity to receive funding to connect their hospitals to the state’s electronic health records database, Delta Regional Authority Federal Co-Chairman Chris Masingill and Office of Health Information Technology Director Ray Scott announced today.
We are pleased to welcome the following new participants to SHARE:
Health care providers may question why they should partcipate in a Health Information Exchange (HIE) when they already use an EHR system that is capable of sharing patient data with other providers. But what does it actually take for that EMR/EHR system to exchange data with the myriad hospitals, specialists, labs, pharmacies, public health registries and other organizations that need it?
In the spirit of National Health IT Week, we've teamed up with Get Real Health and produced a fun infographic that shows what Health Information Exchanges (HIEs) are and why they're important to providers and patients alike.
Please help spread the word about HIEs like SHARE by tweeting, sharing and forwarding this to your colleagues, friends and anyone who may not know about HIEs.
As a partner in the advancement of health information technology to help improve healthcare, SHARE is joining approximately 200 public and private sector organizations to participate in the 8th Annual National Health IT Week (September 16-20, 2013). National Health IT Week 2013 is the premier event offering all healthcare stakeholders an opportunity to unite under one banner, expressing the benefits that health information technology (IT) brings to U.S. healthcare. “One Voice, One Vision.”
Say hello to the new SHARE! We are excited to announce the launch of a fresh new SHARE logo and website. The new branding marks a season of explosive growth as we have successfully moved from Phase I into Phase II of the statewide health information exchange (HIE) and are currently connecting more than 100 health care entities to SHARE.
