Read about SHARE and the exciting progress Arkansas hospitals are making toward exchanging electronic health records in an Arkansas Business article published today. Hospitals Move Toward Electronic Records Exchange
We are pleased to announce that Jefferson Regional Medical Center (JRMC) in Pine Bluff has signed a SHARE participation agreement and is the third hospital to join SHARE. JRMC is a 471-bed acute care hospital with 11 off-campus clinics and affiliated centers, and is the largest regional hospital system to join the Arkansas health information exchange (HIE).
JRMC will begin the process of connecting its electronic health record (EHR) system to SHARE and should begin exchanging patient health information through SHARE within the coming months.
The statewide HIE will allow JRMC health care providers to electronically access and share patient health information with University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) in Little Rock, North Arkansas Regional Medical Center (NARMC) in Harrison, and other providers that will use SHARE.
