“SHARE has assisted us by identifying emergency department visits and inpatient stays of our patients when they go to other hospitals connected to SHARE.” Carole Neeley, RN, PCMH Lead
“Connectivity to SHARE was seamless and required little effort from our practice.” –Dr. William C. Patton, MD-East Arkansas Children's Clinic-Forrest City
“By providing the ability to exchange information today in a way that adapts to how our care team actually works is critical,” Said Dr. Harold Betton, MD “SHARE is committed to helping our clinic improve care, reduce costs, and protect privacy.”
Cave City Nursing Home is thrilled to be using SHARE's VHR, a web-based portal which provides access to the medical record with just an internet connection! I access the Virtual Health Record to obtain up to the minute lab reports from White River Health System. No more waiting for later in the day faxed results when our physicians need the most current lab values. Our physicians request the lab value and we show current ones. I can easily pull our patient's lab history in the VHR and record it with the current results. In the past I had to pull every chart that was needed for comparison. SHARE connectivity is improving our patient care and is a valuable timesaver for me!
“One of the great examples of participating in SHARE is the Direct Messaging. We are now receiving hospital discharge summaries for our patients into our EMR and best yet, it is automatic and we do not spend countless hours of manpower with tracking discharges. We are receiving 4 hospitals and a number of other healthcare providers. Our next step will be referrals through Direct. Great job!”
We want to thank SHARE for the great attention they have given our facility. All of their staff have been very helpful and a pleasure to work with. All of our hospital-affiliated clinics are now able to save time by getting their reports directly in their EMR using our original interface with SHARE. This process was previously handled via fax and manual data entry. I would encourage clinics and hospitals to get on board and improve patient care through SHARE connectivity.
Quality care requires strong communication and collaboration. At the Psychiatric Research Institute, we know receiving and providing real time patient information through a secure exchange improves behavioral health care outcomes. AR SHARE makes this possible while ensuring patient confidentiality. We need partnerships with physicians, hospitals and community providers to make sure patients receive the best possible care. Together, we can make a difference.
One state that seems to truly have embodied the goals of the State Health Information Exchange (SHIE) Cooperative Agreement program is Arkansas. They look towards the overall bigger picture of the quality and efficiency of health care, and are always seeking ways to increase meaningful exchange, including collaboration with other programs such as payment reform initiatives.
I signed up for Secure Messaging today and was immediately able to save myself time and money by sending and receiving medical records through encrypted email. I no longer have the expense of burning CDs or printing records to fax. Great product!
