Health Information Exchange

Your patients’ health data, when and where you need it

SHARE gathers your patients’ clinical data from all participating health care providers to instantly give you a holistic view of their health history, treatment and progress. That’s powerful information that can transform the way you plan, deliver and coordinate health care.

How does SHARE work?

SHARE brings together your patients’ health information from multiple sources to build a more complete patient medical record. It enables separate electronic health record systems (EHR) and other health information technology systems that cannot communicate with one another to securely and seamlessly share patient health information.

The information exchange happens online, in real-time, through a secure connection between your EHR and SHARE. Patient health records from your EHR are pushed into SHARE, where authorized participating providers can access them as needed.

Physicians, specialists, hospitals, labs, pharmacies, long-term care givers and others involved in your patients’ care are also pushing their health records into SHARE.

What patient health data can be exchanged in SHARE?

As the participating provider, you can decide what patient information to exchange in SHARE. The following clinical data can be pushed from your EMR system into SHARE:

  • Clinical Care Summaries
  • Lab Results
  • Discharge Summaries
  • Radiology Reports
  • Medication Histories
  • Referrals
  • Transcribed documents

What about HIPAA and privacy?

Information exchanged through SHARE is secure, protected by state and federal laws, and only used by authorized personnel. SHARE’s privacy policy makes patient participation in SHARE voluntary. This allows your patients to make informed decisions regarding provider accessibility to their personal health information in SHARE. Patients will have the opportunity to opt-out, if they wish, at their first appointment after your facility activates SHARE, and periodically thereafter.
