One connection, many functions
SHARE offers health care providers the following capabilities:
Web- and EHR-based Access: Authorized providers can access patient information by logging into SHARE online or through their EHR (where capable).
Virtual Health Record (VHR): SHARE gathers available patient data from all participating sources to create a single electronic health record known as a VHR. Where the EHR system is capable, users may select data from a patient’s VHR and forward selected results to their EHR.
Patient Health Summary: Provides the ability to create a personal health record for patients through SHARE using a Virtual Health Record (VHR).
Master Patient Index: Providers can identify their patients by a number of unique identifiers.
Patient Information Query: Providers can query patient information including clinical summaries, medication histories and problem lists. Patient data available in SHARE includes:
- Lab results
- Radiology results
- Transcribed reports
- Medication history
- Problem Lists
Patient Reconciliation: Providers can identify patients and retrieve a patient’s health information available through SHARE.
Record Locator Service: Providers can find patient-related data regardless of multiple points of patient care.
Provider Directory: Allows users to locate organizations or individual health service providers with which they want to exchange clinical data.
Access Control: Manages the entry, authentication, and authorization of users and entities, and defines every participant’s access privileges as well as administration of user accounts, privileges, roles and relationships. This ensures only authorized providers or those who have a documented need to view patient information can access SHARE.
Access to Diagnostic Information: Allows providers to access diagnostic information across different sources of care, which will reduce duplicate testing and give health care providers access to the most currently available information.
Single Sign-On: Access SHARE through EHR systems that allow integration, without having to login with a separate username and password.
Subscribe & Notify: Subscribe to receive alerts about their patients and will receive that information. If, for example, a patient is seen in an emergency room, the primary care provider will receive a message about the encounter.
Clinical Messaging: Access and send patient information and authorization requests to patients within their practice, to users in another practice or workgroup, or to other EHR users through SHARE.
