SHARE attends the Arkansas Senior Expo
Over 500 Arkansan baby boomers and seniors ages 55 and up made their way to the state house convention center in downtown Little Rock for the Senior Expo held on Oct. 21, 2017. This event is centered around health care, wellness, as well as health products and services. The State Health Alliance for Records Exchange (SHARE) team was out front and center informing participants on how they can benefit from SHARE services.
Every year hundreds of seniors look forward to this event. Arkansans that attend this event not only gain great knowledge about healthcare they are able to make new friends and have fun. This event is sponsored by The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) and The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
The State Health Alliance for Records Exchange (SHARE) is a secure, electronic system that allows authorized health care providers, health services professionals and public health authorities in Arkansas to exchange accurate patient medical information in real time. The Arkansas Office of Health Information Technology (OHIT), created by Act 891 of 2011, has implemented SHARE in a series of phases, beginning with Secure Messaging to help providers meet meaningful use requirements, and a fully-functional health information exchange (HIE) that gives health care providers access to hospital discharge summaries, lab results, immunization records and other vital information.
