Little Rock, Arkansas – November, 2019
Arkansas Primary Care and North Little Rock Primary Care & Diagnostic Clinic have connected with the State Health Alliance for Records Exchange (SHARE). SHARE is the only statewide health information exchange (HIE) in Arkansas that facilitates the secure exchange of patient health information among hospitals, physicians, clinicians and other members of the medical community.
Arkansas Primary Care and North Little Rock Primary Care & Diagnostic Clinic is committed to delivering high-quality care in a professional and caring environment to improve the health and well-being of their patients. By connecting with SHARE, Arkansas Primary Care and North Little Rock Primary Care & Diagnostic Clinic expects to further this commitment by exchanging information more efficiently with referring physicians and providing their doctors, nurses and healthcare teams with the patient information they need at the point of care with integrating their EMR system (eCW) with SHARE in the near future.
Additionally, SHARE provides access to 24-hour daily reports on all their patients, regardless of insurance provider, when they are admitted and discharged from the emergency department and inpatient discharges in real-time.
“We are pleased to have Arkansas Primary Care and North Little Rock Primary Care & Diagnostic Clinic connected to SHARE, said Anne Santifer, executive director of SHARE. “This connection helps facilitate the seamless and secure exchange of patient health information with Arkansas health systems, hospitals and physicians. This delivers substantial benefits for our patients, referring physicians and the Arkansas Primary Care and North Little Rock Primary Care & Diagnostic Clinic practices, said Clinic Director Derek Lewis II.”
In Arkansas, where many large and small health systems use disparate EHR systems, this is a particularly important milestone because the single interface to SHARE enables both clinics to access laboratory results, radiology reports, progress notes, discharge summaries from outside hospitals. Dr. Derek Lewis, MD and care team can now view the following patient data through SHARE Interface:
- Admission, Discharge and Transfer Data
- Allergies, Problems, Medications
- Demographic and Insurance Information
- Laboratory Results and Radiology Reports
- Discharge Summaries, Continuity of Care Documents and Progress Notes
SHARE aggregates health data from many major health systems across the state of Arkansas. By doing this the HIE is designed to reduce instances of redundant care by ensuring providers have a complete, holistic view of patient care when making clinical decisions.
