SHARE and Cabot Emergency Hospital Partner to Improve Patient Care and Efficiency
Emergency Room Hospital Joins Health Information Exchange Network
Little Rock – July 19, 2021 – The State Health Alliance for Records Exchange (SHARE) announced that Cabot Emergency Hospital now has access to secure data in SHARE’s health information exchange (HIE), that is statewide for the State of Arkansas.
The data exchange service will give Cabot Emergency Hospital, which is Arkansas's first emergency focused specialty-hospital, featuring board-certified physicians with over 130 years of experience, secure access to important information such as lab results, updated patient records and demographic information. This is extremely valuable in a time of emergency for their patients and their families. This ensures every care provider in a patient’s chain of care has consistent and current information, and that their records are more secure and accessible than with paper files sent via fax.
Cabot Emergency Hospital is now sending Admission, Discharge and Transfers (ADT) and continuity of care documents (CCDs) to SHARE to assist in continuity of care for their patients.
“With access to the SHARE exchange, we’ll see the big picture with our patients. If they’ve been to another hospital or seen a specialist since their last visit, updated test results and notes will be right there in their records,” said Nicole Torres, Chief Nursing Officer. “Patients won’t have to worry about remembering every detail for their follow-up primary care visit because their doctors will have all the information they need.”
As the first specialty-hospital in the state of Arkansas, Cabot Emergency Hospital offers both inpatient and outpatient services centered around the patient experience. Their facility features cutting edge technology including bedside ultrasound, digital radiology, CT scan, MRI, and a comprehensive clinical laboratory. Cabot Emergency Hospital joins other major health care providers in Arkansas in connecting to the SHARE network.
SHARE Policy Director, Justin Villines cited the partnership as the latest example of both groups’ innovation to improve patient outcomes by providing fast, secure communication among health care providers. “Care providers in our network enjoy seamless access to patients’ health data. Patients know their information is secure and available to their primary care doctors, specialists and hospitals, so they don’t have to undergo unnecessary tests or worry that something will get lost in translation from one care provider to another,” Villines said.

For Immediate Release
Little Rock, Arkansas. – July 9, 2021 –
SHARE, the State Health Alliance for Records Exchange, recently announced that Arkansas Surgical Hospital has successfully connected to its health information exchange (HIE) network. Arkansas’ statewide health information exchange and Arkansas Surgical Hospital, a physician-owned hospital, now offer patients and physicians with centralized medical information.
The connection of Arkansas Surgical Hospital’s MEDHOST electronic medical record system with SHARE’s HIE greatly expands its capabilities to coordinate patient care quickly and efficiently with community providers throughout Arkansas. When a patient is hospitalized for orthopedic and spine surgery, or has a medical test performed at the Arkansas Surgical Hospital, important health information is electronically recorded and automatically available to the patient’s other care providers on the SHARE network. This can include laboratory results (including COVID-19), radiology results, transcription notes and vital information from admission and discharge.
This immediate communication will help the patient’s care team better address his or her medical needs, which can prevent repeat hospitalizations and redundant testing.
“Arkansas Surgical Hospital is excited to be a part of the SHARE network. Their vast health information system will eventually allow our patients to connect with the resources that they need,” says Trevor Bates, CIO, Arkansas Surgical Hospital. “A core tenet of our mission is to achieve the best outcomes for our patients, and we are confident that this partnership advances that priority.”
