Little Rock, Arkansas- August 2019 The State Health Alliance for Records Exchange (SHARE), Arkansas’ only health information exchange (HIE) is connected to Saline Memorial Health System Specialty Clinics. Saline Memorial Health System Specialty Clinics is a group of primary care, urgent care and multi-specialty care clinics. These clinics are located in the Central Arkansas area. Saline Memorial Health System Specialty Clinics is part of the continued connection of independent and hospital-based practices to connect to the SHARE network.
SHARE aggregates health data from many major health systems across the state of Arkansas. 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.
The Saline Memorial Health System Specialty Clinics locations are sharing data through an interface with their Athena electronic health record (EHR) system, that allows their referral providers to quickly access patient health data in a secure, efficient manner. This includes patient records such as diagnosis, medical history, discharge summaries, social determinants of health (SDOH), lab results, medications, immunizations, vitals and allergies.
The care coordinators at Saline Memorial Health System Specialty Clinics locations are accessing SHAREs’ Virtual Health Record that aggregates patients record outside of their system of EPIC enabling more accurate diagnoses, faster and more effective treatment, and better outcomes for the patient. By having this connection, SHARE is assisting the clinics in meeting the Promoting Interoperability Program (formally Meaningful Use) requirements as well as Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).
SHARE is connected to the following Saline Memorial Health System Specialty Clinics that include primary care, multi-specialty care and urgent care clinics throughout the Northcentral Arkansas. The following Saline Memorial Hospital and clinics are connected to SHARE sending Admission, Discharge and Transfer (ADT) information, Laboratory Results, Radiology Reports, Progress Notes, Discharge Summaries, Vitals, Allergies, Diagnosis and Conditions of their patients in coordination of transitions of care.
The health IT solutions will enable providers to exchange sensitive and critical patient health information through the HIE for improved clinical efficiency and care quality. The EHR-integrated solution is part of the HIE’s efforts to ensure providers have access to relevant health information wherever they need it at the point of care.
