TLC Pediatrics Administering Better Care in Conway by Collaborating with SHARE

SHARE is facilitating TLC Pediatrics automated immunization submissions to Arkansas WebIZ.

Little Rock, Arkansas ---July 2019 SHARE has been connected to the Arkansas Immunization Registry (WEBIZ) for the last few years, bringing immunization information to providers treating patients in all 75 counties of Arkansas that make up our service area. WEBIZ was built to house complete, accurate, secure, real-time immunization records for the state, providers can access these records when treating their patients to have a comprehensive understanding of their health needs through SHARE.

SHARE and TLC Pediatrics have worked together to bring this new feature to their clinic. They are now able to automatically submit immunization records to the Arkansas Immunization Information System (WEBIZ) through SHARE, the only statewide health information exchange (HIE).

By implementing this direct connection, SHARE and TLC Pediatrics are eliminating the need for manual and duplicate entry, saving their pediatricians, nurses and care team time by automating a previously tedious task.

Electronic access to a patient’s results gives physicians and other healthcare providers in the patients’ chain of healthcare providers the results they need. With the connection to their eMDs electronic medical record (EMR), TLC Pediatrics is currently contributing a patients’ diagnosis, medications, procedures, vitals, demographics and immunizations of their patients to the HIE for their referral partners to access.

SHARE is also routing the TLC Pediatrics pediatricians the results of their patients’ such as lab results, diagnosis, discharge summaries, medications from other facilities that are on a different

EMR system into the patient’s chart in their eMDs system. This aids in making proper diagnoses, reduces delays in treatment, and eliminates redundant testing if a patient has been referred to another healthcare provider.

Additionally, SHARE provides access to 24-hour daily reports notifying the pediatricians and care coordinators when their Arkansas Medicaid patients are admitted and discharged from the emergency department and inpatient discharges in real time.
