PatientClick's electronic health information exchange (HIE), facilitates interoperability and is critical in connecting various providers and patients. Certified to use both Continuity of Care Document (CCD) and Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) standards PatientClick is able to securely exchange patient health information within the medical community.
"Electronic health information exchange (HIE) allows doctors, nurses, pharmacists, other health care providers and patients to appropriately access and securely share a patient’s vital medical information electronically—improving the speed, quality, safety and cost of patient care."
"Appropriate, timely sharing of vital patient information can better inform decision making at the point of care and allow providers to
- Avoid read omissions
- Avoid medication errors
- Improve diagnoses
- Decrease duplicate testing
If a practice has successfully incorporated faxing patient information into their business process flow, they might question why they should transition to electronic health information exchange. Many benefits exist with information exchange regardless of the means of which is it transferred. However, the value of electronically exchanging is the standardization of data. Once standardized, the data transferred can seamlessly integrate into the recipients' Electronic Health Record (EHR), further improving patient care."
