What does it do?
It allows you to simply and securely share data, in a HIPAA compliant manner over the internet, with another provider or care giving organization.
And how does it work?
You can authorize another entity (for example a specialist you refer patients to, a nursing home, an assisted living facility etc.) to see a particular patient's record, and it will be available to them immediately. The Network will automatically send them a username and password to be able to access this/these particular record(s). Any time you give them access to a new record, the Network will automatically email a notification to them so they can log in to see their records.
With an integrated EMR/EHR
If you have an EMR/EHR, and it integrates with the network - sending and receiving referrals, sharing charts, lab results and other clinical data is literally a click away! You will have one touch ability to accomplish all this with no effort on your part.
Stand-alone Gateway - With a non-integrated EMR/EHR
If you have an EMR/EHR, and it does not integrate with our network - you can still, in many cases, export and import data into a Gateway, that you will have put in place in your practice/location. This Gateway will allow you to accomplish exactly the same functions once the data is in the Gateway. All chart sharing and notifications will work the same way.
Stand-alone Gateway - With no EMR/EHR at all
Even if you are completely on paper, with a Gateway in your office, you can scan and add charts to the Gateway to make it shareable on the network. You can still reap the benefits of remote access to your charts by yourself and others you give access to.
Why use our solution?
One of the key criteria in meeting Meaningful Use requirements as mandated by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) is the use of Health Information Technology to share clinical data with other healthcare entities. The stimulus requirements are not merely a question of waving a receipt for an EMR, but to actually prove meaningful use. We can help you meet this criteria quickly and cost effectively.
