About the Event
Do you often order duplicate tests? Do you find out too late a patient was high-risk and admitted to the emergency room? Do you spend more time gathering and searching for crucial patient data than you do providing care? These are just a few ways that costs go up, critical time is wasted, patient care is compromised, and the healthcare system continues to stagnate.
Health information exchanges help facilitate coordinated patient care, reduce duplicative treatments, and avoid costly mistakes. They improve quality and safety of patient care, eliminate unnecessary paperwork and redundant testing, improve public health reporting and monitoring, facilitates deployment of emerging technology and health care services and provides a basic level of interoperability among EHRs maintained by individual physicians and organizations.
HealtheConnect is Alaska's Health Information Exchange (HIE) offering services that help you share and receive important patient health information. They connect hospitals, health systems, payers, patients, private practices, and other members of the healthcare ecosystem.
Join Kendra Sticka, PhD, Carlin Evanoff, PA-C, and Mary Eckart, PA-C from HealtheConnect at this webinar where you will learn about:
- Point of Care Tools and Functionality
- Capacity as a Health Data Utility
- Using the HIE to Improve Health Outcomes
