Health systems face challenges in the ability to share vital clinical data with physicians once they leave the hospital environment. More physicians are spending massive amounts of effort, time and money in transitioning from paper charts to electronic medical records (EMRs). As this momentum builds, there is an urgency to provide interoperability between health systems and EMRs, so physicians can access critical health information for clinical decision-making. It is imperative that providers have the right information available at the right time and the right way.
MedVirginia can solve this challenge by offering a Results Routing service that helps hospitals and physicians by pushing external clinical information and test results for facility based services directly into a physician’s EMR. This “push” of clinical data from a hospital provides a more efficient practice workflow in eliminating the printing and scanning of documents into an EMR. This also provides tools for a practice to meet Meaningful Use requirements.
