Patient Lookup - PatientCare 360®
When your organization is accepting a new patient from another facility – or when your organization is transferring a patient elsewhere, communication about the patient’s needs is crucial. CORHIO’s PatientCare 360 is a secure web-based portal that many long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) organizations rely on to get real-time patient information to better coordinate care. It saves valuable time spent making phone calls and tracking down information, and helps avoid patient safety issues that result from a lack of patient information.
Funding Available for Long-Term and Post-Acute Care Providers
Eligibility for the Colorado Care Connections Program, which offers funding for Colorado providers to join the health information exchange or increase their current participation, has been expanded. If your organization has a referral relationship with a Meaningful Use eligible provider or hospital, you are now eligible to receive this funding. Please contact CORHIO today at 720-285-3200 or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
Community Health Record
PatientCare 360 gives you access to the Community Health Record, where qualified providers can search for and view a patient's consolidated, longitudinal health record. It allows you to look up a patient and view his/her recent lab results, medical images, hospital ADTs, face sheets, treatment plans and more. This is a web-based service, so no electronic health record (EHR) system is needed, though it may be used in combination with an EHR if you have one.

Create Care Summary Documents
Within PatientCare 360, you can generate Continuity of Care Documents (CCDs), which are care summaries providers can use to share patient clinical information provided by CORHIO data senders. CCDs created using PatientCare 360 will include patient demographics and user-selected clinical data. Once generated, CCDs can be printed or downloaded as an electronic file (such as a PDF) to share with providers or saved into the patient’s record.
Benefits of PatientCare 360:
- Reduced staff time spent retrieving patient medical records from hospitals and labs
- Improved clinical decision making and care coordination with accurate, real-time data
- Improved patient satisfaction because staff can better anticipate and accommodate care needs
- Decreased costs associated with faxing and mailing patient records; more efficient use of staff resources
What our participants are saying:
“Where we use CORHIO frequently is when one of our residents goes to the hospital – either for an emergency room trip or an in-patient procedure. It’s most helpful when we have a resident who may be confused or isn’t able to tell us what happened while they were at the hospital. If it’s an ER trip, the documentation is real-time so I can look up the patient and know exactly what happened, what labwork was done, and all those results so that I am that much better prepared the minute they return.”
