Rural healthcare providers are vital members of the care community in Colorado – but their utilization of health information exchange (HIE) has been historically low. It can be difficult to incorporate HIE projects into over-burdened IT departments – and cost can be a significant barrier.
How law enforcement, organ donation, health plans and emergency services use CORHIO’s HIE tools for the shared goal of better serving their respective populations.
You can access recent care summaries on your patients from Kaiser Permanente, Department of Defense, Veteran’s Administration and Quality Health Network.
This includes care summary documents for patients affiliated with any VA healthcare facility in the United States.
The Colorado Care Connections Program, a partnership between CORHIO and the Department of Healthcare Financing and Policy (HCPF) has been expanded, making funds available to a large number of organizations to participate in the health information exchange.
CORHIO strives to continually improve the stability and integrity of data in the CORHIO Health Information Exchange. We regularly review the data in our network and our processes to ensure our high quality standards are being met.
CORHIO participants have access to the state’s largest patient data repository of its kind. Accessed through CORHIO’s web portal PatientCare 360 or as results delivered right to your electronic health record system, our data is sent from 60 hospitals, 4 major laboratories and 12 imaging centers.
Dr. Jeanine Compesi, physician at Kaiser Permanente, practices hospital medicine always outside the “walls” of Kaiser Permanente, as the health plan does not have its own hospital. Patients are often transferred from another care setting to one in which the Kaiser Permanente physician will be taking care of them, so sometimes getting accurate information on the patient can be tricky.
Penrose Hospital, located in the heart of Colorado Springs and part of Centura Health, has participated in the CORHIO health information exchange (HIE) since 2011. The hospital has a real-time, electronic connection to the CORHIO network, which allows community healthcare providers to access information on shared patients when coordinated care is delivered in outpatient settings such as physician offices and skilled nursing centers. In March of 2014, Penrose Hospital expanded its participation with CORHIO by implementing HIE patient query access in the Emergency Department (ED).
For more than 30 years, Colorado Springs Pulmonary Consultants (CSPC) has been serving patients across southern Colorado. Located on the Penrose Hospital campus, the practice is comprised of six board-certified pulmonary physicians and a certified nurse practitioner. The practice provides state-of-art care, which includes the use of electronic health records (EHRs) and health information exchange (HIE). CSPC connected to the CORHIO HIE in early 2012 and receives their patients' clinical results directly into their Greenway EHR system.
Rocky Mountain Youth Clinics (RMYC) provides healthcare to more than 22,000 children in schools, hospitals, clinics and mobile units across Colorado. RMYC's commitment to high-quality care is demonstrated through a variety of initiatives, including the use of electronic medical records and health information exchange, which help enhance clinical decision-making and care coordination. The providers and staff at RMYC go above and beyond for the children and families they serve. For example, they give food bags to thousands of families in need every year and hand out about 9,000 books each year through the Reach Out and Read program.
