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
If your organization has a referral relationship with a Meaningful Use eligible provider or hospital, you are now eligible to receive funding through the Colorado Care Connections Program to join the CORHIO Health Information Exchange. 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, 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.
New for 2021: Community Care Summaries
CORHIO has continuously improved PatientCare 360 over the years and now we're proud to announce that Community Care Summaries have been added as a PatientCare 360 feature. Community Care Summaries give healthcare professionals access to a new stream of useful patient data. The summaries are available to physician practices and other PatientCare 360 users at no additional cost.
In short, Community Care Summaries are individual care summaries from a single sender (commonly known as "encounter summaries" from community providers). PatientCare 360 users can now query these summaries from community providers and retrieve a consolidated 12-month view of patient encounters from those participating in the CORHIO HIE.
Learn more about Community Care Summaries in this flyer and how to access the summaries in this quick reference guide.
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.”
