UHIN is delighted to announce that it is now connected with HealtHIE Nevada the health information exchange serving the people of Nevada! This is the latest connection in the multi-state Patient Centered Data Home™ (PCDH). Through the PCDH, Admit / Discharge / Transfer (ADT) notifications will be sent to those participating Utah providers for their consented patients experiencing a medical encounter in Nevada. Conversely ADT notifications for consented Nevadans receiving medical care in Utah also will be sent to the primary care physician back home.
In accordance with their community requirements, all patients receiving medical care in Nevada must sign a consent form to have their records shared. Patients may sign the consent form at their participating provider office or clinic. A list of participating organizations is available at http://healthienevada.org/how-do-i-sign-up/.
Additionally, through its connection with UHIN, HealtHIE Nevada will be able to exchange ADTs with the other HIES across the West participating in the PCDH. This expansion of the PCDH helps to ensure that vital health records follow the patient no matter where they receive care throughout the region.
To sign up for out-of-state ADTs, please contact your Member Relations Team Rep.
