UHIN is pleased to announce that Continuity of Care Documents, CCDs, from Foothill Family Clinic are available in the cHIE Clinical Portal as of July 14, 2016! Foothill Family Clinic is a 38-physician, three-location multispecialty practice that treats an average of 8,000 patients each month. They will automatically send CCDs, also called patient summaries, to the CHIE for all of their patients.
The data will be automatically added to the correct section in the Clinical Portal’s Patient Summary view, and will remain available in the Patient Summary view. Additional details, such as the text of provider notes, may also be available under the “Documents” tab. To view these details, click on the CCD you’d like to view and choose the HTML option.
The Patient Summary view will also display available information from hospitals participating with Quality Health Network in western Colorado and the Arizona Health-e Connection, as well as from Utah Gastroenterology (formerly called Mountain West Gastroenterology). CCDs from Intermountain Healthcare, Lone Peak Hospital, St. Mark’s Hospital, and the Veterans’ Affairs Health Care System can be accessed by clicking on the External Documents tab. We are actively testing with more data sources, and expect to include CCDs from a range of providers in the near future.
CCDs are a user-friendly way to get the latest information on your patients’ health, including problems, medications, allergies, lab results, care plans, procedures, and more. This “snapshot” format makes it easy to see the information you need, when you need it. CCD inclusion is one more way we’re making the CHIE more valuable for you.
