Scattered information wastes provider and staff time, causes unnecessary duplicate tests and procedures, and may contribute to medical errors.
Patients can see multiple providers and may not recall important details of their medical history. Records are often stored at different healthcare organizations and frequently are not shared. This is where the Clinical Portal helps.
Healthcare professionals can use the cHIE Clinical Portal to quickly and securely locate their patients’ information from other sites of care. More complete information leads to better coordination across care teams, improved care quality, and less time and expense associated with record searches. The Clinical Portal includes records from over 400 clinics and more than 80 hospitals in Utah and neighboring states, three major labs, and Utah Medicaid’s medication history.
The Clinical Portal organizes information into easily-searchable categories. Records available include problems, allergies, medications, test results, procedures, and discharge summaries.
