Summer is here and UHIN has already been cookin’ in 2021. We’ve made some big new CHIE connections, launched a new partnership with three other healthcare organizations, opened registration for the Provider Education Summit that is coming up in August, and much more. Read on to see what’s been happening this quarter!

The hottest news and updates so far:

1

TestUtah Labs and Intermountain’s new Spanish Fork Hospital are now connected to the CHIE as primary data sources! TestUtah Labs are sending COVID-19 Lab Results to UHIN from the State, allowing us to alert providers when one of their patients has a new COVID test. The new Spanish Fork Hospital has been sending ADTs and CCDs since late April, adding to our ever-growing list of clinical data sources. Also, Dixie Regional Medical Center has changed its name to St. George Regional Hospital, which will be reflected in data connections. Learn more about Alerts here: CHIE Alerts
