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
