2019 Best Practice Awards Submission for HIE/ADT Implementation
The goal was to automate data flow containing valuable quality and Admission Discharge Transfer data for all patients. In order to accomplish this goal, the identified need was to develop a process by using a reliable Health Information Exchange system that could send data from the ambulatory Electronic Medical Record, Athena. The HIE/ADT Implementation took place in 2016 to 2017. Goals have been met to capture all the data elements needed and transmit the data through an automated process. The ADT information has also greatly improved identification of patients utilizing ED and IP services in real time.
