Comments on Stage 3 Meaningful Use Proposed Measures
We have submitted comments to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services as a collaborative effort between the Ohio Health Information Partnership and the Ohio Hospital Association, with stakeholder input from many physician groups and individual hospitals – including children's hospitals, meaningful use field consultants and representatives from the vendor community.
Here are just a few of the recommendations we have made:
It's here: Ohio now has a Community Health Record for physicians.
We're pleased to announce the debut of our Community Health Record -- the latest in technological advances for the CliniSync Health Information Exchange and the state of Ohio.
This new solution allows physicians and other authorized personnel caring for a patient to search for a consenting patient's name and retrieve pertinent medical information from hospitals now participating in CliniSync. Not just a local hospital, not just hospitals in a specific region, but all hospitals connected to the exchange across Ohio, even into bordering Kentucky.
We have 6.5 million unique patient records, and the Community Health Record is now debuting in Portsmouth and Cleveland, with plans to roll it out in West Central Ohio, Dayton and Columbus in June and July. To read more, click here.
