Shared Health Inc. Receives National Health Information Technology Award

November 1, 2007 - Tennessee-based Shared Health Inc., one of the nation’s largest public/private health information exchange (HIE) in the nation, recently received national honors at eHealth Initiative's (eHI) inaugural Improving Healthcare Quality through Information and Information Technology Awards in Washington, D.C.

“The eHI award winners exemplify the principles and strategies identified in eHI’s Blueprint: Building Consensus for Common Action,” said eHI CEO Janet Marchibroda. “These organizations are models for how the use of health IT and health information exchange can support improvements in the quality, safety and efficiency of healthcare.”

Working in direct collaboration with clinicians around the state, Shared Health has been able to focus on the critical aspects of a health information exchange that are important to the clinician community. In addition, Shared Health’s dedicated Clinical Outreach Team ensures that clinicians understand the details of the HIE so it becomes an invaluable tool. Open and consistent communications about security, privacy, benefits, user access, and the opt-out process of Shared Health has been critical to the success of the program.

HIE stresses the use of the Shared Health Clinical Health Record, a secure, electronic health record that maintains a comprehensive view of a patient’s specific medical history. The Shared Health CHR and Shared Health ePrescribe allow multiple clinicians treating the same patient to view that patient’s clinical history and prescribe medications via a secure Web portal, enabling more informed clinical decisions at the point of care.
