IU Health Pilot to Route IHIE Data into the EMR
January 25, 2017, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST
Jason T. Schaffer, MD FAAEM, Assistant Clinical Professor of Emergency Medicine, Director of the Division of Informatics, IU Health Methodist Hospital, IU Department of Emergency Medicine, and Keith Kelley, VP Solution Delivery, Indiana Health Information Exchange. The Indiana Health Information Exchange (IHIE) has delivered community-wide clinical results into physician office EMR systems for years, and nearly 6,000 physicians across Indiana receive their results into their EMR. Recently, IU Health sought an enhanced integration between IHIE and Cerner to enable them to route results directly to the patient’s chart and to the flowsheet in Cerner. For this project, IHIE added LOINC, NPI, and the IU Health MRN to the results. The community-wide data is integrated with the IU Health data to streamline workflow and improve clinical decisions. IU Health recently went live with a small group of physicians with plans to roll it out to over 6,500 physicians later this year. Dr. Schaffer and Keith discuss this program, how it’s working and lessons learned along the way.
