Madison WI Emergency and Urgent Care HIE Saves Time and Money
January 26, 2011 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST
Dave Lundal, V.P. & Regional CIO, SSM Integrated Health Technologies, SSM Health Care of Wisconsin, and Annette Fox, Director of Clinical Systems, Dean Health System and SSM of Wisconsin, describe a pilot project among area hospital emergency services and urgent cares. Dean Clinic, Group Health Cooperative, Meriter Hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital, and UW Health now have electronic access to vital information from patients’ electronic medical records – when it’s needed most, no matter what hospital or urgent care they visit – provided patients consent. The clinical summary provides an overview of the patient including Allergies, Medications, Immunizations, Clinic and Hospital Visits, Medical, Surgical, Family and Social History, Lab results, Medical imaging and EKG results and Procedures. Dave and Annette describe the collaboration effort, implementation challenges, benefits to the patient and how this factors into SSM/Dean Clinic reform and Meaningful Use strategies.
