SI-Cerner Users Collaborative No. 39: Memorial Hermann HIE
January 16, 2012, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST
Robert Weeks, Director, Information Systems Division, Memorial Hermann Healthcare System. Memorial Hermann is a leading provider of healthcare in Houston with a strong tradition of enabling exchange of clinical information. With early initiatives focused on enabling affiliated physicians to have electronic access to lab results, radiology reports and other data, Memorial Hermann partnered with Cerner to expand this exchange and created the Memorial Hermann Health Information Exchange (MHiE) in 2011. The MHiE enables connecting providers to contribute continuity of care (CCDs) and other documents into a common repository, available for a physician to reference when their patients present. The MHiE is structured as opt-in – patients must choose to participate – and already has an 80% opt-in rate. MHiE is the unifying clinical exchange for Memorial Hermann and its affiliated physicians, and directly impacts initiatives to improve communication across the continuum, manage a diverse population’s health, and support strategies such as Medical Homes.
