Penn Med hospital begins providing data; Crozer newest user of care-team finder service

Expansion of services, membership, and recognition marked month of May 2016 for HealthShare Exchange:

  • CCH data feed now active
    Chester County Hospital, in West Chester, Pa., has gone live with transmission of its admission-discharge-transfer (ADT) data to HSX’s Clinical Data Repository, supporting the Encounter Notification Service. CCH leads other Penn Medicine hospitals where steps are in progress to provide this data feed.
  • Crozer goes live with ACTF
    HSX’s Automated Care Team Finder service (ACTF) uses health plan data to route hospital discharge information to a patient’s primary care provider.  Crozer-Keystone Health System is among the vanguard of HSX members to activate and take advantage of this important service.
  • PD count is now > 9,000
    HSX’s Provider Directory is a database of participating physicians and other healthcare providers with Direct addresses, for secure messaging with other providers. The PD now contains Direct addresses from more than 50 healthcare organizations and entities in HSX’s five-county service area.
  • HSX featured in PhillyBiz “Best of Healthcare”
    In its maiden issue, the new Philly Biz magazine/website cited HealthShare Exchange and its executive director among those setting the future course of healthcare in the region and beyond.
  • New subscription option for ENS subscribers.
    Often when patients are admitted as inpatients coming from the emergency department, the event is considered a transfer rather than an inpatient admission. HSX now offers all Encounter Notification Service subscribers the ability to be notified about these “Transfer” events that signify “Inpatient Admit.”
  • Tandigm and PHMC now part of your regional HIE
    HSX welcomes its newest members ––
