Tue, 02/26/2019 - 08:54 -- Whitney Mayo

Located in El Dorado, Arkansas, Medical Center of South Arkansas is dedicated to providing advanced healthcare in South Arkansas through inpatient and outpatient services as well as community outreach. Medical Center of South Arkansas currently is connected to SHARE sending admissions, discharges and transfers (ADTs) that includes Diagnosis, Allergies and Vitals.

To further continued health information exchange with SHARE they will start integration with all of their Medical Center of South Arkansas, South Arkansas Physicians Services (SAPS) medical group clinics. Integrating their EMR systems will allow for laboratory results, radiology reports, discharge summaries from all of SAPS clinics to be shared with the patients’ healthcare teams throughout South Arkansas.

SAPS will also be able to view the SHARE Virtual Health Record (VHR) which displays information as a traditional clinical chart, with tabs to separate patient information into groups for easy chart review. SHARE retrieves and shows all available data for a selected patient gathered from all participants within SHARE to enable a single, consolidated view of a patient’s health history.

SAPS providers and care coordinators will be able to view the following patient data through SHARE VHR if they have been seen outside of Medical Center of South Arkansas clinics, as long as the healthcare facilities are connected to SHARE, Arkansas’ only Statewide Health Information Exchange:

  • Admission, Discharge and Transfer reports
  • Allergies, Problems, Medications
  • Demographic and Insurance information
  • Laboratory results
  • Radiology reports, image links
  • Discharge Summaries
