Little Rock, Arkansas – June, 2019          

Community Physicians Group (CPG), a large group of nine practices, throughout Northwest Arkansas and Northeast Oklahoma, have connected with the State Health Alliance for Records Exchange (SHARE). SHARE is the only statewide health information exchange (HIE) in Arkansas that facilitates the secure exchange of patient health information among hospitals, physicians, clinicians and other members of the medical community.

Community Physicians Group is committed to delivering high-quality care in a professional and caring environment to improve the health and well-being of their patients. By connecting with SHARE, Community Physicians Group expects to further this commitment by exchanging information more efficiently with referring physicians and providing their doctors, nurses and healthcare teams with the patient information they need at the point of care.

CPGs’ nine practice locations are now live with SHARE, which features a robust patient search functionality that lets providers quickly, query and response mechanism, access patient health data from hospitals, physician practices, state health systems and more. This includes records such as continuity of care documents (CCDs), medical history, previous diagnoses, lab tests, medications and allergies.

Through this integration with their eClinicalWorks (eCW) EMR system, CPG queries SHARE for any patient data outside of their local EMR environment using xds.b protocol. Additionally, SHARE provides access to 24 hour daily reports on all of their patients, regardless of insurance provider, when they are admitted and discharged from the emergency department and inpatient discharges in real-time.

Community Physicians Group (CPG) locations include the following:

“We are pleased to welcome Community Physicians Group, one of the Arkansas and Oklahoma’s leading practices, to SHARE,” said Anne Santifer, executive director of SHARE. “This connection helps facilitate the seamless and secure exchange of patient health information with Arkansas and Oklahoma’s health systems, hospitals and physicians. This delivers substantial benefits for patients, referring physicians and the CPG practices,” said Santifer.
