  • CHI St. Vincent hospital in Hot Springs expands connection with SHARE to include Continuity of Care Documents (CCDs)
  • 25+ specialty and primary care clinics expand connections to seamlessly deliver patient health information (laboratory results, vitals, allergies, progress notes, radiology reports and discharge summaries) across Garland County and another fifteen counties in Arkansas.

Little Rock, Arkansas –September 2019 The State Health Alliance for Records Exchange (SHARE) is excited to announce a ground-breaking partnership that will enable more efficient health care services for patients across rural Arkansas. SHARE is Arkansas’ only health information exchange (HIE).  This partnership expands connections to CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs by exchanging important information such as lab results, updated patient records and demographic information. This integration with SHARE ensures every care provider in a patient’s chain of care has consistent and current information, and that their records are more secure and accessible.

Enhancing the connection with CHI St. Vincent hospital and clinics in Hot Springs to the statewide HIE network will include bi-directional data exchange, health care providers participating in the clinically integrated network and referral partnerships will have faster and more complete access to their patient’s most critical health information. The enhanced information access will improve patient’s care coordination, reduce treatment delays, eliminate unnecessary testing and allow care providers to make more targeted diagnoses and treatment recommendations.

SHARE provides CHI St. Vincent hospital in Hot Springs with data to enable enhanced 30-day readmission event notifications, as well as 24-hour daily reports when their primary care practice Medicaid patients are admitted and discharged from the emergency department or have an inpatient discharge. This collaboration is to improve population health analysis, patient outcomes and success with health care quality initiatives such as accountable care, promoting interoperability (formally known as meaningful use), clinically integrated networks, MIPS/MACRA and medical home programs.

“CHI St. Vincent is among the most ambitious health care systems in the state — they are implementing state-of-the-art technology that will significantly improve collaboration among providers in their area. Ultimately, this will improve patient outcomes and potentially reduce overall health care costs for everyone” said Justin Villines, HIT Policy Integrator at SHARE.

CHI St. Vincent continues to remain committed to delivering the highest quality of care for patients and the communities it serves while simultaneously driving efficiencies to address the challenges facing health care providers and ensuring a sustainable future for its healing ministry in Arkansas.
