SHARE is working to facilitate Cabot Medical Care automated Immunization submissions to Arkansas WebIZ.
Little Rock, Arkansas —August 2019 Beginning in fall of 2018, SHARE and Cabot Medical Care has worked together to bring a new feature to their clinic. They will soon be able to automatically submit immunization records to the Arkansas Immunization Information System (WEBIZ) through SHARE, Arkansas’ only statewide health information exchange (HIE).
SHARE has been connected to WEBIZ for the last few years, bringing immunization information to providers treating patients in 75 counties of Arkansas that make up our service area. WEBIZ was built to house complete, accurate, secure, real-time immunization records for the state, providers can access these records when treating their patients to have a comprehensive understanding of their health needs through SHARE. It was the natural connection to assist Cabot Medical Care, who is already contributing data to the HIE, to connect to WEBIZ through SHARE.
By implementing this direct connection, SHARE and Cabot Medical Care is eliminating the need for manual and duplicate entry, saving their providers and nurses time by automating a previously tedious task. Cabot Medical Care is part of one of central Arkansas’ largest family practice group, and through this advancement, their providers, their staff and their patients will reap the benefits.
Electronic access to a patient’s results gives physicians and other health care providers in the patients’ chain of health care providers the results they need. With the connection to their eMDs electronic medical record (EMR), Cabot Medical Care is contributing diagnosis, medications, procedures, vitals, demographics and immunizations of their patients to the HIE for their referral partners to access.
SHARE is also routing the Cabot Medical Care provider’s the results of their patients’ lab results, diagnosis, discharge summaries, medications from other facilities that are on a different EMR system into the patient’s chart in their eMDs system. This is also critical in their walk-in sick clinics that is open late and on Saturdays. This aids in making proper diagnoses, reduces delays in treatment, and eliminates redundant testing if a patient has been referred to another healthcare provider. Additionally, SHARE provides access to 24-hour daily reports notifying the primary care clinic providers and care coordinators when their Arkansas Medicaid patients are admitted and discharged from the emergency department and inpatient discharges in real time.
Not all technology improves patient care–that’s why SHARE focuses on providing only the data Cabot Medical Care needs and the right tools to integrate with your workflow and systems, meaning they save time and can focus on what matters most…the patient!
