The EMHS's IS department in collaboration with EMHC have identified three priority projects currently under development. The following projects, once complete, will improve EMHC's interoperability and HIE capabilities:
Interface between Phillips Telehealth and McKesson Horizon EHR: EMHC is working on an interface between Phillips telehealth and the McKesson EHR so staff can access the patient's clinical information from a single source rather than two separate systems. Currently having issues with the different segments of HL7 being transmitted between systems. Once the interface is complete, staff will have access to the telehealth data transmitted from the patient home in the EMHC EHR.
Physician Portal to McKesson Horizon HomeCare: EMHC is completing a project to set up a physician portal so physicians, medical assistants, or care managers can log into the Home Care EHR. In May 2013, this project was in the demonstration phase. Primary care clinicians will have access to telehealth data (including results and trending), other clinical data in the home care record, and perform functions like write and sign the home care POC as well as other orders.
Home Health Lab Data to HIE: The IT department is working on an interface to send home health care lab results to HIN.
