Today, eClinicalWorks announced that its customers can now integrate with both CommonWell Health Alliance and Carequality Interoperability Framework through a self-service option in the latest version of eClinicalWorks EHR. With this integration, providers can experience the seamless real-time data transfer between disparate systems, while also having access to select a global consent model, view available connections, and register and get connected to the Interoperability Hub. More than 400 health systems have connected already, presenting a tremendous opportunity for organizations to connect to acute-care sites across the nation.
The self-activation module allows users to select a global consent model, view available connections, and register and get connected to the Interoperability Hub. Patient data retrieval is tightly integrated into eClinicalWorks EHR workflows. Once organizations establish network links per patient, eClinicalWorks has automated the clinical data retrieval from external systems to be fetched and rendered in the Progress Note upon patient arrival. All of this can be achieved with no manual intervention from eClinicalWorks, making onboarding quick and simple.
“The self-service module for activating interoperability worked quite wonderfully for us,” said Dr. Renuka Boyapalli, an independent Endocrinologist in Torrance, California, and affiliated with multiple hospitals in the area. “We were already live on CommonWell, but we do have some patients who go to other hospitals in the area that use Epic. We activated Carequality, and within minutes we were able to retrieve CCDAs from the University of California, Los Angeles on a few of our patients. I commend eClinicalWorks for simplifying health information exchange for small independent physician groups like ours.”
