Through Healthix, The Institute for Family Health is able to access patient data that is actionable, relevant and easily accessible. This data is available at a provider’s fingertips and helps impact patient care.
Here’s how the partnership works: The Institute cares for men, women, children and families regardless of their ability to pay. When a patient arrives in the ER, or is admitted to the hospital, Healthix provides a Clinical Alert into the Institute’s EMR. This alert notifies the physician regarding the patient — right then and there.
“When I have a complex patient with HIV, mental illness or on dialysis, who can’t explain what’s going on with their health, I simply contact the ER and use the information in Healthix to communicate the patient’s history and provide care.”
— Sarah C. Nosal, MD, Chief Medical Director
Healthix Clinical Alerts are critical for the Institute’s complex patients. The alert allows the Institute’s clinician to reach out in real-time and speak with ER staff. This ensures essential information is conveyed clinician to clinician.
The Institute’s clinician may also contact the patient to arrange an office visit and follow-up. The alert contains important data on the patient’s condition such as diagnoses, procedures, labs, radiology tests and other vital information.Download PDF
