One health system’s journey with a private health information exchange

The University Health System (UHS) hospital is at the center of the healthcare community in San Antonio, Texas, U.S.A., where many ambulatory providers use EHR systems from other vendors. To encourage clinical collaboration, UHS knew that the next step was a private health information exchange (HIE).

In 2014, UHS implemented Allscripts dbMotion™ Solution as its private HIE. In a recent case study and video, Chief Information Officer Bill Phillips describes the organization’s journey:

In August 2014, UHS rolled out dbMotion, the connectivity platform that enables caregivers to access data in disparate clinical information systems. It helps clinicians share information for better coordination of care. “dbMotion is truly a patient safety product,” Philips said. “Immediately when this system came up, we were getting positive feedback.”

“dbMotion was the greatest thing that has happened to us,” UHS Chief Medical Information Officer Alton Powell, M.D., said. “Because as a result of dbMotion, whether I’m in the inpatient or the outpatient, whether I’m on Allscripts or Epic, I now have visibility for everything for that patient.”

 

Editor’s Note: UHS uses Allscripts Sunrise™ as its core clinical solution, Allscripts EPSi™ to integrate financial processes and Allscripts dbMotion™ Solution as its connectivity platform.
