Efficient Exchange of Data Improves Alternate Care Site Patient Transfers Increasing Capacity for COVID-19 Surge
Paso Del Norte Health Information Exchange (PHIX) and Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) sought to improve data exchange to support safe, effective transfer of patients to alternative care sites. PHIX and HCA leveraged the Health Catalyst Interoperability Suite to provide clinicians a comprehensive view of a patient’s clinical history. Clinicians now have immediate access to the critical patient data required for a safe, efficient patient transfer.
- Nearly 300 patients transferred to the alternative care site, increasing hospital capacity.
- Hundreds of hours of burdensome manual data processing avoided in just two weeks—thousands of work hours annually.
- Valuable clinician time directed back to patient care—imperative for an effective COVID-19 surge response.
