Transition of Care Longitudinal Record
Health information exchange facilitates the seamless and effective handoff of clinical information between healthcare providers during care transitions. For example, a patient visits her primary care provider in Seldovia for a routine visit. The patient is referred by the PCP to a specialist in Homer for a consultation. The specialist diagnoses a condition requiring surgery. The patient is subsequently admitted to South Peninsula Hospital for surgery with the specialist. The patient then returns for follow up care by the PCP in Seldovia. In each of the care transitions mentioned, the HIE’s longitudinal care record improves the timeliness, accuracy, quality and completeness of patient data.
