eClinicalWorks enables free interoperability for any hospital using IHE standards

eClinicalWorks is now offering free interoperability for any of its client hospitals that utilize Integrating Healthcare Enterprise data-exchange standards, enabling them to exchange data with systems using Cerner, Epic, McKesson, Meditech or Siemens EHR.

Eligible hospitals should be able to view patient data, including discharge summaries, Clinical Document Architecture data and additional codified information in their EHR without any manual intervention.

"Children's National Health System is invested in integrating the essential health information of children throughout the region," Brian Jacobs, MD, vice president, CMIO and CIO at Washington, D.C.-based Children's National Medical Center, which has eClinicalWorks integrated with Cerner, said in a statement. "Ensuring the best health and healthcare for children requires sharing important health data with providers, patients and families with a need to know. This is critical to ensuring the most informed diagnostic and treatment decisions and high quality health and healthcare for the children and families who entrust their wellbeing to us."

In addition to seamlessly integrated patient data, hospitals are able to receive alerts and notifications to ease patient care transition between settings.
