St. Luke’s University Health Network’s health information exchange (HIE) organization, eVantageHealth, has elected to partner with the PA eHealth Partnership Authority as a pilot in the authority’s network of community shared services. The Authority aims to improve health care delivery and outcomes by enabling the secure exchange of health information.
St. Luke’s eVantageHealth organization believes the connectivity to the State’s network will help to centralize patient demographic management, improve awareness of clinical data sharing, and unify consent management processes at disparate health care entities. Additionally, eVantageHealth has enabled easy access to medical records from multiple settings, by offering a web application that can quickly find clinical records associated with a patient.
