|“Through the Health Current portal and real-time alerts, Surprise Fire-Medical obtains follow-up information for patients in our Treat & Refer, Community Paramedicine, and ET3 programs. We also receive alerts on hospital emergency encounters and admissions with the option of receiving batched reports in high-volume categories. Most recently, we started receiving lab test results for potential COVID-19 exposures which helps our crews better prepare.” – Jesus Rivera, Battalion Chief, Surprise EMS|
|“Health Current has enabled us to integrate COVID-19 testing results directly into our EHR. This allows our care team to engage with patients in the most safe and appropriate setting. It also empowers our clinicians to follow up with patients, provide reassurance, and determine if additional resources are required. Sharing COVID-19 data among all healthcare delivery organizations enables us to provide true patient-centric care.” – Michael D. White, MD, MBA, Valleywise Health, EVP, CMO|
|“Of the COVID-19 Alerts we receive from Health Current, we’ve found that roughly 6 percent of them are positives. Working with the HIE, we configured the results in a way to trigger alerting and infectious status with our EHR. This allows our healthcare providers to be better prepared with the necessary PPE, in turn minimizing exposure and potential infection of our staff.” – Craig Norquist, MD, HonorHealth, Chief Medical Information Officer|
|“We have developed a new workflow related to COVID-19 Alerts that is supportive of our staff and clients. The new process makes sure we are aware when a client has been tested for COVID-19 so that we can take action to keep everyone safe. It has brought our staff some peace of mind and confidence during this time. THANK YOU! We appreciate the collaboration with Health Current.” – Megan Lipman, JFCS, VP of Compliance & Quality Management|
|“Thank you, Health Current, for all you are doing in the COVID-19 pandemic … Mercy Care is receiving real time test results on our entire membership, taking that information into our tracking system, and implementing care management assessments and outreaches where appropriate. This is a great stride forward!” – Charlton Wilson, Mercy Care, Chief Medical Officer|
