Emergency Department

Improving Outcomes in the Emergency Department

HealtHIE Nevada has partnered with Collective Medical Technologies to bring the EDie® Care Coordination Initiative to Nevada. The collaboration will help local health care facilities and providers care for complex, high-utilizer patients by closing communication gaps across settings that undermine patient care. This partnership simplifies the connection of Collective Medical’s EDie services to hospital emergency departments (EDs) and acute care settings across the state, providing powerful, real-time and fully integrated patient health information for clinicians.

HOW IT HELPS

  • The HealtHIE Nevada health information exchange (HIE) provides electronic connection among physicians, hospitals, labs and other health care organizations.
  • Patient encounters, medication information, medical images, test results and care summaries are delivered instantly, accurately and securely when and where they are needed, instead of waiting for faxes, allowing you to focus on the patient at the point of care.
  • EDie is a lightweight, ED-based, collaborative care management tool for coordinating the care of the highest needs patients across a community of providers, regardless of hospital, emergency center, health system or geographic boundaries.
  • EDie’s notifications refine care coordination information, care histories, security events, known care providers and ED utilization patterns from all EDs visited by a patient, and package them into an alert that can be read in 60 seconds or less. This information is delivered to your ED within moments of a patient registration.

VALUE TO YOU

Using the data through HealtHIE Nevada, EDie will deliver information into your emergency workflow to identify ED high-utilizer patients and easily access patient information to reduce lapses in care and avoid inpatient readmissions and opioid-related deaths.
