HIE version 2.0 coming to HealtHIE Nevada
In case you hadn’t heard, HealtHIE Nevada has been working over the last year to plan and update the software that makes the HIE run. HIE 2.0 will bring with it some exciting changes and improvements. Among them will be a new master patient index with an improved matching algorithm that will help reduce the incidence of duplicate patient records. Another more obvious and immediate improvement will be the replacement of the Virtual Health Record (VHR) with the Community Patient Profile (CPP). The CPP will offer users an improved and updated user interface that will be easier to navigate, thus saving physicians and staff time finding the information they need to support patients.
We are working hard to make the transition to HIE 2.0 as seamless as possible for our end users. However, to make the complete move from the VHR to the CPP, there are a couple of important things you need to know about.
- All users will be required to have a unique email address. In the past, the use of an email address has not been required for access, and as a result, not all users have an email address on file. To use the CPP, new user names and passwords will be issued to all users. These usernames and passwords will require a unique email from all participants. In the coming weeks, HIE project managers will be reaching out to contacts at participating offices to verify the user information on file and make relevant updates, to include requesting an email address from all users.
- Users will have to go through training for access to the CPP. The CPP is new and different and we want to make sure all of our users are equipped to use the features and functionality to their greatest potential. To facilitate this, we will require that all users participate in training before being granted access. Once we have confirmed user information and obtained unique email addresses for participants, HIE staff will reach out to share training and education schedules.
Please be watching for emails and phone calls from HealtHIE Nevada in the coming weeks to prepare you for HIE 2.0! Through the end of the year you will be hearing more about additional changes and improvements coming to your existing HealtHIE Nevada services.
