ADT notifications are being sent between the two states
Care can now be coordinated no matter where treatment occurs
Six-state Patient Center Data Home hub expanding across the West
BOISE, Idaho and SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – July 24, 2017 – The Idaho Health Data Exchange (IHDE) and UHIN, the state-designated health information exchange (HIE) in Utah, have connected to exchange admission, discharge and transfer (ADT) notifications for patients who live in one of the states but have a medical encounter in the other state. These initial queries from HIE to HIE are based on the patient’s home zip code, and allow primary care physicians to better coordinate care no matter where the care occurs.
