Hospital Owned Physician Practices and Clinics

    ​I am interested in hearing how your hospital owned physician practices and clinics are set up.  Are they all under the same tax id and or employer id?  Do they all share the same electronic health record and have access to any patient at another hospital owned practice?   Or does each practice maintain their own EHR independently?  Do you require releases from one practice to the other even if all owned by one hospital?

    Thanks in advance.

    I am following this as I am interested as well.

    I am curious to know if the release of information is handled under the HIM department or at the clinics. Our facility has centralized the ROI for hospital and clinics; walk ins or STAT can be handled on site; curious to see if others are doing the same.

    Thanks

    Our hospital owned clinics are under the same tax ID. The hospital HIM department also keep the onsite clinic paper records in our department. Clinics are now have an EHR which is different than the hospital EHR.  We scan any paperwork needed to the clinic EHR. The hospital HIM department is responsible for doing ROI for the onsite clinics and that staff has access to both the clinic and hospital EHR/EMR.

    Our HIM department handles all ROI for the hospital and the hospital owned clinics.

    Do you have a policy re: hospital HIM releasing records for the hospital and the hospital owned clinics?  We do not have a policy and at times we do release information for the clinics but I am leery without a policy.
