Health Information Technologies and Processes

  • 1.  Information Blocking

    Posted 11-02-2020 13:04
    Good afternoon,

    We have a team of Compliance, HIM and IT from both Hospital/Physician side of our Health System working with the Information Blocking process.

    I want to see what other facilities are doing from the HIM perspective.


    1) Policies:  Did you create or add to your policies about the additional locations for storing information?.  Google, Apple, etc.   Media's offered at patient's request.

    2) Direct Messages:   Are you having HIM and Physician Offices work together when a patient or provider sends a message via electronic means, portal to a Physician Office requesting information?

    My facility.....HIM uses outside vendor for ROI and we also have a liaison between the Hospital and ROI that is in HIM to help with this.

    Any information would be appreciated.
