Strategies for the Transplant Care Team
Rochester, N.Y., May 3, 2019 – eHealth Technologies, the leading provider of clinical information services, will be exhibiting at the UNOS 27th Annual Transplant Management Forum, in Orlando, FL, May 14-16, 2019.
eHealth Technologies began working with transplant centers in 2006 and now partners with over 40% of the top 100 highest volume transplant facilities in the U.S. As the industry leader in medical record retrieval, eHealth Technologies’ services allow transplant centers to evaluate and list patients more quickly, which can have an immediate impact on patient care and outcomes. Over the past year, eHealth Technologies has signed five new transplant centers, and expanded services at several other sites.
eHealth Connect® solutions, which are utilized by almost half of the hospitals on Becker’s Healthcare 100 Great Hospitals list, enable clinicians to optimize the clinical review of outside records for their on-boarding of new patients for transplant centers and other hospital departments alike. All the information is clinically organized, searchable, and hyperlinked to ensure rapid record review from the clinicians’ EMR, eliminating the need to print and search through paper documents or faxes.
“Working with eHealth Technologies provides a tremendous time savings for our staff, and we are able to obtain records more quickly for our clinical team. Patient care is also positively impacted because we can schedule patients faster and provide a more complete evaluation at the first appointment,” said Kathy Krzeminski, Operations Manager, Center for Transplantation, UC San Diego Health. “eHealth Technologies make the whole process work so much more efficiently.”
eHealth Connect® Record Retrieval allows hospitals to retrieve medical records, images, and pathology slides for referred patients up to 60% faster so they can schedule and create treatment plans more quickly – typically in as little as 1 to 5 days. Using the eHealth Technologies’ online record request system, staff spend minutes submitting a request instead of hours or days collecting records which leads to increased staff and physician satisfaction. With eHealth Connect Clinical Record services, records are organized in an easy-to-navigate format with searchable keywords.
Establishing electronic transmission of medical records and images directly into an EMR or PACS provides easy access to critical information, allowing clinical teams to spend more time on patient care.
Access to outside records is no longer a burden, as eHealth Technologies ensures providers get the information needed before the patient’s first appointment. The eHealth Technologies team can work directly with patients to ensure the information most relevant to their care is discovered and delivered to the transplant team and their EMR and/or PACS.
“We are thrilled to support UNOS, a non-profit organization that manages the nation’s organ transplant system. As a critical partner to many of the top transplant centers in the US, we look forward to discussing how access to clinically organized medical records and images can transform how transplant programs deliver patient care,” stated Jeff Markin, CEO at eHealth Technologies.
