San Luis Valley Health Regional Medical Center joins CommonWell Health Alliance® to improve coordinated care
San Luis Valley Health Regional Medical Center employs CommonWell Health Alliance® services to connect with its affiliated clinics using other vendor EHRs.
After implementing MEDITECH Expanse, San Luis Valley Health Regional Medical Center(Alamosa, CO) had one integrated record across the hospital, emergency department, and outside clinics — enabling the organization to better coordinate care across providers, colleagues, and partners. However, gaps in information still occurred when patients were transferred from affiliated hospitals and clinics that used other vendors’ EHRs, especially with Valley-Wide Health Systems, Inc., where many of its patients receive primary care.
To fill these gaps, SLVH RMC turned to MEDITECH to enable CommonWell Health Alliance® services across the acute care, ambulatory, and ED settings through its CommonWell Connected™ product for Expanse.
Using CommonWell services SLVH RMC connected with affiliated clinics, the organization was able to:
- Show the full patient story, regardless of care location in or out of network
- Pull in allergies, medications, and other discrete data to support interaction checking
- Save clinicians time by limiting calls to other facilities
- Eliminate duplicate testing.
