HealtheConnections is proud to announce a partnership and data sharing agreement with the Oswego Health Tele-Health Urgent Care. This tele-health program, called Care OnDemand, is innovative in the area, helping patients by delivering affordable, efficient care wherever they are.
Residents in Oswego County will be able to get medical advice and healthcare services directly through any device that supports video conferencing, such as Skype and Facetime. This is almost immediate—within 30 minutes, a doctor will be available to speak with the patient via video call. To make this possible, Oswego Health is working with Carena, a firm specializing in virtual health clinics throughout the country.
This data-sharing partnership sends information securely to HealtheConnections, allowing connected providers to access other critical data they need to care for their patients. The data will be incorporated into a patient’s comprehensive medical record, giving their doctors the most complete picture of their health needs at any time.
HealtheConnections views this as a positive step forward in healthcare technology for the region by linking tele-health with the health information exchange.
How Sun River Health Uses HealtheConnections
HealtheConnections recently had the opportunity to work with Sun River Health, a Federally Qualified Health Center and one of the nation’s largest community health providers. Sun River Health was awarded a grant centered on creating a dashboard that would, of many things, help lower readmission rates and schedule follow-ups after an ED visit. One of the goals was to implement an alerting system in which secure files would be sent as an alert to their dashboard. HealtheConnections was able to assist by quickly setting up its daily digest alerting function through Sun River Health’s dashboard.
This is just one example of how organizations like yours can use HealtheConnections and the health information exchange to improve care.
Like all of our core HIE services, it is FREE.

For a busy care manager, coordinating medical treatments, including administering assessments, developing care plans, and monitoring medication compliance to advocate for a patient’s health is no easy task.
Care managers serve as the main point of contact between the patient and practice and need to get in touch with various people to coordinate a patient’s care. But getting the right person on the phone or through email can be a challenge.
With HealtheConnections, care managers can view a patient’s medical summary, including provider notes, discharge information, medications, allergies, and more, all in one place.
No faxing. No calling. No waiting.
Care Managers leverage HealtheConnections’ services to:
“HealtheConnections is a huge part of follow-up. If there is a patient who is not in our hospital system, we can log into the myConnections portal, see why the patient was there, view provider notes, and receive discharge information all in one place. That way, we know what steps to take upon their discharge and assist the patient with any needed follow-up.”
