Introducing New Population Health Tool for Local Health Departments

Leveraging the patient health information contributed from more than 500 organizations in our 26-county region, we’ve launched a new application for local health departments (LHDs) to view de-identified clinical data from the HIE for population health-level use. The application is an analytics-based tool, with graphical dashboards and user-selectable criteria, that includes prevalence estimates of hypertension, diabetes and pre-diabetes at the county and zip code level.

Through this tool, LHDs can better understand disease prevalence, and plan effective interventions to address disparities and protect and improve public health.

“We are pleased to leverage our robust HIE clinical network to support our local health departments and the vital role they play in the wellbeing of our communities. While the application is initially being launched with LHDs, there is enormous potential for these population-level data to be made available to a broader set of users to help providers examine the context under which their patients live.”

Active Consent Report Now Available

The Emergency-Only consent report that was previously available through the audit badge has been replaced with an Active Consent Report. This will allow users with the Audit Report badge to pull the complete Active Consent Report for the organizations that they work for.

Important Note: Data is synced every night, so consent values that are entered today will not show on the report until tomorrow!
