AzHeC and HINAz Collaborating to Recruit Providers
AzHeC and Health Information Network of Arizona (HINAz) recently announced a collaborative effort to recruit providers to participate in health information exchange through HINAz. HINAz is the statewide health information organization (HIO), and its members represent 340 Arizona health care facilities that account for more than 15,000 licensed hospital beds and 3.3 million patient days statewide.
HINAz will allow an authorized provider to securely access and view records from multiple sources such as hospitals, labs, pharmacies and ultimately even other providers. Initially records from major data providers such as labs, pharmacies and hospitals will be accessed and viewed by providers electronically. Ultimately, as this system advances and matures, it is expected that all Arizona providers will link their EHR into the system allowing all authorized providers to securely share patient health records and coordinate care.
HINAz Offers EHR-Lite to Providers
HINAz has announced that it is offering an EHR-Lite product at no charge for the initial six months for up to 1,500 Arizona providers. The product will offer basic EHR functionality and will provide a connection to HINAz. For more information on the EHR-Lite offer, contact AzHeC at (602) 688-7200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
