HealthShare Exchange (HSX) works with several accountable care organizations (ACO) and other risk-bearing entities that care for specific populations across the region. Through participation with HSX, ACOs have access to more timely notifications about patient activity in HSX-member hospitals and can more effectively coordinate care in collaboration with patients and their treating providers.

  • ACOs subscribe to panels of current patients and receive timely notifications when they are hospitalized or present to an emergency department and then are subsequently discharged.

Quality Reporting

  • Leveraging the CDR, current medical information can be accessed by authorized users to support quality reporting initiatives.

Clinical Activity History (CAH)

HSX integrates with patient insurance providers to receive recent claims history. The patient’s insurance claims data is compiled into a Continuity of Care Document and is sent to requesting healthcare providers. Healthcare providers can access centralized clinical information through our Clinical Data Repository or in their Electronic Health Record via Direct Secure Messaging.
