Giant Steps Made in SD Health Record Exchange
Scripps Mercy Physician Partners and the Physician Resource Center have actively supported the sharing of patient information to increase the quality and cost-effectiveness of health care.
We are pleased with the giant steps that are being made in the sharing of patient information by San Diego Health Connect and the San Diego health systems as reported in the May 11, 2015 issue of the San Diego Union-Tribune!
More than 1 million patients with Sharp HealthCare, Scripps Health and UC San Diego will soon automatically participate in San Diego’s medical record-sharing network unless they decide to opt out.
The three health systems are transmitting digital consent forms for all of their recent patients to San Diego Health Connect, a nonprofit information exchange that helps doctors quickly and securely view medical information even if it resides across town at a different organization.
