KHIN is pleased to announce that the new KHIN personal health record system called myHealth eRecord has received ONC certification through the Drummond Group. You can view the certification on the CHPL site. On the site it is listed as "NoMoreClipBoard" as they are the product vendor for myHealth eRecord. This certification allows a KHIN member to use myHealth eRecord to meet their patient engagement requirements for Meaningful Use Stage 2.
KHIN provides myHealth eRecord at no additional cost to KHIN members and for free to Kansas patients. myHealth eRecord provides a location where patients can securely receive and store personal health information, securely email their health care providers and enter their own health information. myHealth eRecord can be accessed at http://myhealth-erecord.org.
KHIN will begin a media campaign led by Jones Huyett Partners in January 2014 to encourage patients to set up personal health records in myHealth eRecord. Using myHealth eRecord benefits Kansas patients and Kansas providers.For patients it provides one location where all of their health information can be maintained. This is preferential to having multiple patient portals as this causes health information to be maintained in many different locations and results in difficulty aggregating the information.
myHealth eRecord allows providers who are receiving MU2 incentive payments to count every time a patient accesses their myHealth eRecord toward their total percentage even if the patient viewed information from another provider.
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas has demonstrated their support of health information exchange in Kansas in a BIG way. BCBSKS is providing an additional 1.25% incentive increase in 2014 payments for any eligible provider who is a KHIN member (some restrictions apply). This increase is outlined in the BCBSKS 2014 Competitive Allowance Program (CAP).
This September and October 2013 KHIN welcomed many new members. These include hospitals, physician practices and health departments. KHIN is pleased to welcome the following organizations:
Kansas providers agree with providers all across the nation: meeting the MU2 Meaningful use measures is much harder than meeting the MU1 measures. One of the most difficult MU2 challenges is the increased requirements involving the transport of personal health information in a secure electronic format. As a health information exchange, KHIN can support our members in a number of ways to help them meet the MU2 requirements.
While KHIN prides itself on providing its members with a reliable, easy to use software interface, we understand that our users may require assistance from time-to-time . This is why all of KHIN's members enjoy expert Tier 1 help desk support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. At KHIN we know health care does not take a break and neither do we.
KHIN contracts with ISG to provide our Tier 1 help desk support. Bobbi Gray oversees all of the KHIN support out of the ISG Wichita, KS offices. KHIN chose ISG to provide our help desk support in 2011 because they were a local company, but also because of their excellent reputation for supporting their customers as their technology needs grow. You can contact the KHIN help desk at 877-520-5448.
KHIN is pleased to announce that, before the end of 2013, members of the two certified health information exchanges in Kansas will be able to share information with each other. KHIN's technology vendor, ICA, and LACIE's technology vendor, Cerner, have been testing the connection to share data across the exchanges. The tentative move to production is scheduled for the first week of December 2013.
This connection will be important for KHIN members who have not had access to health information from Children's Mercy Hospitals, Shawnee Mission Medical Center and Olathe Regional Medical Center. In addition to these Kansas hospitals, KHIN members will also be able to access information from Heartland Regional Medical Center in St. Joseph, MO.
