In patient search, you will find records from hospitals and other healthcare facilities throughout Florida. Records from these facilities are pushed to HIE, in real-time, via HL7 interfaces. This can simplify the process of requesting patient records from multiple facilities.
Patient search vs work queue search
Patient search, is used to locate clinical and demographic records, interfaced facilities, pushed to the HIE. Think of patient search as a replacement for a faxed medical records request.
Work queue search looks for messages other facilities have faxed or electronically sent. Think of work queue search as a replacement for looking through a stack of fax pages.
Each interfaced facility pushed different records to us. Hospitals typically have the greatest select of reports available. Private practices typically publish progress notes or H&P's.
