July News: Preparing for Explore
July 2015
RHIO Report | Better Information for Better Patient Care

Preparing for Explore
Here are the three most important things you need to know about making the move from the VHR to Explore:
  • Users will continue to have access to the VHR until they have completed their move to Explore.
  • All VHR users will need to complete an Explore training session before having access to the new query portal.
  • Your organization can choose from these options for Explore training:  self-guided computer based module, onsite or webinar hosted by RHIO staff. 
There will be a new computer-based-training (CBT) module for Explore users. 
Starting in September, the RHIO will also offer a series of webinars to train Explore users.  RHIO Deployment staff will present these 30 minute webinars.  Each webinar will be followed by Q&A.  Mark your calendar today for one of the webinars listed below - information about registration will be available in August.

If your organization is a FLPPS participant, but has not yet signed a Data Sharing Agreement with the Rochester RHIO, please contact the RHIO Deployment Team at 1-877-865-7446 so that we can begin the on-boarding process.
