VA & HealtheConnections
 Team Up to Improve Healthcare for Veterans
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and HealtheConnections have recently begun a collaboration to use health information exchange (HIE) technology to enable easier, secure access to veterans' vital medical information to improve the quality of care. HealtheConnections is one of 16 organizations in the United States partnering with VA to integrate the Virtual Lifetime Electronic Record (VLER) system with the HIE. 

The integration was achieved through HealtheWay's eHealth Exchange, a group of federal agencies and non-federal organizations with a common mission to improve patient care using a secure, trusted, and interoperable HIE. With over 275 participating organizations - including 25 regional hospitals, radiology centers, and labs - the HIE manages and governs the collection of medical records from over 40 health care facilities. VA providers' access to the HIE offers a more comprehensive view to veterans' medical records as they seek medical treatment outside of the VA, while giving other community health care providers the ability to query into the VA's system. 

The link between VLER and the HIE offers VA healthcare clinicians access to all laboratory results, radiology images, allergies, immunizations, vital statistics, hospital reports, and medical history within the HIE for all participating veterans while simultaneously granting non-VA clinicians access to the same categories of records within the VLER. Veterans are required to sign consent forms for VLER and HealtheConnections to authorize healthcare providers in both settings to view their electronic medical records. 


Laboratory Alliance of Central New York Sending Data from All Facilities

HealtheConnections is pleased to announce that lab alliance
Laboratory Alliance of Central New York, LLC is now sending data from all of its non-hospital based Patient Service Centers as of April 2, 2014. 


myResults Service Coming June 2014

HealtheConnections myResults feature allows instant access to patient medical records via a secure web portal into the Health Information Exchange (HIE). Viewing data is quick and easy, and there is no cost to access the portal.

This service provides the capability to view comprehensive clinical reports such as lab results and transcribed reports within the HIE. When a report is sent to the HIE and a provider is listed as an Attending, Referring, Ordering, Consulting, Copied To, or Admitting on a report, the report will be available for that provider to view within the myResults tab.

DirectTrust Cooperative Agreement with ONC Renewed

DirectTrust, a non-profit trade alliance that advances secure, health information exchange via the Direct Protocol, announced today that its Cooperative Agreement with the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) has been renewed for a second full year. The renewal came after DirectTrust not only met, but exceeded the goals of the ONC's Exemplar HIE Governance Program.
