Physician’s Health Information Exchange (PHIX) streamlines the flow of a patient’s health information between health care providers.  With PHIX, a patient’s health information is safely stored in their Community Health Record which means all of their health information, including lab results, imaging, and prescriptions, is in one place. This can help a patient’s doctor manage their care.  In the past, health providers shared health records by telephone, fax, mail or limited computer networks.  It was time consuming and not the most reliable.   Today, doctors can located a patient’s health records in a matter of  minutes with PHIX.  The better flow of information between doctors, labs, and pharmacists gives a patient’s doctor a more complete picture of any health concerns and how to treat them.

If a patient’s doctor refers them to a specialists or there is an emergency,  an individual’s health record is already in the system.  That means no more second-guessing the names of medications and no more duplicate lab orders.

The health information will only be accessed on a need-to-know basis and providers determine what information will be included in a person’s Community Health Record that may include:

  • Diagnoses and treatment
  • Allergies and drug reactions
  • Medications and immunizations
  • Lab and x-ray results
  • Other clinical reports

Limited information may be used for community health purposes to identify  health trends and access service needs. However, a person will  never be personally identified for community health purposes.  The PHIX team will only have access to information to provide technical and administrative support.  PHIX will not sell a patient’s personal information for any reason.

An individual does not have to participate. At Emergence Health Network, a client must “opt in” in order to participate and can only do so by completing an “opt in” form that must be given to them by their assigned EHN caseworker.  Once completing the “opt in” form,  consumers must then return it to their assigned caseworker for processing.

If an individual decides later to “opt out” of the program, they can.  Simply request an “opt out” form from the designated case worker, fill it out and return it to the caseworker for processing. If a person decides to “opt out”, their health information will not be avaialbe through a Community Health Record. Only a patient’s name, address, gender, date of birth, and availability status will be viewable. A decision not to participate will not affect a person’s ability to receive healthcare through EHN.  It applies only to sharing information through PHIX and does not affect other authorized sharing of health information between providers.
