Orlando Health is a $3.8 billion, not-for-profit, community-based network of hospitals, doctor practices, and outpatient care facilities throughout Central Florida.
The group is home to the area’s only Level One Trauma Facilities for adults and pediatrics. It is a statutory educating hospital system that provides specialty as well as community hospitals.
Enacted last July 1, HB-843 is a new Florida regulation that requires notifications of sufferers’ primary care physicians within 24 hours following hospital admission.
The new regulation requires that the discharge abstract and medical information be provided to the primary care doctor within 14 days after the affected person’s discharge from the hospital.
It provides for sufferers to request a hospital treating doctor to consult with their primary care doctor or specialist provider.
Major well-being systems like Orlando Health have scrambled to implement new workflows and technologies to allow mobile care group collaboration with neighborhood physicians and prolong the reach of their electronic well-being records as now required by Florida law.
The first aim of the law was to enact real-time notifications between providers at the point of suffers care to forestall hospital readmissions and unnecessary or redundant diagnostic assessments like CT-scans and MRIs, he explained.
Moreover, the system will merge with Orlando Health’s electronic health record system in parallel with the group’s phased transition to a new comprehensive well-being record system over the next year.
There’s a variety of care coordination health IT vendors in the market, such as Ensocare, eQHealth, Greenway Wellbeing, GSI Health, Optum, and VitalHealth Software.
