PHIX Connected to Military Health System

PHIX announced the Military Health System (MHS) is participating with El Paso’s health information exchange. This connection enables hospitals and providers in our community to securely access their patients’ health records from the MHS electronically, including William Beaumont Army Medical Center and the 49th Medical Group at Holloman Air Force Base. Similarly, physicians and providers within the MHS can now access health records from PHIX’s partners in the community.

How does PHIX help you in caring for your patients?

I use the health information exchange (HIE) a lot when a patient comes to us and we don’t have much information. For example, I use the HIE when we don’t have the patient’s labs or notes from their physicians. It is a very helpful tool and it helps us avoid repeating labs.

Is it efficient for you to use the HIE to gather patient records?

Yes. I use HIE on a daily basis.

Is there anything that is not currently part of the HIE that you would like?

I would like to see even more facilities participating. It would also be great to see images in addition to imaging reports and more pediatric growth charts.

Free Physician Training: Avoiding MIPS Penalties

Physician practices face a penalty if they do not report for MIPS in 2018. Practices still have time to prepare to accurately report for MIPS. Please join us to learn about the many changes to MIPS this year, including the need to report a full year of data for the Quality performance category data.

PHIX’s expert, Veronica Patton, will provide an overview of the reporting requirements during this free training.

Date: December 6, 2018
Time: 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Location: 221 N Kansas, 19th Floor (Wells Fargo Building)
Parking: We will validate parking in the Wells Fargo garage on Kansas Street.

PHIX User Tips

Where can I access discharge summaries?

Discharge summaries are available in the “Reports” section of the Patient Summary. Consultations and physician notes are also available here. Click each report for more details. Note that the Patient Summary will highlight the most recent three results. Click “All Reports” to see more.

What should I access through PHIX?

PHIX users should only access health records through the health information exchange (HIE) as necessary to care for their patients. The HIE is not intended to be patient facing, so users should not access their own health records or health records of family members. PHIX staff perform regular audits to ensure that the HIE is only accessed appropriately.

What if I need a refresher on how to use PHIX?

PHIX’s latest training videos are always available on our website at: http://phixnetwork.org/provider-training-videos.

You can also call our office at 915-242-0674 with any questions or to schedule a training with our team.
