External Medical Record Collection Goes Online
July 31, 2008 — eHealth Global Technologies released its eHealthConnect online request service designed to streamline the process required for institutions to retrieve outside patient medical records for referred-in patients.
The online request service provides customized forms for each healthcare institution customer of eHealth Global, and automatically generates the appropriate HIPAA release of information forms to allow access to these records under HIPAA guidelines.
Prior to the launch of this new service, customers had to either fax requests to eHealth Global, or complete an online template that was not specific to that facility’s request. With this new service, users log into a secure portal on the eHealth Global website to access a form customized to that facility’s specific needs and preferences. The software creates a provider list and remembers user preferences, further streamlining the process.
