The Indiana Health Information Exchange (IHIE) and Indianapolis-based health system Franciscan Alliance are partnering to improve interoperability by accessing the HIE with a single click from the electronic health record (EHR).  

Now, with one click of the mouse, Franciscan Alliance physicians can access the Indiana Health Information Exchange’s CareWeb application from within their Epic EHR. This single sign-on process provides Franciscan Alliance physicians with accurate, comprehensive, and up-to-date information from all IHIE participants within their existing workflows. The process securely and automatically links the session to the proper patient, eliminating the need for the user to re-enter information, officials say.

Franciscan Alliance is a charter member of the Indiana Health Information Exchange, and their partnership with IHIE dates back to 2004. Franciscan Alliance has 13 hospitals in Indiana and Illinois. This partnership impacts approximately 580 users across Indiana in the Franciscan Alliance health system.

“We were able to complete this implementation in under eight weeks, providing an efficient solution to meet the interoperability needs of our customer and improve the usability of an important resource available to physicians,” John Kansky, president and CEO of IHIE, said in a statement. “We look forward to working with more of our partners and other EHR vendors to support the best possible care for all patients.”
