Another Milestone for DHIN; Another Benefit for Consumers
Maryland’s PRMC Newest Out-of-State Sender
Adding another rung to the ladder to a complete medical record for Delaware patients, the Delaware Health Information Network (DHIN) recently welcomed Peninsula Regional Medical Center as a data sender. As the second out-of-state data sender, Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC) provides results and reports from each visit a Delaware patient makes to the Salisbury-based health system.
“This is an important milestone for Southern Delaware’s patients and healthcare practitioners,” said Dr. Jan Lee, DHIN CEO. “The addition of PRMC to Delaware Health Information Network’s roster of data senders helps build a more complete health history for Delaware patients and supports their Delaware medical teams in making decisions about their care.”
Three Maryland-based hospitals – Atlantic General, PRMC and Union – currently send clinical results through to DHIN to DHIN enrolled providers as well as admission, discharge and transfer summaries (ADT’s). The other 41 Maryland hospitals, as well as all six District of Columbia hospitals, deliver ADT’s on Delaware residents who are treated at Maryland hospitals so that these encounters are available in DHIN’s Community Health Record.
PRMC takes data exchange a step further, joining Union Hospital, all Delaware acute care hospitals and private laboratory and radiology providers in sharing test results and transcribed notes with patients’ Delaware based healthcare teams.
