Query HIE

Query HIE uses the Query-based Information Exchange method to allow care providers to query (search) and retrieve patient information made accessible by other care providers who have previously seen the same patient. Query HIE is particularly useful for unplanned care, such as emergency room visits, but can also be helpful for planned care as well.

In the webinar, we will explain how Query HIE works, when to use it, how it compares to Direct Messaging, and how it can be beneficial to improving patient care. We will also discuss implementations based on the Commonwell and Carequality initiatives. Furthermore, we will present how the Mass HIway's Account Management team can assist with implementing Query HIE, including the technical implementation and the associated workflows. Join us for this webinar to learn more about Query HIE.

Mass HIway Event Notification Services (ENS)

The Mass HIway created the Statewide Event Notification Services (ENS) Framework to facilitate the provision of ENS across the Commonwealth to improve health care delivery, quality, and care coordination. The framework seeks to promote Admission, Discharge, and Transfer (ADTs) data sharing; increase access to ENS for providers of all sizes; streamline the provider experience by allowing for single submission and single reception of data; and to improve the timeliness of data exchange.

This webinar will cover what ENS is and how the Statewide ENS Framework works. We will highlight the advantages of using the framework and provide use case examples. The presentation will showcase the certified ENS Vendors and summarize the certification process. We will also explain how Massachusetts providers, as well as clinical and support staff, can subscribe to an Event Notification Service to receive patient alerts. Join us for this webinar to learn more about the Statewide ENS Framework.
