A Community Health Record is a central repository that allows a patient’s medical information to follow the patient wherever they seek treatment in the community. It promotes consumer empowerment by delivering the information people need to manage resources effectively and participate in the planning process with their care team. It makes Transitions of Care easier and more efficient for healthcare providers and it enables the community to provide a medical safety net for patients.

  • Sharing data with HASA allows information to flow through to the HASA FACTS engine to assist with quality outcomes reporting and on to the Go Account to meet patient engagement goals and make information easily available to patients
