JHC Benefits & Value for Physicians
Over 2 Million Online Transactions Are Completed Every Month
Between New Jersey Patients & JHC Healthcare Providers
To better track and securely share patients’ complete medical histories, more and more healthcare providers are joining Health Information Organizations like Jersey Health Connect. JHC helps facilitate coordinated patient care, reduce duplicative treatments and avoid costly mistakes. This practice is growing among health providers because the need for electronic health information exchange is clear and the benefits of joining JHC are significant. The connectivity of JHC gives physicians and other care providers “instant access” to important health information about their patients including hospital discharge notifications, lab test results, X-ray, MRI and other imaging reports, physician transcription reports and referral information.
A few examples of JHC benefits include:
- Expedited decision-making through rapid and comprehensive access to clinically relevant patient health data — available anytime, anywhere.
- Improved quality of care processes and delivery through enhanced ability to assess, monitor, and direct treatment and services for patients.
- Expanded collaboration and care coordination across the continuum of care —from outpatient and inpatient settings, long-term care and ambulatory care, to the patient’s home.
- Increased flexibility, efficiency and accountability by enabling connectivity among care teams (providers and patients) at any time, no matter where services are provided.
