Accessing GaHIN Through GAMMIS
Medicaid providers throughout Georgia have ready access to electronic patient records through the Clinical Viewer that is available through GAMMIS portal. This webinar will offer an introduction to the clinical viewer and include a demo of features and capabilities. Providers will learn how this tool can help them with accessing the most current available patient information that will facilitate clinical decision making and ultimately may improve the patient encounter experience.
The Benefits of Accessing Lab Results Electronically
The ability to easily access lab results offers providers the ability to improve care quality at the point of care with access to more comprehensive patient data while eliminating unnecessary or duplicate testing and reducing costs. During this webinar, we will explore GaHIN’s electronic lab results services and the value that you can expect to achieve.
The Role of Medication Fill Data in Measuring Adherence and Preventing Abuse
When providers send a patient out the door with a prescription, it’s difficult to know whether they will actually fill the prescription and take the drug. Data on prescription fills is one piece of information that can shed light on patient adherence as well as potential abuse of certain substances. This webinar will provide an overview of the new GaHIN medication fill history service including the data available for sharing across providers. The value and benefits that can be achieved from this service by participating providers will be discussed along with the program’s impact on monitoring drug compliance.
