Rappahannock Health Connect
In 2015 we joined with Allscripts and integrated their FollowMyHealth Patient
Portal. We introduced the new Patient Portal in the Mary Washington Medical
Group practices in February and offered it in Mary Washington Hospital
and Stafford Hospital in June. We added our three Emergency Departments
Rappahannock Health Connect integrated 16 community practices to the health
information exchange (HIE).
Going forward, we will be adding 30 new community practices in 2016 as
well as interconnecting to the Virginia-state HIE, ConnectVirginia.
"As Rappahannock Health Connect continues to expand both in capabilities
and user base, it will serve as the underlying foundation providing essential
data connections joining the physician community, enabling the delivery
of high value, high quality health care to the extended Fredericksburg
community. Rappahannock Health Connect will continue to evolve and improve
upon its infrastructure to focus on both immediate needs as well as the
future information exchange needs of the physician community to remain
successful in the ever evolving healthcare environment."
