Sharing patient’s medical history — ClinicalConnect allows your medical record to be available at all participating hospitals if you are receiving care at that facility. For example, if you are cared for by a specialist or emergency physician at one of the participating hospitals/health systems, your information will be immediately available to your primary care provider and “home” hospital/health system.
Saves time and reduces cost — ClinicalConnect can help eliminate duplicate tests and unnecessary procedures by sharing a patient’s data. This can mean fewer appointments and less travel for patients.
