The Collaborative View is a powerful tool that helps multiple providers caring for the same patient automatically share patient data and coordinate on care — all in real time.
With the Collaborative View, you can:
- Get on-demand access to up-to-date information for a mutual patient.
- Seamlessly collaborate with other providers to automatically communicate updates.
- Close clinical gaps and drive more informed decision making at the point of care.
In order to provide the highest quality care for your patient across settings and between providers.
What does The Collaborative View do?
The Collaborative View connects multiple providers caring for the same patient and provides the patient's entire care network with a comprehensive view of each provider's shared activity.
With the complete longitudinal history at your disposal, you can decide what information is pertinent to you, and import that data into your chart. In turn, any information that you add to your personal chart can be shared with your colleagues, so they can have the most up-to-date information on shared patients.
How does the Collaborative View work?
Elation’s Chart Search now features a Collaborative View filter to let you to find exactly what you’re looking for.
Items shared by other providers will be clearly demarcated with a grey tile and Care Team badge on the respective icon. Open the chart item to view its contents and click “Import and Sign” contents pull the content into your chart to add to your personal record for this patient.
You can filter the results further to display items from a specific providers, or filter for a specific type of document (e.g. “Type: Visit Note” would filter your Chronological Record to only show Visit Notes.)
To remove the filter, simply click the “x” next to the search bar filter to return to your personal chart. This will hide information that's shared by other providers.
The Collaborative View introduces Care Teams into the patient's network, and allows you to get on-demand access to other Care Team member's updates on that patient. To do this:
1. Open the Care Team sections of your patient chart to view sharing providers.
2. There’s no need to fax referrals, request records, or chase down lab results. If a provider in your Care Team is sharing the data, you’ll automatically see that information in your Collaborative View.
From the Care Team menu, click the gear icon in the upper right of each provider and modify your sharing settings. This action will allow you to toggle your sharing on a patient-by-patient basis. To change your sharing settings for all your patients, visit the Collaborative View section of the Settings page.
The Collaborative View adds a "Profile Updates" button to each patient's chart. This button allows you to view updates that other providers on the patient's Care Team have made, and compare them to your own Clinical Profile for that patient.
Additionally, if you have your sharing turned on, any updates you make in your chart will be surfaced to other providers who have access to a patient's shared records to import at their discretion.
You can quickly tell who else has access to your patient chart by consulting the Care Team list by clicking on Care Team in the navigation bar.
Information of who is sharing into and who has access to the shared record is indicated by the badge in the lower left-hand side of their profile picture as follows:
On top of viewing the full Collaborative Health Record, you can search for individual features of the patient's record, such as labs or vitals, and this will search the entire collaborative record.
Structured lab results can be trended across sharing members of the Care Team to give you a more complete picture of a patient's health. Lab values that are surfaced from the Care Team will have a blue profile picture next to the value. You can also click on the value to import into your own personal chart if you'd like.
