PEDIATRIC PATIENT SUMMARY

Health Information Exchange (HIE) systems provide clinicians with medical records for patients from other clinics and hospitals. Patients with extensive medical histories can have hundreds of records, often leaving clinicians insufficient tools to decipher patient information quickly.

Pediatric Patient Summary (PPS) works with preexisting regional HIE systems to allow parents and clinicians to create detailed, succinct, and relevant summaries of a children’s medical records. PPS is particularly useful for children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN). The application allows parents of CYSHCN to annotate their children’s medical records with personalized information and possible corrections so that medical providers can deliver the best possible care.
