Valuable Collaborative Relationships

MHC is partnered with the Missouri Hospital Association (MHA)

  • Supports Hospital Industry Data Institute (HIDI) Advantage
    • For any MHC Participant that is also a member of MHA, MHC will port their ADT (as this data is required by MHA) to HIDI as a benefit included in the annual MHC fee, so Participants don't have to duplicate ADT interfaces.
    • Available through the HIDI Advantage notification portal, participating hospitals will receive alerts regarding emergency department super-utilizers.  The alert is created when a patient arrives in the ED who is at high risk for having 10 or more ED or inpatient stays within a 12-month period.

MHC is partnered with the Missouri Primary Care Association (MPCA) 

  • Through this partnership, MHC provides MPCA and their members with real-time data to be used for their internal analysis.

 

National Interoperability
