eHealth introduces new online service
eHealth Global Technologies has released its eHealthConnect online request service for institutions to retrieve outside patient medical records for referred-in patients.

The online request service provides customized forms for each healthcare institution customer of eHealth, and generates the appropriate release of information forms to allow access to the records under HIPAA guidelines, according to the Rochester, N.Y.-based company.

With the new service, eHealth said its users log into a secure portal on the eHealth website to access a form customized to that facility’s specific needs and preferences. The software creates a provider list and remembers user preferences, the company said.
