Chesapeake Regional Information System for Our Patients (CRISP)
CRISP is Marylandís state designated health information exchange (HIE) serving Maryland and the District of Columbia. CRISP is a not-for-profit organization charged with electronically connecting healthcare providers across the region. We offer FREE HIE services to ambulatory provider. The CRISP Query Portal allows physicians and support staff to query patients they are treating to view clinical information from all 46 acute care hospitals in MD and 6 hospitals in DC. Data available includes lab reports, radiology reports, discharge summaries, history and physicals, medications, and more. The Encounter Notification Service (ENS) allows providers to receive real time notification when any of your patients have a hospital encounter in Maryland, Delaware, and 6 of the hospitals in DC. These notification can enhance your care coordination and possibly prevent a patient from being re-admitted to the hospital. ENS can also assist your practice in receiving Medicare reimbursements for patient follow up.
CRISP is also excited to serve as Marylandís Meaningful Use Resource Center. CRISP understands that achieving Meaningful Use can be a confusing and challenging endeavor for providers and their staff. The Meaningful Use Resource Center was created to provide a single, comprehensive informational tool for Eligible Professionals and their staff as they work towards meeting the Meaningful Use requirements. You can access this site through the CRISP homepage.
