Clinical Data Repository (CDR) updates

HIT’s work will soon wrap on developing tools to help behavioral health and substance use disorder providers supplement care given to their clients. In the coming months we will provide materials live and pre-recorded webinars describing how providers are using processes to coordinate care using Collective Ambulatory, HCA’s SUD guidelines, the Prescription Monitoring Program, and the CDR. 

CDR numbers as of August

  • Continuity of Care Documents (CCDs) added to the CDR in July: ~335,000
  • CCDs received to date: ~15,359,000
  • Clients in the CDR with at least 1 CCD: ~1,178,000

How to get CDR access

For new subscribers, and until further notice, OneHealthPort is waiving the HIE participant annual subscription fee for one year to view patient data through the CDR web portal. Use of other HIE services during this period voids the offer. Please contact OneHealthPort for complete details.

The CDR web portal

The CDR web portal is available for viewing by all licensed professionals. This includes physical and behavioral health providers and their delegates.

  • All organizations viewing CDR data must be a HIPAA covered entity and have a HIE participation agreement with OneHealthPort.
  • Only staff with a need to view individual client-level data may access the CDR. (As determined by their manager and configured by their internal IT access staff.) This is similar to how your organization grants electronic health records access.
  • Users can complete training in one hour or less. Organizations using the CDR will not incur training costs from OneHealthPort or HCA. Reference materials are available on OneHealthPort’s website.
