Nevada Internal Medicine First to Join the New Show-Me Health Information Network of Missouri

SHINE, the Show-Me Health Information Network of Missouri, in partnership with the Missouri State Medical Association, is pleased to announce Nevada Internal Medicine has joined the newly formed physician-led statewide interoperable health information exchange (HIE).

“I am excited to join SHINE,” said Warren C. Lovinger, Jr., MD, MACP, past president of the Missouri Medical Association, and an internal medicine specialist. “As a physician, SHINE can help me access my patients’ medical information when I need it, wherever I am. Better communication and care coordination between my office and hospitals, labs, pharmacies, and referring physicians across the state benefits my patients.
Dr. Lovinger added, “physicians are facing major changes in how they are expected to provide care. Business intelligence and analytics such as those generated by SHINE, deliver the kind of information that helps us identify and treat at-risk populations, proactively engage patients sooner, understand the performance of health interventions on health outcomes, and reduce costs.”

The SHINE HIE is unique and reaches beyond the simple transmission of data at the point of care. SHINE offers a suite of innovative technology tools to help physicians share patient information while employing powerful analytic reports designed to help improve clinical outcomes, reduce inefficiencies, and positively impact patient safety.

Participating physicians, hospitals and other providers share patient health information, including information from all providers and facilities from whom a patient has received care. Physicians can proactively manage their patients’ care in ways that have never been possible before while also establishing efficient methods to meet changing quality reporting requirements.

Alexander Hover, MD, FACP, AGAF, and chair of the SHINE Advisory Committee said, “we value Dr. Lovinger and Nevada Internal Medicine as an HIE partner. Dr. Lovinger has been a champion for Missouri physicians for decades. His leadership in this endeavor is inestimable.”
