Benefits and Features
There are many benefits to using Health Passport. Some of these are:
- Improves care coordination by connecting authorized providers, state agencies, and medical consenters with health information from various facilities and clinicians.
- Allows providers and other appropriate persons to monitor compliance with prescription regimens.
- Reduces risk of harmful interactions between medication, allergies, and/or chronic health problems.
- Increases communication between the main stakeholders in the member’s care plans.
- Allows non-clinical member advocates (selected state employees and medical consenters) to review portions of a child’s general health history and doctor visits to best understand and respond to the child’s needs — physical, behavioral health, and medication needs.
Once you have accessed Health Passport, you will be able to see the following information:
- Face Sheet – An easy-to-read summary that includes member demographics, care gaps, Texas Health Steps and Dental last visit dates, active allergies, active medications and more.
- Contacts – Easily find a foster child’s PCP, Medical Consenter, Caregiver, Caseworker, and Service Coordinator contact information in one place.
- Allergies – Providers can use interactive fields to add or modify allergies at the point-of-care. Once an allergy is charted, it’s instantly checked for medication interactions.
- Assessments – Providers can document Texas Health Steps, Dental and Behavioral Health forms directly online. Mailing or faxing in documents critical to patient care for display is also available.
- Growth Chart – Providers can chart weight, height, length and head circumference at the point of care to track growth of infants and children.
- Immunizations – A comprehensive list of a person’s immunizations collected from ImmTrac.
- Labs – All lab results are made available, where providers typically only have access to the lab results they’ve requested.
- Medication History – A summary of medications filled and access to more detail, including name of the prescription, the prescribing clinician, date filled and dosage. Indicators representing drug-drug, drug-allergy, and drug-food interactions appear when applicable as soon as new medications or allergies are added to the member record.
- Patient History – Past visits with details that include the description of service, treating provider, diagnosis and the service date.
- Appointments – All users can manage and review appointments for members.
