Benefits and Features
There are many benefits to using Health Passport. Some of these are:
- Improving care coordination by connecting authorized providers, state agencies, and medical consenters with health information from various facilities and clinicians.
- Allowing providers and other appropriate persons to monitor compliance with prescription regimens.
- Reducing risk of harmful interactions between medication, allergies, and/or chronic health problems.
- Increasing communication between the main stakeholders in the patient’s care plans.
- Allowing non-clinical member advocates (selected state employees and medical consenters) to review portions of a patient’s general health history and doctor visits to best understand and respond to the child’s needs — physical, behavioral health, and medication needs.
Once Health Passport has been accessed, you will be able to see the following information:
- Face Sheet – Access an easy-to-read summary that includes member demographics, care gaps, Texas Health Steps, Dental, Texas CANS 2.0-Assesment (last visit dates), active allergies, active medications and more.
- Contacts – Find a patient’s PCP, Medical Consenter, Caregiver, Caseworker assigned, and Service Coordinator’s contact information in one place.
- Allergies – View allergies that are available at the point-of-care. Once an allergy is charted, it is instantly checked for medication interactions.
