Supporting Public Health Through Data Sharing
As our community faces the COVID-19 pandemic, PHIX is working with physicians as well as the City of El Paso Department of Public Health (DPH) to have the right data available securely and electronically to support patient care and management.
 
For example, Epidemiologists at DPH are using PHIX to track patients with confirmed or suspected infectious diseases while they are in the hospital. This enables the epidemiologists to get the information that they need efficiently and limits calls and faxes to the physicians and nurses who are busy caring for patients.

If we can support you in any way, please call our office at 915-242-0674.
Texas Tech Clinic Data Now Available
Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso and its clinical practice, Texas Tech Physicians of El Paso, have partnered with PHIX to improve patient care in the Borderland. Records from Texas Tech are now available through the health information exchange.

UMC and El Paso Children's Hospital
Expand Data Sharing
We are excited to announce that University Medical Center of El  Paso (UMC) and El Paso Children's Hospital (EPCH) have expanded their data sharing with PHIX. UMC and EPCH have been sharing data with  PHIX for several years, including demographics, diagnoses, procedures,and labs. They are now expanding their data sharing to include physician and nurse notes (eg, discharge summaries, progress notes, and consult notes) as well as radiology reports. This new information is now available for PHIX's users, which will support better care coordination across our region.
