Resource Summary: Providers working with patients coming to or from health centers may need important health information, such as HIV test results, to help physicians provide the best care possible to the patient. What strategies exist to help health centers give and receive data so that providers can render seamless care without interruption? We’re glad you asked. Data sharing agreements, tools, and standard operating procedures (SOP) are a few strategies that health centers can use to ensure a patient’s electronic health record (EHR) is as detailed and up-to-date as possible.
