SIU Medicine participates in an organized health care arrangement (OHCA) where healthcare providers work jointly to provide quality care.
The covered entities that participate in the OHCA with SIU Medicine are Springfield Clinic, Orthopedic Center of Illinois, and Memorial Physician Services.
The OHCA allows the participating covered entities to share protected health information with each other, as necessary to carry out treatment, payment or healthcare operations related to the OHCA.
The OHCA uses a common electronic medical record among participating covered entities. All providers who participate in the OHCA are able to access the common medical record.
