Advance Care Plan: Unlike transitional care management (TCM) (CPT codes 99495 and 99496) or chronic care management (CCM) (CPT code 99490), more than one provider may bill for ACP furnished to the same patient during the same time period.
Unlike chronic care management, the physician or NPP is not required to obtain the patient’s written consent to bill for ACP. Although not required, CMS encourages providers to inform patients of applicable cost-sharing requirements.

EMED Health Information Exchange (EMEDHIE) is a tool to engage, empower, and inspire people to achieve better health at lower cost. EMED has four major features: -
  • A personal, confidential health network to communicate with your providers, health coaches, specific communities, friends, and family. You are always in charge of your information and you decide how, when, and with whom it is shared.
  • Tool for managing your medical bills, insurance claims, and health accounts such as FSA and HSA.
  • A secure life-long Personal Health Record (PHR).
  • Tool for personalized preventive health & wellness recommendations and follow-ups.
If you came to EMED through a link from one of your healthcare providers, your provider may or may not send certain information, like Imaging Reports (please note: this information may take up to 10 days to appear in your account). If, for example, you were hoping to see your Imaging Reports but they were not sent (ie. 10 days have passed), contact your provider to see if they are sending this information to patients through EMED. Many people want to know how to use EMED to store their complete medical record. One way is to manually input the information yourself in your “Health Records” page.
The best way to obtain and store your information is to contact your healthcare providers and ask for “an electronic copy of my medical record.” Providers are REQUIRED to be able to provide this information to you in the form of a special file called a “CCD or CCDA.” (Alternatively, some facilities offer a "Patient Portal" where you can login to view lab results and other health information. Typically these services also offer the ability to download this “CCD” file, often contained within a ZIP folder.) Once you obtain the “CCD” file, you can use the “Health Record Setup Wizard or CCD/CCDA IMPORT” page to upload the file. EMED will then automatically read the information and sort and organize it appropriately.
In addition, many providers are joining in on EMED's efforts and participate in direct, automated transmission of health information with us. This eliminates the somewhat tedious middle step of obtaining the “CCD” file from your provider and needing to upload it into EMED portal. If your provider is interested in connecting with us, encourage them to register at www.emedhie.com
Ultimately, our goal is to allow you to obtain, manage, store, and transfer all of your health information in one place in a completely automated way. We're making great strides towards this goal, and will continue to update our users as new developments arise. If you have further questions, are having trouble with a “CCD/CCDA” file, or would like to learn more, please visit our Forum or email us at support@emedhie.com

Your Personal Health Record is a private and secure online record of your clinical information such as your problem list, allergies, medications, immunization records, lab tests, and procedures.
  • Your health information is scattered across many different providers and healthcare organizations. Keeping your own complete, updated, and easily-accessible health record has a number of benefits to you as a healthcare consumer. Storing, reviewing, and consolidating this information helps you become an informed healthcare consumer.
  • A current up-to-date PHR can reduce or eliminate duplicate procedures or tests saving you time and money.
  • A consolidated record allows you to knowledgeably discuss your health with healthcare providers and bring new caregivers up to speed in a very short time.
  • Easy access and mobility of your EMED record of pre-existing problems, allergies, and medications is invaluable during an emergency.
  • Your account allows storage of physician instructions, prescriptions, allergies, medications, insurance claims, etc.
  • Electronic, online storage allows you to share your information securely with your providers, caregivers, and family members.
You can create a personal health record for each of your family members. Establish them as your family in EMED and all PHR capabilities are available to each of them. Anyone in your account over the age of 18 can have separate access to his or her Personal Health Record. You can directly operate accounts for children under the age of 18 and for other individuals for whose care you are responsible.
One of the most important benefits of seeing your health record is that you can take greater personal responsibility for your health information. If you see information that you think is not accurate, you may want to discuss that with your provider at your next visit, or if more urgent, you may contact your provider sooner. The Problem List is probably the health information that patients find most difficult to understand. A “Problem” might include the name of a screening test, like “Screening Mammogram,” which might seem illogical to you. But the need for a screening test is considered a medical problem. In some cases, you might see the same problem stated in multiple different ways, or an old problem that no longer exists. You can edit your Problems yourself, or you can discuss your problem list with your healthcare provider at your next visit.
