How to Connect to OneHealthPort

Subscribe to OneHealthPort to begin integrating your existing patient data. First, you need administrative access and the "Credentialing Manager" role. You can affiliate your existing OneHealthPort ID or select a new one. If you already have an OneHealthPort ID, you can select the "Licensed practitioner" role.

Credentialing

OneHealthPort credentialing is a process in which a provider can be assigned a unique OneHealthPort Subscriber ID. This ID is required for access to participating websites. To set up the credentialing process, a healthcare organization must register with OneHealthPort and designate an OneHealthPort Administrator. This individual is responsible for managing the Organization's account. The administrator must be able to agree to the OneHealthPort terms and conditions. They are also responsible for basic user management and tax ID management.

HIE

Health Information Exchanges (HIEs) are an important way to exchange clinical and business information securely. OneHealthPort is a Washington State-designated HIE that allows organizations to exchange data through a single connection. This exchange connects public health registries, clinical data repositories, and other sources. It supports standard transactions, including electronic laboratory reporting and syndromic surveillance messages. It also supports system-to-system queries to the Prescription Monitoring Program database and the admission and discharges notification process. The OneHealthPort HIE is supported by over 300 organizations, including over 2,000 facilities.

ProviderSource application

There are several resources available to help you complete the application. The website offers videos, FAQs, and guides to assist you with this process. It also has guides for uploading documents and attesting to your application.

Single Sign-On

It also reduces the risk of information sharing and helps increase portal adoption.

TINs
