Improve Medical Decision Making with CRISP’s Comprehensive Health Information Technology Platforms

CRISP is a regional health information exchange (HIE) serving Maryland and the District of Columbia. We are a non-profit organization advised by a wide range of stakeholders who are responsible for healthcare throughout the region. CRISP has been formally designated as Maryland's statewide health information exchange by the Maryland Health Care Commission.

Our HIE platforms facilitate the electronic transfer of clinical information between disparate health information systems (such as hospitals, EMRs, pharmacies, payors, health centers, and health departments). They function as complete, secure cloud ecosystems comprised of end-to-end patient data, and various applications and tools.

CRISP Portal

The CRISP Portal is the primary platform utilized by CRISP participants, providing access to all HIE services:

CRISP Reporting Services (CRS)

CRISP Reporting Services (CRS) provides secure access to Maryland health care data and related analytics tools to assist health care organizations in improving patient care throughout the State.

CRS uses multiple data sources to offer a unique perspective on readmission rates, potentially avoidable utilization, and other critical measures. CRS products are approved by the Reporting and Analytics Committee, a subcommittee of the CRISP Board, and adhere to best practices in privacy and security.

HIE InContext App

With the HIE InContext platform, an EMR user can access patient information within their established workflows without ever needing to navigate directly to the ULP. This embedded application delivers relevant information consisting of lab results, prescription medications, and more.
