HERON Michigan: Search for patients with MyChart accounts

Interested in limiting your search to patients with MyChart accounts? HERON Michigan introduces the MyChart folder within Demographics. This folder provides granular information in addition to the general question of whether or not the patient has an account. For example: Looking for only active MyChart users? Search patients who activated and accessed their account. This will eliminate patients who activate but never use their accounts. Want to limit your search to only patients you can contact via email? Search the "Chose to receive E-mail" folder.

Identified patient notes are now available for identified data requests. While you cannot search these notes in HERON, the notes can be provided in an approved identified data request. For example, drag Reports->Visit Notes->Note Types->ED Provider Notes into your query to receive the provider note text from ED visits for patients in your patient set.

HERON Quivira reinstates the Human Subjects Training check and presents email flags

HERON Quivira release checks the new CITI Human Subjects Training program. If your training has lapsed, you will have until July 1, 2015 to complete it. After July 1, your HERON access will be terminated if training is not in compliance.

Want to know how many patients meeting your search criteria have email addresses on file? HERON Quivira release includes a searchable flag for either IDX (billing) or O2 (electronic medical record) recorded email addresses.

In an effort to facilitate your data analysis, this release will allow for data limited to modifiers. Previously, your data set would include any modifier attached to the patient observation. For example, if you wanted an inpatient medication, such as Clopidogrel, you would receive any observation associated with that medication (e.g., inpatient order, dose, historical medication, and more). Now, if you only want the data associated with one of the modifiers, such as outpatient order, your dataset will include only outpatient order observations. All modifiers are still available for a search concept. The data will reflect your search. If you pull a modifier into your search, you will receive observations for that modifier only. If you don't limit the modifier in the search, you will receive all modifier observations for that concept.

HERON Cheyenne Bottoms maps laboratory tests to LOINC

LOINC codes are universal identifiers used to facilitate the sharing of laboratory data for research, outcomes management, and clinical care. The Cheyenne Bottoms release includes two folders for labs: LOINC and Hospital. While the majority of labs are mapped to LOINC, future work continues. As a result, the HERON LOINC hierarchy is in draft format. Please send any feedback on this change to heron-admin@….

The new hierarchy structure for HERON laboratory tests is based upon discussions at the GPC Hackathon Two and work by Cerner. Many thanks to Cerner and the GPC Dev team for input and scripts.

HERON McMillan Marsh improves IDX/O2 encounter mapping and introduces Alerts

Looking for medications prescribed at an outpatient surgery visit? Want to limit patients with an outpatient surgery to those with a specific diagnosis at the time of surgery? Now you can. HERON McMillan Marsh maps IDX and O2 encounters resulting in the ability to link O2 concepts, such as diagnosis and medications, with IDX concepts, such as outpatient procedures, with the same financial encounter temporal constraint.

New data types

  • Best practice and medication alerts are accessible in the Alert folder. This folder is in draft mode, and your feedback is welcome.
  • Emergency Episode is a new field available in the Visit Details/Encounter Type folder. This field allows you to search for patients seen in the emergency department regardless of where their encounters originated or terminated. The Emergency field, also in the Encounter Type folder, represents patients who left the Emergency Department without being admitted to the hospital.

HERON Webster release finely tunes data fulfillment and fixes search timeout issue

HERON searches would stop running and appear as processing indefinitely once timed out (~180 seconds). HERON Webster release fixes the issue. Once a search times out, it will continue to search in the background. Check the query in your previous queries section to see if the search completes.

This release includes back-end enhancements that will allow for more precise data delivery when requesting data. Searches limited by dates will now provide only data within those date ranges. Improvements to identified data requests are also included. Learn more about requesting data.

HERON turns 45 with the Kanopolis Release and includes temporal query reuse fix and new concept, IDX Place of Service

The HERON Kanopolis release marks the 45th update to HERON. Over the past 46 months, HERON has grown in terms of data and functionality. Temporal Queries, ability to filter searches through modifiers, and improvements to the Timeline tool are just a few examples of new functionality. HERON continues to grow through the PCORI Greater Plains Collaborative (GPC) work toward standardization of concept hierarchies, and the amount of medical data within HERON has grown from approximately 300 Million in the early releases to over 1.68 Billion medical observations in this release.

HERON Kanopolis new features (concepts):

  • IDX Place of Service, new concept that identifies the physical setting for outpatient/clinic-based services (office, clinic, inpatient hospital, outpatient hospital, emergency room hospital and others).

HERON Kanopolis fixes:

  • Inability to reuse temporal queries
  • Same financial encounter mapping between UHC and O2 data

HERON Kanopolis known issues:

  • 8300 UHC to O2 encounter mappings are lost. The HERON team is troubleshooting this issue.
  • Flowsheets observations decreased due to data clean-up in O2.

The Kanopolis release includes data through November 2014.

HERON Verdigris: Search laboratory tests by reference ranges

Don't know the exact reference ranges for a certain lab? No problem since you can search a subset of HERON labs by High, Low, or Normal ranges. To search lab ranges:

  • Drag a lab into the search group. The value window will display if a value exists for this lab
  • Select By Flag on the value window
  • Select Normal, High, or Low
  • Click OK and continue building your search.

Note that the value window will not appear for some labs. For example, the influenza laboratory test returns either positive or negative. As a result, you cannot search by value or range.

Temporal searching available in HERON Delaware release

Please note: Clear your browser cache if you receive an error when starting the HERON query tool.

Instructions to clear cache for Firefox and Chrome.

HERON Delaware upgrade to i2b2 v1.7.03 introduces the Temporal Query Tool which allows you to narrow your search by a series of events. For example:

  • Define a population
    • create a search for males with hypertension and acute myocardial infarction
  • Define events
    • Event 1 is hypertension
    • Event 2 is acute myocardial infarction
  • Define temporal relationships of the events
    • Event 1 happens before event 2 by greater than 1 day
  • Submit the query.
    • Results include the number of male patients who have had at least 1 acute myocardial infarction diagnosis after a hypertension diagnosis.

HERON issues to note due to recent data clean-up by the O2 team:

  • Deceased per Social Security Master Death File decreased due to the removal of certain Social Security Numbers in the EMR. See #2911 for more details.
  • Nursing data decreased. See #2955 for more details.

HERON Wakarusa include UHC fix and Fishing Trip update

A University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC) format change for Sept 2013 to June 2014 data resulted in the exclusion of a small portion of UHC data from HERON. This issue is fixed with the HERON Wakarusa release.

The 2nd Annual HERON Fishing trip took place on July 28, 2014. Agenda and recorded sessions are available. A demo of i2b2 version 1.7 gave the attendees a glimpse of upcoming temporal searching capabilities. HERON is built upon i2b2. Look for this new functionality when HERON moves to i2b2 version 1.7 in the future.

HERON Republican: searching by lab value fixed and microbiology positive results available

HERON Republican release allows you to limit laboratory searches to a value for tests with a value assigned. If a lab test does not include a value (e.g., testing positive or negative for influenza) the option to limit by value will not appear. This release also introduces outpatient billing service lines and microbiology positive results.

Remember: any publication that results from a project utilizing HERON should cite grant support (CTSA Award # UL1TR000001).
