Lightning Fast EHR Data Delivery

You can now request EHR data within your EIS Direct platform and receive records overnight, rather than waiting weeks, saving you hundreds per chart in state fees.

What’s more, you can seamlessly transition EHR data to APS retrieval with just a click. No patient portal details are required.







Electronic Health Records (EHR) have quickly become a valuable source to underwriters for screening applications. Express Imaging Services, Inc has created this first ever EHR to APS streamlined ordering process. Clients now have the ability to order and view EHR’s and make a decision prior to ordering APS's, if additional medical records are necessary. We have provided important information on EHR’s, the differences between EHR/EMR and a flowchart on how the streamlined ordering process works. In addition, this service is available to anyone who has a valid HIPAA authorization. Our secure seamless process does not require applicants to release their patient portal credentials like other vendors.

EIS has partnered with Clareto for the retrieval of electronic health records. Clareto is the leading provider of electronic health data for life and disability insurance carriers, with a proprietary data network comprised of over 52 million unique patient lives across 36 states. Clareto operates a MedVirginia, a Health Information Exchange (HIE) in Richmond, and leverages it’s infrastructure, eHealth exchange connection and governance to expand carrier access to data and improve the customer experience. Clareto’s data providers include state and regional HIEs, healthcare organizations and technology vendors.



What is an EHR?

An Electronic Health Record (EHR) is an electronic version of a patient’s medical history, that is maintained by the medical provider over time, and may include all of the key administrative clinical data relevant to that persons care under a particular provider, including demographics, progress notes, problems, medications, vital signs, past medical history, immunizations, laboratory data and radiology reports. The EHR automates access to information and has the potential to streamline the clinician's workflow.


What is the difference between an EHR and EMR?

It’s easy to remember the distinction between EMRs and EHRs, if you think about the term “medical” versus the term “health.” An EMR is a narrower view of a patient’s medical history, while an EHR is a more comprehensive report of the patient’s overall health.

Here are a few more ways EMRs and EHRs differ:
  • EMR is mainly used by providers for diagnosis and treatment.
  • EMRs are not designed to be shared outside the individual practice.
  • EHRs are designed to share a patient's information with authorized providers and staff from more than one organization.
  • EHRs allow a patient's medical information to move with them to specialists, labs, imaging facilities, emergency rooms and pharmacies, as well as across state lines.
