Coronavirus Update:What patients and families need to know

Children's IQ Network

CIQN is dedicated to improving the health of the pediatric population by facilitating information sharing, best practices and data analytics. Patient care, experiences and outcomes can be improved through interoperability tools that connect providers, patients and healthcare organizations and provide essential healthcare information anywhere at any time.

Closing the Circle of Care

Provider and Patient: Patient Portal  

CIQN is working closely with patients, Children's National specialists and our primary care physicians to increase use of our patient portals. From the Children's National portals, caregivers can manage health care information, renew medications, schedule appointments and contact providers. 

Provider to Provider: Direct Messaging

CIQN is dedicated to strengthening Children's National relationships with community providers to improve integration of care. The CIQN team is helping providers employ and utilize direct messaging to improve communication and information sharing.  

Population Health: Health Information Exchanges (HIEs)

CIQN works to improve pediatric health outcomes and lower health care costs by assisting local providers in joining health information exchanges. HIEs provide actionable health information on the individual level and allow for tracking, analysis and management of a community’s health. Top 10 Reasons to Join an HIE.

Population Health: Health Registries

By leveraging health registries that include essential clinical and financial data from across the continuum of care, CIQN strives to advance the care and practice of pediatric health practices and drive efficiency within the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

CIQN Electronic Health Record (EHR) Network

The CIQN EHR Network includes over 60 regional practices. CIQN EHR Network links essential health information, such as physician visits, medications, allergies, problems, laboratory results and immunization histories for children throughout the region. CIQN EHR Network members agree to share essential healthcare data within the larger region and participate in quality initiatives. Participating providers receive a significant subsidization to the costs of a highly-rated EHR.
