Health Information Exchange (HIE)
Interoperability and Data Liquidity for HIE Success
Interoperability has long been the “holy grail” of health IT, challenging developers and provider organizations alike to find secure, reliable ways to share information across caregiver locations and with public health agencies. Today, as we work collaboratively to accelerate the adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) – with the ultimate objective of connecting healthcare provider organizations across communities, regions and, eventually, the nation – we have the advantage of experience as well as the latest tools to help us take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity.
Greenway Medical Technologies has taken an aggressive approach to ensure that our EHR solutions are built on the most flexible and interoperable technologies available, and that our PrimeEXCHANGE® integration platform meets our customers’ needs to share information. Our philosophy is that Greenway customers, and the patients they care for, should benefit from the ability to easily interoperate across provider sites to maximize the quality and efficiency of healthcare services. Busy clinicians and administrators should never be concerned with the complexities that have historically been associated with integrating disparate healthcare applications.
Toward that end, Greenway has designed PrimeSUITE® around the concept of “liquid” data – that is, information that can be readily shared among care providers, using tools that are integrated into EHR functionality to make interaction with other systems transparent to end-users. We have partnered with systems integrators like Medicity, Axolotl and Orion — companies that specialize in the transparent networking of disparate health IT systems.
Greenway Medical Technologies is simply the easiest EHR company to partner with, allowing customers to protect their investments in legacy systems and transition to PrimeSUITE solutions when it makes sense to do so. The Greenway team has provided leadership in a variety of interoperability initiatives including Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE), NHIN Direct, CDC pilot programs and NHIN CONNECT. Our solutions support a variety of standards — HL7, CCD and CCR for patient summaries, XDR, XDS.b, and many more.
Greenway delivers on the promise of health information exchange, and our customers are testaments to that commitment. These organizations and others are providing higher care quality, and improving staff and patient satisfaction using Greenway’s integrated PrimeSUITE solutions.
