Connecting Health IT
Care delivery organizations, including accountable care organizations (ACOs), health information exchanges (HIEs) and Regional Health Information Organizations (RHIOs), all face the tremendous challenge of exchanging patient information across disparate healthcare organizations and technologies. This clinical data exchange can become problematic when providers and external specialty clinics have non-interoperable electronic health records (EHRs) or they are lacking basic digital health connectivity. 

Integrated EHR and Health Information Exchange Platform
4medica solves that problem with its unified iEHR platform for patient data exchange across inpatient and ambulatory care settings.

The CCHIT Certified® Complete iEHR system includes an integrated EHR and health information exchange for organizations of any size. Leveraging a browser-based interface for real-time access to ambulatory and inpatient data, the iEHR delivers one complete view of patient data across the continuum of care.

Exchanging Clinical Data Today
One of the biggest barriers to clinical data integration is the significant upfront cost of health information exchange systems and expensive custom interfaces to pharmacies, lab and radiology clinics. In addition, the resources required to plan, test and deploy the clinical data integration solution, as well as train administrative and clinical staff, delivers a hit to the bottom line that no organization needs in today's competitive healthcare environment.

In contrast, the cloud-based iEHR requires no special hardware or client-server software and can be deployed in under four months – without costly capital investments, ongoing maintenance concerns or workflow disruption.

Already have an Inpatient or Ambulatory EHR?
If healthcare facilities have already deployed a certified EHR, they can select from 4medica’s interoperable clinical data exchange applications for inpatient data integration, ePrescribing, laboratory outreach, radiology clinics, and pathology specialists to ensure total connectivity within and between care delivery organizations.

4medica iEHR for Meaningful Use

HIE standards require use of the continuity of care document (CCD), a function often lacking in many web-based and client-server EHR systems. With 4medica's iEHR platform, care delivery organizations gain this advanced collaborative care feature -- as well as health information exchange -- to help organizations meet meaningful use requirements, including expanded chronic disease management, patient referrals, seamless hospitalists to ambulatory-care doctor hand-offs, personal health record integration, and much more.

4medica's scalable iEHR platform also enables care delivery organizations to interoperate with the forthcoming NHIN gateway, providing the ultimate in care collaboration across the nation.
