Interoperable Clinical Data Exchange

Hospitals and health systems need clinical data integration now – both within their own walls and with external specialty clinics, referring physicians, accountable care organizations (ACOs) and health information exchanges (HIEs).

Without an interoperable health data exchange solution, healthcare organizations often resort to deploying expensive electronic health record (EHR) interfaces or using paper-based clinical data exchange, increasing the risk of errors and wasting limited staff resources.

Healthcare Connectivity: Easy-to-Implement,
With 4medica's Integrated Electronic Health Record (iEHR), the leading clinical data exchange platform, healthcare organizations can ensure health connectivity with existing EHR, practice management and other healthcare technology systems. The iEHR's unique architecture sits on top of hospitals' and health systems' existing technologies to easily exchange patient information across disparate care providers -- whether or not facilities have an EHR -- to promote collaborative and continuous patient care.

And thanks to its cloud software-as-a-service (SaaS) design, the iEHR can be installed quickly, seamlessly and with minimal upfront costs, for the ultimate in accessibility, scalability and performance.

Meaningful Use Compliance
4medica Inpatient Cloud iEHR (Integrated Electronic Health Record) with 4medica's Integration Engine to connect Ambulatory EMRs, 10.11, and 4medica Ambulatory Cloud iEHR (Integrated Electronic Health Record) version 10.4 are 2011/2012 compliant and have been certified by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-ATCB, in accordance with the applicable certification criteria for Hospitals and Eligible Providers (respectively) adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

This certification does not represent an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services or guarantee the receipt of incentive payments. The unique certification numbers for each product are CC-1112-401670-1 (Inpatient Cloud iEHR) and CC-1112- 401670-2 (Ambulatory Cloud iEHR).

The iEHR supports patient referrals and continuity of care documents (CCD), the standard format for today's health information exchange among providers and HIEs. And, the clinical integration system facilitates patient empowerment, a key tenet of meaningful use, by receiving and storing personal health record information, which can then be transmitted to personal health services.

With an eye toward future nationwide clinical data exchange, 4medica's iEHR includes connectivity to the NHIN gateway, ensuring full interoperability with the federal standard.
