However, we believe that eClinicalWorks is the first to offer one-click capabilities and that its implementation with full integration at every level on the BHIX HealthShare-based network is the first in New York City," Koch said.
One option is through single sign-on access to the BHIX system.
At the InterSystems booth, information about an individual patient will be gathered dynamically via HealthShare from data sources within BHIX
, Medicaid, Surescripts, and simulations of other New York communities.
By spurring the adoption of a common health care information platform, supported by shared policies, as well as privacy and security standards, the BHIX has created a sustainable and replicable business model.
BHIX empowers consumers to allow doctors, nurses and other health care professionals more timely access to their electronic health information.
We are committed to the vision of the Statewide Health Information Network of New York, (SHIN-NY) as articulated in the State's HEAL-NY Phase V program," said Irene Koch, BHIX Executive Director.
Laying the foundation for BHIX to incorporate clinical decision support analytics and facilitate IT-enabled care management services directly into the clinical workflow.
By removing gaps in patient health information at transition points across care settings, BHIX
seeks to enhance the quality, safety and efficiency of healthcare and to improve patient and provider satisfaction.
Our goal for the BHIX is to provide exceptional patient care and service through the strategic deployment of technology, and we believe MedPlus is the right vendor to help us achieve this goal.
The BHIX exchange, which is to be operational in July 2008, will employ MedPlus technologies to allow BHIX partners to aggregate and manage patient data in their own clinician practices, while also giving individual physicians and healthcare workers who are members of the BHIX access to patient data at different care settings.
Initiate's technology will help BHIX create the foundational master person index, enabling patient identity resolution and linking of patients across multiple sources of data.
We are building a better healthcare system and providing the groundwork for the eventual interoperability between BHIX and the other established RHIOs in the State of New York.
