Greenway Medical Technologies, Inc., today announced pilot integration of Microsoft HealthVault data aggregation and mobility to providers utilizing the company’s electronic health record (EHR), practice management and interoperability solution PrimeSUITE®.
Through PrimeSUITE’s integrated and secure online portal, PrimePATIENT®, patients can create and access a HealthVault account to gather, store and manage centralized and sharable health information.
The integration provides patients with digital health history forms to establish the HealthVault clinical record. Following each patient visit, entire clinical summaries or chosen elements can be sent from PrimeSUITE into HealthVault through standards-based Continuity of Care Document (CCD) transport. Patients can merge the discrete data with compatible medical device, home healthcare and mobile application data to create a broader or tailored clinical picture.
“Mobile, accessible and liquid data are prerequisites for today’s care coordination,” said Greenway® President and CEO Tee Green, “and it’s time to recognize patients as consumers of healthcare best practices. They are demanding it, and payers are increasingly linking patient engagement and empowerment into quality reporting and data exchange criteria in meaningful use and accountable care programs. We are committed to providing these innovations, and are proud to announce this collaboration with Microsoft.”The combined data is sharable with other providers regardless of EHR systems if HealthVault integration is also present, or through permissible PrimeSUITE data exchange directly into EHRs and health information exchanges. “We are incredibly excited about this new capability and our relationship with Greenway,” said Sean Nolan, Microsoft HealthVault distinguished engineer. “With more than three hundred live applications across the web and mobile devices, HealthVault can be a truly transformational tool to create more informed and engaged patients, but it only works when people have access to their clinical information. Greenway has made it easy for their providers to deliver exactly that. This is a huge win for everybody involved, and we can’t wait to see it rolling out across the Greenway customer base.”
