Greenway And Epic EHR Interoperability Helps Mothers And Newborns Receive Higher-Quality, Safer Care

Stocks in this article: GWAY

Greenway Medical Technologies and Epic Systems have achieved interoperability between their solutions to improve care coordination for the thousands of patients two of their customers in Lancaster, PA treat in common. The electronic health record (EHR) systems of both companies are exchanging industry-standard Continuity of Care Documents (CCDs) between a large OB/GYN practice and the local hospital-based health system, securely sharing vital information to better coordinate care in their community of health.

This interoperability is the result of a successful “data liquidity” project initiated at the request of Greenway customer Doctors May·Grant Associates, the leading OB/GYN practice in Lancaster, PA, and Epic customer Lancaster General Health’s Women’s & Babies Hospital. The new data-sharing capability, which can be quickly replicated in other settings, delivers significantly more-effective care coordination for over 2,500 patients of Doctors May·Grant whose babies are delivered at Lancaster General Health (LG Health) each year.

“We wanted caregivers to have the most accurate, up-to-date information for every patient, whether they were in the office or the hospital,” said Mona S. Engle, RN, May·Grant practice administrator. “We’re fortunate that our EHR providers, Greenway and Epic, see interoperability as an appropriate way to work together to ultimately enhance patient care.”

Greenway has long led in interoperability, championing the importance of a medical practice implementing the EHR that best suits its unique needs, and a community hospital or health system implementing the EHR that best suits its unique needs, without causing a disconnect in patient care coordination.

The architecture of Greenway’s PrimeSUITE® simplifies the exchange of data with dissimilar EHR systems, with a bidirectional, hub-based exchange that supports all industry standards. The main development task in the project for May·Grant and LG Health was for Epic to create a connection to PrimeSUITE to enable the data flow. With that connection now in place, the Greenway and Epic systems freely exchange CCDs, an industry standard created to promote sharing of such commonly needed patient information as allergies, medications with dosages, problem lists and past health status.
