Phoebe Putney Health System has selected Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) to implement its Provider Portal solution to link physicians and other clinicians throughout one of Georgia’s largest health systems.

A component of Harris' FusionFX ® suite of advanced healthcare software, the Provider Portal solution will provide a comprehensive, up-to-date view of a patient's medical record regardless of where the patient is seen in the Phoebe Putney Health System. This will enable physicians to deliver the most efficient care by integrating patient information in real-time.

"Harris’ FusionFX Provider Portal will help us achieve our vision of providing patient-centric care by presenting a single, complete view of a patient's medical history. It will enable our physicians to make the best decisions at the point of care with the most timely and complete patient data possible," said Jesse Diaz, chief information officer, Phoebe Putney Health System.

Phoebe Putney Health System expects to implement Harris’ FusionFX Provider Portal in 2015 in conjunction with electronic health record implementations to provide a seamless view across the acute and ambulatory settings.
