Carefx Delivers Expert Insights on Health Data Sharing, Collaboration, Quality and Meaningful Use
Date:3/1/2010

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Carefx, a leading provider of interoperable workflow solutions, announced today the availability of a new position paper revealing how health IT leaders can advance health information exchange, manage care transitions and close information gaps between systems, departments and facilities through collaboration and clinical quality improvement strategies.  The position paper will be available online at http://www.YourCarefx.com and at booth (#6008) at the annual Healthcare Information Management and Systems Society (HIMSS) conference, March 1-4, 2010, in Atlanta.

"Focusing on health information exchange, Carefx's HIMSS10 position paper provides a framework for sharing how the company's Fusionfx solution suite delivers actionable, patient-relevant information through the aggregation of data from multiple systems.  Fusionfx facilitates health information collection and sharing, as well as care coordination and meaningful use," says Andrew Hurd, Chairman and CEO of Carefx.  "This position paper and several forthcoming Issue Briefs reinforce Carefx's commitment to obtain strategic advice from leading health IT experts and create roadmaps for 'simply advancing healthcare' through health information exchange."  

Carefx's newest paper – "Health Information Exchange: From Meaningful Use to Healthcare Transformation" – confronts the challenges of health information exchange, medication and allergy reconciliation, quality measurement, monitoring and reporting, collaboration and referral management.  Among the experts featured in the new paper, and soon-to-be-released Issue Briefs, are Marc Holland, President and Managing Director, System Research Services; Lynne Dunbrack, Program Director, Health Provider Research, IDC Health Insights; David Hansen, healthcare consultant, economist, entrepreneur and author; Jennifer Covich Bordenick, CEO, eHealth Initiative; and Barry Runyon, Research Vice President, Gartner Research.  

The position paper predicts that clinicians will soon be able to view real-time patient data – demographics, compliance, patient safety and quality – from a variety of sources in a single view with real-time quality compliance alerts, medication reconciliation and electronic referral.  This enhances clinicians' ability to keep tabs on patients and make more accurate, evidence-based clinical decisions.  Ultimately, however, the quality of health information exchange is likely to depend on the creativity and commitment of those who exchange data and require "cultural change, communication, conflict resolution and care coordination and re-design," according to the paper.  

In the coming months, Carefx will release an Issue Brief on electronic referral management, revealing how providers can transform a burdensome, paper-based process into a streamlined workflow that enables physician collaboration, improves quality and safety and increases referral revenues.  A second Issue Brief on medication reconciliation will demonstrate why providers must close medication loops at key care transitions, including reconciliation of a patient's discharge medications into the ambulatory electronic medical record (EMR).
