Five Hospitals to Share Patient Data: ICW Connects Regional Medical Centers and University Facility
Date:11/26/2007

MALVERN, Pa., Nov. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical staff at Heidelberg University Hospital, Germany, and the hospitals of the Health Centers Rhine-Neckar will soon routinely exchange comprehensive patient data. Driving the seamless exchange of information between facilities and care providers is the hospital connectivity solution Professional Exchange Server (PXS), from the eHealth specialist InterComponentWare AG (ICW).

The scope of the Rhine-Neckar project is similar to Health Information Exchange (HIE) initiatives being launched in the United States. In total, the undertaking involves five hospitals, including Heidelberg, which is one of Germany's largest comprehensive care facilities. Information is fed to the new inter-facility electronic patient record from existing IT and imaging systems in the facilities. A high-performance Master Patient Index (MPI) is utilized to reliably and safely identify patients and enable access to medical information.

Prof. Bjorn Bergh, MD, Director of Information and Medical Technology at Heidelberg University Hospital, comments: "We are pursuing two main goals with this project: Facilitating the access to relevant information of mutual patients and actively including patient participation in the treatment process. In both instances, we have found the ideal partner in ICW and have jointly developed a pragmatic concept to help us achieve these goals without interfering with existing systems."

Phase two of the project will network office-based physicians with patients via LifeSensor(R), ICW's Web-based, patient-centric personal health record that collects and communicates patient information. Use of LifeSensor is intended to improve the quality of care and support disease management programs. It will also enable the citizens to improve their personal health
