Greenway Medical Technologies Continues to Champion Interoperability Efforts with Extensive Participation in HIMSS' 2009 Interoperability Showcase
Date:4/2/2009

Greenway Focuses on Solidifying Interoperability Standards within HIT Solutions to Help Improve Patient Care Throughout the Nation

CARROLLTON, Ga., April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Greenway Medical Technologies Inc., a leading provider of an integrated electronic health record (EHR), practice management and interoperability solution has announced its leadership in the Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) and Integrating the Health Enterprise (IHE) interoperability demonstrations to be held during the annual HIMSS conference in Chicago between April 4-8, 2009. Healthcare spending is now 18 percent of America's gross domestic product (GDP) and systemic interoperability is a key component to reducing the rate at which healthcare costs are increasing while saving lives and increasing care quality.

Greenway's participation in the Interoperability Showcase at HIMSS marks the second year in a row the company has played a leading role to progress the industry's efforts. HIMSS helps promote interoperability advancements made within the healthcare industry that play a vital role in creating a nationwide system through which patient health information can be securely, efficiently and electronically exchanged. With this recent signing of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), these interoperability efforts are crucial steps in helping to establish widespread health information networks and better define for care providers the parameters surrounding "meaningful use."

During the HIMSS conference, Greenway(R) will demonstrate how its flagship integrated EHR, practice management and interoperability solution, PrimeSuite(R), meets several key functionalities that serve as the framework of an interoperable healthcare system.

One of the key components of interoperability is the ability to share information amongst disparate systems. Through the HIMSS demonstrations, Greenway will promote its functionality in Cross-Enterprise Document Sharing (XDS), which focuses on improvements made to medical repositories and registries. XDS ensures that repositories store documents in a consistent manner while the registry, which stores information about these documents, can be more easily located, selected and retrieved. XDS accepts a wide variety of documentation formats for medical records, without regard to content or design, enabling the integration process to function more smoothly and efficiently.

Greenway will also participate in several Retrieve Form for Data Capture (RFD) demonstrations, which set a standard for information exchange by employing a uniform method through which data is collected and shared. RFD facilitates the development of real world implementations or research integration into healthcare workflow, which will ultimately lead to a more seamless integration of healthcare. The data that is collected benefits the researchers, scientists and physicians who are trying to better understand and combat health issues and diseases.

"Greenway continues to serve as a leader in the push toward achieving President Barack Obama's goal in creating an interoperable healthcare system," said Justin Barnes, vice president of marketing and government affairs at Greenway Medical Technologies. "As Greenway and other EHR companies participate in these demonstrations and start to deploy in our communities, we move even closer to establishing a system that provides physicians with the tools necessary to provide the highest level of care. Such a system can facilitate patient health information availability to care providers at a moment's notice without regard to geographical limitations, costly system interfaces or time constraints."
