Greenway Medical Technologies' EHR and Interoperability Solution To Be Included as Part of Detroit Medical Center's Health IT Infrastructure
Date:4/6/2009

Detroit Medical Center Adds Greenway's EHR Solution to its Portfolio of Strategic Offerings for its 3,000 Affiliated Physicians

CARROLLTON, Ga., April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Greenway Medical Technologies, a leading provider of an integrated electronic health record (EHR), practice management and interoperability solution, today announced a strategic deal with Detroit Medical Center (DMC) where physicians and care providers within the nine hospital network will have access to Greenway's flagship EHR solution, PrimeSuite(R), along with other solutions in Greenway's complete integrated physician's infrastructure.

DMC is expanding its portfolio of healthcare information technology (HIT) tools that DMC physicians can use while treating patients by adding Greenway(R) as a preferred solution to streamline clinical, financial and administrative workflows of the center's affiliated physicians and medical practices. DMC physicians, staff and other care providers selected Greenway as a preferred solution and as a part of this new relationship, DMC will be donating a percentage of the qualifying EHR technology to its affiliated physicians and medical practices under the recently modified Stark exceptions and anti-kickback safe harbors for donation of health information technology.

Along with the nine hospitals in the DMC organization, DMC also serves as the official healthcare provider of the Detroit Tigers, Detroit Red Wings, Detroit Pistons and several other professional sports franchises in the region. DMC admits more than 93,000 patients each year.

The partnership with DMC highlights Greenway's continued growth as healthcare providers begin utilizing government HIT and EHR adoption incentives to install health IT solutions that improve care, provide increased return on investment and help establish an interoperable healthcare system. These incentives (include/will soon include) financial reimbursement offered through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and the Physicians Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI).

In addition to PrimeSuite, DMC will utilize PrimeExchange(R), Greenway's standards-based interoperability engine that allows data to be electronically shared between physicians and care facilities within a DMC's patient healthcare continuum.

"By offering Greenway's solutions to care providers within our network, we add yet another tool to help eliminate medical errors and improve information exchange with our physicians," said Dr. Leland Babitch, chief medical information officer at the DMC. "Our goal is to offer a well-rounded array of tools that improve and enhance the ability of our physicians and staff to provide the highest level of patient care throughout our system and the community."

"We look forward to providing Detroit Medical Center with one of the HIT industry's leading EHR solutions in PrimeSuite," said Greg Shilling, vice president of business development for Greenway Medical Technologies "With the addition of our solutions, we help to further establish a paperless and interoperable system that enhances care quality, reduces medical errors and improves overall population health within the communities served by DMC."
