(ICW), a global leader in eHealth technology solutions, announced today its membership with the Center for Health Transformation (The Center), a collaborative organization of private and public sector organizations focused on improving health by promoting the adoption of more intelligent healthcare systems in the U.S. founded by former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Newt Gingrich.

ICW CEO Jeremy P. Coote explains the synergy between ICW and The Center: "ICW has delivered secure, intelligent, and transparent medical information sharing between healthcare stakeholders and with the patient in Europe. The Center's quest for intelligent healthcare begins with sharing relevant, aggregated patient data, across providers to ensure coordination of treatment and to reduce unnecessary tests and procedures. ICW offers the mature, fully integrated technology to accomplish this goal and we will share our experience with The Center's members."

The Center's membership includes leaders from all areas of the U.S. healthcare marketplace: payers, providers, hospitals, technology companies, large pharmaceutical companies, biotechnology and diagnostic companies, along with policy organizations, not-for-profit associations and state representatives. David Merritt, Project Director for The Center, describes the membership as "An amalgamation of consulting, advocacy, think tank, public affairs, training and implementation."

The Center's CEO Nancy Desmond notes why ICW is a good fit for The Center, "ICW has helped countries in Europe advance the quality of care delivered to patients by seamlessly networking all constituencies: the doctor, the pharmacy, the lab, the insurance company and the patient. What we are striving for, they have already put in motion."

ICW has successfully deployed its eHealth solutions throughout Europe. Key initiatives include eHealth Card projects in Germany and Bulgaria, a PHR offered to the 7 million members of Germany's largest insurer, a multi- hospital HIE implementation, and numerous projects with insurers, physician practice groups and hospitals. U.S. projects for ICW include the implementation of an integrated electronic patient record (EPR) to the 400+ physicians in the Torrance Hospital Independent Practice Association Medical Group (THIPA). Subsequent implementations at THIPA include ICW's Care and Disease Manager and a networked personal health record (PHR), LifeSensor(R). ICW also has a project underway at Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island in conjunction with Brown University's Center for Primary Care. The project is studying improvements in patient care and patient safety that result from improved patient-provider communications and information sharing.
