Project Anchor Phase I complete with secure transmission of patient data

from hospital EMR to web-based PHR

MALVERN, Pa., and PAWTUCKET, R.I., May 8 /PRNewswire/ --InterComponentWare Inc. (ICW), a global leader in eHealth technology solutions and Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island (MHRI) announced yesterday the completion of the first phase of Project Anchor, an initiative led by Dr. Charles Eaton, Director of the Center for Primary Care and Prevention, which tests an eHealth enabled patient-centered medical home model of care delivery.

Phase I of the multi-year Project Anchor involved a group of 200 diabetes patients from Memorial's Family Care Center and the transfer of key patient data from MHRI's GE Centricity Electronic Medical Record (EMR) through the ICW Professional Exchange Server (PXS) to the web-based ICW LifeSensor(R) Patient Health Record (PHR). The PXS is the vehicle by which data from any provider system can be securely communicated to the LifeSensor PHR and it is this element that makes Project Anchor substantially more robust than other PHR implementations.

With the information available in LifeSensor, patients can review their health data and begin tracking key measurements -- such as glucose, blood pressure, and weight -- on a routine basis. The purpose of the project is to help patients take charge of their health and communicate regularly with their primary care physician, who serves as team leader in managing the patient's comprehensive care, using data from all care providers interacting with the patient.
