WALLDORF, Germany and WAYNE, Pa., March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Global eHealth specialist InterComponentWare (ICW) has partnered with CitiusTech - a leading provider of healthcare technology and consulting services, for the expanded delivery of eHealth integration services. CitiusTech will work as a system integration partner of ICW and offer specialized integration services based on ICW's eHealth Framework. The partnership will also facilitate the development of additional frameworks, tools and utilities based on ICW technology.
ICW and CitiusTech have collaborated on the integration of ICW's Professional Exchange Server (PXS) - a physician portal for viewing aggregated medical data - with Cerner's PowerChart(R) EMR and Quest Diagnostic's Laboratory system for ICW client the Torrance Hospital Independent Practice Association (THIPA) in Torrance, CA.
