Noteworthy Medical Systems Demonstrates National Health Information Network (NHIN) Interoperability
Date:8/31/2009

PHOENIX, Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Noteworthy Medical Systems, Inc., a leading provider of connected healthcare technology solutions for the ambulatory sector, announced today its recent participation in the National Health Information Network (NHIN), which is being developed to provide a secure, nationwide, interoperable health information exchange among providers, consumers and others involved in supporting healthcare. Noteworthy was one of a select few companies requested by the Department of Energy to demonstrate NHIN interoperability using opensource toolsets. The NHIN is a critical part of the national health IT agenda and the recent stimulus bill because it will enable health information to follow the consumer, be available for clinical decision making, and support appropriate use of healthcare information beyond direct patient care so as to improve health.

In conjunction with Mirth Corporation, a leader in commercial open source healthcare information technology, Noteworthy connected its web-based electronic health record, NetPracticeEHRweb(TM), to the NHIN and provided a live demonstration to representatives from the Department of Energy and other federal NHIN partners. Users could search for, retrieve and display HL7 v3 (CDA) documents from California's Long Beach Network for Health, Orange County health information exchange, and Redwood MedNet health information exchange.

"Core to Noteworthy's product line is the ability to connect the myriad stakeholders of the U.S. healthcare system with the data critical to provide outstanding healthcare services to the consumer. Our participation in the NHIN demonstrations reflect Noteworthy's and CompuGROUP's commitment to generating secure, connected communities throughout the U.S. that enhance patient care through informed clinical decisions and reduced medical errors," said Susan Hagerty, Noteworthy's chief executive officer and chairman of the board.

According to Dr. David Blumenthal, National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, nationwide electronic health information exchange is critical because it provides the best opportunity for each patient to receive optimal care. "The technology will make patients' complete medical information securely and reliably available to healthcare providers where and when it is needed--when clinician and patient are together facing medical decisions that can make a lasting difference," Blumenthal said in a recent Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology update.

All Noteworthy products are being aligned with CompuGROUP's systemic use of best practices, which include feedback from customers and expert groups, as well as CompuGROUP's own experiences on a transnational basis. Noteworthy plans to continue working with Mirth to develop connectivity solutions, including the creation of a permanent connection to the NHIN that can be used by clients in any of Noteworthy's connected communities.
