Shared Health(R) Announces New Data Exchange Platform
Date:6/10/2008

Shared Health Clinical Xchange provides groundbreaking service capability

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Shared Health, Inc., Tennessee's largest public/private health information exchange (HIE), introduces a major system upgrade, the Shared Health Clinical Xchange platform, beginning June 26.

Shared Health, in partnership with industry leaders Allscripts(TM), IBM, Initiate Systems, MedAl, Oracle(R) Corporation and Orion Health Systems, is releasing the next generation Health Information Xchange which delivers value-based services to healthcare stakeholders. Shared Health Clinical Xchange offers health IT solutions that are flexible, innovative and interoperable in all health delivery environments, regardless of the resident health IT vendor.

Clinical Xchange improves the types of clinical information available to providers, helping physician practices operate more efficiently and deliver better overall patient care by merging key clinical data with administrative data to take practices "out of the silo". It also allows clinicians to interact with the HIE in the context of their existing workflow, which is critical for adoption. For payors and employers, Clinical Xchange supports proactive and preventive health initiatives -- such as care management, wellness and early intervention strategies where authorized and appropriate. Consumers will find it easier than ever to keep track of vital medical information with 24/7 access.

"The new Clinical Xchange platform is part of our commitment to continually deliver market-leading, problem-solving solutions that reduce inefficiencies and fragmentation in clinical information exchange," said Jana Skewes, president and chief executive officer.

Among the new platform features are an automated Problem List and Care Opportunities for clinicians and consumers. Coming in late fall will be Shared Health Condition Tracker and Clinical Insight, which will support physician-based practice population analytics and clinical registries.

"Clinical Xchange incorporates tools that are a direct feedback from two years of operational health information exchange experience," explained Bruce Taffel, M.D., chief medical officer. "Clinical Xchange dramatically improves the types of actionable clinical information available."

A web-based system, Clinical Xchange incorporates a new, improved Clinical Health Record(R) (CHR). The CHR is an electronic health record that aggregates and presents encounter data, medications, lab results, immunizations, allergies and vital signs to clinicians and other caregivers at the point of care. Because it is largely pre-populated, the CHR is one of the easiest ways to obtain a patient's clinical status.

Shared Health's system is currently used throughout Tennessee. Nearly two million Tennesseans are enrolled with Shared Health, including state Medicaid enrollees, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee commercial groups and large self-insured employers, and others. By year's end, Clinical Xchange will reach an additional 500,000 Tennesseans.
