Shared Health Partners With State of Tennessee to Provide Electronic Health Information for Statewide Health Information Network
Date:3/3/2008

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Shared Health, Inc., provider of secure health information technology solutions, has partnered with the state of Tennessee to provide its electronic health record solutions and ePrescribe to the State's new statewide health information network called the Tennessee Information Network or TNII (http://www.TNII.net/ehealth).

Shared Health's partnership with the State of Tennessee began with its offering of the electronic health record for all TennCare beneficiaries. That partnership has now expanded to include collaboration with the TNII initiative.

As the first content providers for TNII, Shared Health and the Tennessee Department of Health will enable doctors to access patient medical histories, immunizations, and even prescribe medications electronically through the secure broadband connectivity. Analysis by the state concluded that many physicians did not have broadband connectivity to facilitate the movement of large images and telemedicine applications. TNII's intent is to offer all providers with appropriate and secure broadband connectivity.

"By bringing secure broadband over a dedicated healthcare network, clinicians across the state will have an additional option of accessing Shared Health's rich content. This could mean faster diagnosis time, less laboratory tests and better outcomes," said Jana Skewes, president and chief executive officer of Shared Health. "Through our existing partnership with more than two million Tennessee consumers who are already enrolled in Shared Health's Health Information Exchange, we are pleased to join the TNII network."

This and other eHealth initiatives in Tennessee are being led by the Governor's eHealth Advisory Council.

"We are pleased to have Shared Health provide their services over TNII, so that all licensed Tennessee clinicians have the opportunity to connect to this interoperable and valuable set of health care data," said Antoine Agassi, chairman, eHealth Council.
