Alere Accountable Care Solutions to Provide Health Information Network to Children's Care Alliance for Underserved Children
Date:7/9/2013

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Children's Care Alliance (CCA) is working closely with Alere Accountable Care Solutions (ACS) to create a health information exchange (HIE) for underserved children in the Lehigh Valley area of northeastern Pennsylvania. Backed by the support of the business community, the HIE represents a first-of-its-kind collaboration between healthcare organizations and the education community and is poised to move toward improving the healthcare of children in the region.

"Many children living in this area suffer from chronic conditions including asthma and obesity. The health care systems and community organizations need to rally together," says Mike Cirba, CIO, Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network and current CCA Chairperson. "The problem is that care delivery is disconnected.  Individual health records are scattered among multiple access points of care.  And, unfortunately, vital clinical information is often not available to the local physicians, health systems, and the school health rooms that see these kids. By working with Alere ACS, we are committed to bringing key clinical data sets together for clinicians across multiple organizations."

The Alere ACS HIE technology will allow seamless exchange of student electronic health records between different hospital emergency rooms, clinics, physician offices and school districts in Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley.   The HIE, branded as the Virtual Health Village, is expected to help clinicians more expediently access needed information, which should also result in the improved coordination of care.   

Twenty-seven percent of the 32,000 Bethlehem Area and Allentown school district students change schools each y
