Harris Corporation Leverages CONNECT Solution to Enhance Patient Information Exchange Between DoD and VA

WASHINGTON, June 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS), as a subcontractor to Evolvent Technologies, Inc., is helping to improve the quality of military patient care provided by enhancing the capabilities of the Bidirectional Health Information Exchange (BHIE) interface.  The exchange is a health enterprise integration capability employed by the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to securely share patient information between agencies.

One important, new feature is the first-time ability to transfer medical imagery and associated studies over the exchange, along with artifacts from the DoD's global Healthcare Artifact and Image Management Solution system.  The term "artifacts" refers to any type of captured image other than diagnostic medical imagery.  This includes electronic scans of paper medical records, photographs and handwritten clinician notes, as well as electronic attachments from files or images and other documents related to patient care.

"Harris is committed to delivering enterprise solutions to improve the quality and efficiency of care delivered to our service men and women," said Jim Traficant, vice president and general manager, Harris Healthcare Solutions.  "As service members move between the DoD and the VA systems, their healthcare information will move with them assuring better care and improved patient outcomes.  Deployment of these enterprise integration capabilities supports President Obama's objective mandate for virtual, integration of the Military Health System and Veterans Affairs electronic health records."

Harris is leveraging its open-source CONNECT solution to modernize the BHIE and standardize its data exchange models as part of the BHIE Functional System Enhancement program.  The open-source CONNECT software enables healthcare organizations to participate in the Nationwide Health Information Network for efficient and secure patient information exchange.

Harris Healthcare Solutions provides secure enterprise intelligence solutions and services for government and commercial customers – including systems integration, intelligent infrastructure, advanced visualization and display, enterprise digital content management and IT solutions.  A leader in federal healthcare IT integration, Harris products, systems and services improve healthcare outcomes by assuring that critical medical and benefits information is delivered with security and privacy to the right person, on the right device, at the point of care.
