Verizon provides health information exchange offering to Vantage HGT

Clinical dashboard, record locator service, cross-enterprise patient index and secure clinical messaging platform

By CBR Staff Writer

Vantage HGT Regional Health Information Organisation, a health information exchange in western Pennsylvania, has selected the Verizon Health Information Exchange to enable health care professionals from member hospitals to facilitate the secure retrieval and sharing of patient clinical data.

The new Verizon-provided platform will offer health care professionals an effective way to obtain a more complete view of a patient’s health history which will enable better coordination of care, reduce the potential for medical errors, and help control costs by eliminating duplicative testing.

In addition, the Verizon platform also enables members to retail their systems, processes and workflows, thereby reducing the need for additional capital expenditures.

The Vantage HGT Regional Health Information Organisation currently comprises six hospitals serving a population of nearly 2.3 million residents.

Verizon Health Information Exchange is delivered via Verizon’s cloud-computing platform and enables healthcare organisations of all sizes and types to overcome the long-standing obstacle of incompatible health IT platforms and software used to store data in various formats.

Verizon Business said that its technology and service providers MEDfx, MedVirginia and Oracle are currently working with the Vantage HGT Regional Health Information Organisation to implement fully integrated features such as a clinical dashboard, record locator service, cross-enterprise patient index and secure clinical messaging platform.
