Greenway Health rolls out bi-directional health data exchange
- Greenway Health has built what it calls the nation's first bi-directional EHR data exchange project.
- The project connects ambulatory clinics, hospitals, and health plans in the Portland, OR area. It marks a collaboration between Greenway, its customer Premise Health, and ambulatory and acute-care providers that utilize products from Greenway and Epic System.
- In the first six months of going live, more than 26,000 data sets of patient information have been exchanged between participating organizations, powered by Greenway’s EHR.
Everybody’s talking about interoperability, but where do you get it? In a recent interview, Mark Janiszewski, executive vice president of product management for Greenway Health, shared his opinions on the state of health data interoperability.
“With multiplying factors like value-based reimbursement and reporting on quality, it has really accelerated the demand for discrete data to be exchanged and aggregated. We're catching up from a tech perspective, but we're still a little behind. The demand for interoperability is outpacing our ability to deliver it — especially in a cost-effective and efficient manner,” he said in the interview.
According to Greenway, this project is the nation’s first bi-directional health data exchange project. In addition to Greenway’s EHR product, the project leveraged Greenway’s cloud-based interoperability product, and eHealth Exchange, the nation’s largest public-private health data exchange.
“Working together, we can drive the vision of system-wide improvements in health outcomes, improve the patient experience and reduce the costs of providing care by promoting collaboration across the medical neighborhood,” said Premise Health Vice President of Application and Delivery Will Rice in a prepared statement.
