PLANO, Texas, Aug. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Sequoia Project, an independent advocate for the implementation of a secure, interoperable, nationwide health information exchange (HIE), has validated Jiva™ HIE Connect 6.0.2 from ZeOmega® Inc. for use with the eHealth Exchange. As a validated solution, Jiva HIE Connect can now exchange data with the largest HIE in the United States.
The Sequoia Project developed the eHealth Exchange Product Testing Program to provide a high degree of assurance that participating systems conform to eHealth Exchange Performance Specifications and can interoperate with other systems without error or further customization. Having successfully passed the program's rigorous conformance tests, Jiva HIE Connect now belongs to this select group of validated solutions.
"eHealth Exchange validation represents a major milestone for Jiva HIE Connect," says Sam Rangaswamy, founder and chief executive officer at ZeOmega. "Organizations using Jiva now have a secure, trusted, and interoperable connection with the nation's premier data-sharing network, used by nearly half of U.S. hospitals and multiple federal agencies."
Originally developed under the oversight of the United States Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), the eHealth Exchange comprises a rapidly growing coalition of federal agencies and nonfederal organizations striving to improve patient care and public health reporting through a nationwide HIE. The exchange currently operates in all 50 states, supporting the care of more than 100 million patients. The U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, and U.S. Social Security Administration all currently use the eHealth Exchange.
