BOISE, Idaho and SARASOTA, Fla., Oct. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Kno2, the company that optimizes patient document exchange for everyone in healthcare, has announced that CoCENTRIX, Inc. has selected Kno2's interoperability platform for patient document exchange to drive enhanced clinical outcomes and Meaningful Use Stage 3 compliance support for its customers. CoCENTRIX, which was recently acquired by Canada-based N. Harris Computer Corporation, offers an electronic health record (EHR), practice management and case management solutions across health and human services, education and other community services providers.
"By partnering with CoCENTRIX, Kno2 continues to deliver on its mission to provide interoperable patient data exchange, regardless of where organizations reside within the healthcare continuum," Kno2 CEO Jon Elwell said. "Supplying a cost-effective, easy-to-implement solution that mirrors existing clinical workflows is critical as provider organizations of all sizes face upcoming regulatory requirements for digital document exchange, including those associated with Meaningful Use Stage 3 attestation."
CoCENTRIX's flagship product, the CoCENTRIX Coordinated Care Platform (CoCENTRIXccp), is an ONC-ACB certified EHR that automates clinical, financial and operational workflows to efficiently deliver full spectrum health and human services (HHS). The partnership with Kno2 further strengthens CoCENTRIX's ability to provide continuity in care across the consumer's health records in HHS, primary care, corrections and education—facilitating the delivery of a multi-agency, multi-provider and multi-level clinical integration model.
Previously faced with incorporating hybrid models required by providers still using traditional fax, CoCENTRIX's customers can now leverage the Kno2-powered secure digital exchange platform, offering cloud fax, Direct message, document query and other advanced exchange methods, to improve clinical efficiencies and care coordination across the CoCENTRIX care network.
"Kno2 is truly breaking the cost curve by offering an affordable, effective and simple solution to meet the market and regulatory demands for interoperable data exchange," Mark Bennett, Executive VP of Harris Public Health Solutions, said. "Our integrated technologies extend the value of our CoCENTRIX EHR, providing all methods of exchange within a single workflow. This simplicity is exactly what providers have been asking for: easy access to the patient information they need to deliver the highest quality of care throughout the healthcare ecosystem."
Reflecting the two companies' shared mission of driving quality care delivery, Elwell will provide the keynote address at Harris' Healthcare's upcoming user conference, scheduled for October 25-27.
