MARINA DEL REY, Calif., March 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- A new partnership between 4medica and Zen Healthcare IT (Zen) promises to help health information exchanges (HIEs) equip healthcare organizations with the full picture of patient health needed for initiatives that range from combating opioid abuse to practicing value-based care. 4medica, the clinical data exchange pioneer, is on a mission to make "one patient, one record" the standard in healthcare. This strategic partnership with Zen, the HIE interoperability expert, will meld 4medica's big data master patient index solution with Zen's full integration and interoperability platform assuring the right data is matched to the right patient.
"Many ambitious undertakings in healthcare will be newly possible with this partnership. We are very pleased to partner with a company like Zen Healthcare IT that shares our vision—and expertise—in making insightful data available to people who can take life-changing action on it," said Gregory Church, President, 4medica.
Partnership merges patient data integrity with seamless data access
Data is abundant in healthcare, but trapped in different locations, systems and records. Given this, it has been difficult to gain insights into a patient's full medical history, which in turn has stalled many promising endeavors in healthcare. The partnership between 4medica and Zen aims to transcend these longstanding barriers.
Zen's Gemini Integration Platform for HIEs and other healthcare organizations simplifies interoperability by dramatically reducing the time and overhead required to acquire, transform, normalize and share healthcare information.
With 4medica's Big Data MPI, now HIES can also be sure this data is about the right patient. That's because the Big Data MPI matches patient records to the right patients with unbeatable accuracy, scale and speed. Built to process millions of identities and transactions a day, the 4medica solution is adept at identifying duplicate records, and eliminating all but the best one to use. Taking this several steps further, it also automatically updates fields where data is missing; a considerable time-saver for customers.
"Access to the right clinical data at the right time has a profound impact on care quality and patient safety. Advanced MPI tools from 4medica ensure the right patient information is aggregated, compiled and presented. That's what our clients need to make confident, informed care decisions," explained Jim Benson, CEO, Zen Healthcare IT.
Representatives from the two companies will be available at Booth #12447 in Hall G at HIMSS in Las Vegas, March 5—9, at the Venetian-Palazzo-Sands Expo Center. Additionally, 4medica is co-hosting a cocktail networking event with the Strategic Alliance of Health Information Exchanges (SHIEC) and the eHealth Initiative (eHI). Members of the media interested in meeting 4medica or Zen may contact Stephanie Janard at 704.418.9874 or [email protected].
