We are expecting that both eHealth Access Record Retrieval Service and eHealth Connect Diagnostic Image Exchange will see continued dramatic growth, in an environment where the exchange and management of digital records is directly in-line with improving the efficiency of health care and supported by the current efforts of the U.S. administration
Rochester, NY (PRWEB) March 2, 2010
eHealth Global Technologies, Inc. (eHGT), a leading medical records and imaging services provider, announced today that revenues nearly doubled in 2009 compared to 2008, and that it has secured a multi-million dollar investment from Milestone Venture Partners and Stonehenge Growth Capital to support continued growth.
Moving into 2010, company officials said, eHGT is experiencing monthly double-digit revenue growth because of strong market demand for two products.
- eHealth Access™ Record Retrieval Service, which gathers external medical records and images and supplies them directly to hospitals in a consistent digital format. Twenty-eight of the nation’s top 100 hospitals already are using the service, and eHGT continues to add leading health care institutions across the country.
- eHealth Connect ™ Diagnostic Image Exchange, which provides online access to radiology and cardiology images from multiple PACS and providers across a community or integrated delivery network. The company has a solid pipeline of communities across the nation interested in adopting this unique service.
Much of eHGT’s growth has come through the addition of top national and regional medical centers, whose oncology, cardiology, neurology and surgery departments are utilizing the first-of-its-kind Access record retrieval service. These customers are discovering the ability to speed patient care, reduce duplicate exams and procedures, and save costs. “In addition, our customers are linking their information systems into our record retrieval process, creating a very efficient round-trip process for requesting outside records in a HIPAA-compliant manner, then delivering these records digitally into their EMR systems and PACS,” stated Michael Margiotta, CEO of eHGT. “As Meaningful Use guidelines are finalized, our ability to ensure that all the relevant problem lists and active diagnoses are available, including those from external sources, will make the service even more valuable,” he added.
Stonehenge Growth Capital’s and Milestone Venture Partners’ multi-million dollar investment into eHealth Global will provide the capital required to grow the company to its next level. “We are expecting that both eHealth Access Record Retrieval Service and eHealth Connect Diagnostic Image Exchange will see continued dramatic growth, in an environment where the exchange and management of digital records is directly in-line with improving the efficiency of health care and supported by the current efforts of the U.S. administration,” stated Richard Dumler, Partner, Milestone Venture Partners. “We are excited to be partnered with eHGT and support their efforts to grow the company by expanding their unique abilities in the marketplace to share health care information thus improving patient care and lowering overall health care costs,” added Brian Model, Managing Director, Stonehenge Growth Capital.
