Healthcare Informatics Magazine has announced the 2011 HCI 100 list, ranking Orion Health number 64. Orion Health, the largest independently owned Health Information Exchange (HIE) company, has been ranked on the list since 2008 and climbed 10 spots this year from their 2010 placement.

Healthcare Informatics Magazine annually releases the list of the top 100 Healthcare IT companies by revenue. Orion Health’s strong performance for fiscal year 2010-11 produced 44 percent revenue growth, and an increase in staff numbers by 50 percent across its 11 global offices. In large part, the success of the company’s Health Information Exchange platform and its Rhapsody Integration Engine has fueled this expansion.

President Orion Health North America, Paul Viskovich says that organizations today and the communities they serve already have significant, current technology in place and their interest of late is in getting more value out of those investments. Against that mandate, Orion Health’s integration and exchange capabilities have made a lot of economic and strategic sense to healthcare providers.

“When reviewing this year’s HCI 100 list, only 2 other organizations moved forward more positions than Orion Health. We’re gratified, however this is an honor best laid at the feet of Orion Health’s past and current clients. Each customer has advanced our perspective, fine-tuned our offerings, and expanded our capabilities in some or many ways. As a result, there is outsized demand for our solutions,” says Mr. Viskovich.

The company’s commercial success has allowed greater investment in product research and development, offering a greater depth of solutions for public health, disease management and the enhanced physician portal. Orion Health’s commitment to developing Rhapsody Connect, specifically targeting the public health sector has increased Orion Health’s market, with 48 of the 50 US states using the Rhapsody to aid in their public health reporting solutions. Orion Health Rhapsody Connect is the only innovative solution specifically designed for public health that automates reporting to provide fast, secure transmission of data between providers, public health agencies and other trading partners for effective health information exchange.
