“A interoperable CCD is the currency of HIE exchange going forward,” said Gerard Reeder, President of EHR Doctors.
(PRWEB) April 23, 2012
In a multi-vendor environment, where best-of-breed application software is purchased because of its high level of usability, interoperability is extremely important.
The EHR Doctors CCD Generator, when completely integrated into a Hospital system, identifies, manages, and configures the critical pieces of a Patient’s personal electronic medical information into a machine-processable, human-readable, holistic format. The CCD generator provides hospitals with a truly interoperable health record that can easily be shared between locations for purposes ranging from transitions in care to releases of information for adjudication of insurance claims and audits.
EHR Doctors successfully implemented the CCD generator into Ministry Health Care multi–vendor environment which includes GE Centricity Enterprise and Meditech clinical systems.
Steve Pelton, Vice President, Enterprise Applications at Ministry Health Care found: “During Ministry’s self-certification process we were looking for a CCD which was ONC-ATB certified, capable of being quickly implemented, feature-rich, and vendor neutral. The ability to query and receive a patient’s summary record from multiple EHR systems (MEDITECH, GE, etc) is a key step on Ministry’s meaningful use roadmap.”
The capability to generate a CCD between disparate systems is the foundation for Health Information Exchange (HIE). “A interoperable CCD is the currency of HIE exchange going forward,” said Gerard Reeder, President of EHR Doctors.
