“By partnering with Summit Healthcare, HealthAlliance Hospital will be better positioned to provide our patients a more positive integrated healthcare experience we can all be proud of."
(PRWEB) October 27, 2014
HealthAlliance Hospital, part of UMass Memorial Healthcare System, is a not-for-profit, full service, acute care hospital that serves the communities in North Central Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire. Priding themselves on offering patients direct access to advanced medical technology, it’s no wonder why they chose Summit Healthcare to help streamline their physician office integration efforts. They needed a dynamic system that would help them establish a secure connection between the hospital and their physician partners.
In evaluating possible vendor partnerships, they turned to Summit Healthcare. With an established integration experience, Summit Healthcare has the ability to tackle even the most complex workflows associated with bi-directional physician integration.
HealthAlliance and Summit Healthcare will be working together over the next few months to integrate all of their physician offices bi-directionally through the use of Summit Provider Exchange. The technology will enable HealthAlliance Hospital to quickly process and accept orders inbound from any of their physician offices and route any critical results back. Bi-directional orders and results will include LAB, MIC, BBK, PTH and RAD.
Summit Provider Exchange provides patient matching capabilities and in the event of a discrepancy, will flag the order and place it into a hold queue. Enhanced accessibility allows users to modify and re-submit orders, as well as view the status of results sent back to any physician office. End users are also able to match orders to patients using an intuitive click-to-match function. This process helps to avoid the pitfalls of duplicate patients, and eliminate unnecessary communications with physician offices.
“By partnering with Summit Healthcare, HealthAlliance Hospital will be better positioned to provide our patients a more positive integrated healthcare experience we can all be proud of,” said Robert Dullea, Corporate Vice President and CIO, HealthAlliance Hospital.
"Summit Healthcare is pleased to announce our partnership with HealthAlliance Hospital to support their physician EMR integration efforts. The Summit Provider Exchange technology solution is emerging as a leader in the marketplace and we look forward to the opportunity to extend this technology offering to HealthAlliance Hospital,” said Ted Rossi, CEO, Summit Healthcare.
