Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital is dedicated to improving patient outcomes and service through the use of the latest information technology. As part of this commitment, the 238-bed community hospital is implementing solutions that enhance Direct Data Exchange between caregivers and the systems they use across the facility. Summit Care Exchange from Summit Healthcare advances this initiative by automatically sending continuation of care documents (CCDs), reports, orders and other patient data to providers.

“Summit Care Exchange makes sure we meet the Meaningful Use requirement for message distribution notifications,” said Tito Perez, Information Services Manager at Henry Mayo. “It’s enabling us to send information to our physicians from multiple systems via one secure electronic channel, which is more convenient for them.”

Using Summit Care Exchange, Henry Mayo integrates patient clinical summaries originating from several healthcare IT systems, including MEDITECH, and sends the data securely to providers across its network. In addition to enabling direct messaging between the hospital and physicians to support transitions of care, Summit Care Exchange provides a central place for monitoring CCD interface traffic. Working with an experienced Health Information Service Provider (HISP) like Summit Healthcare removes the burden of integrating multiple applications from Henry Mayo’s IS team.

“We’re proud to help hospitals like Henry Mayo meet their data exchange and compliance needs with Summit Care Exchange,” said Summit Healthcare CEO Ted Rossi. “The solution also overcomes integration challenges and, most importantly, improves clinical decision making and patient care.”
