HealtheConnections, a growing Health Information Exchange (HIE) for eleven counties in Central New York, announced that they have selected the Diameter Health platform to provide data cleansing, as well as data quality analysis and dashboard reporting, for HealtheConnections participants.

HealtheConnections receives over 600,000 Continuity of Care documents (CCDs) from more than 200 data sources monthly. This translates to 70% of regional providers that are contributing medical records to the HIE.

“With our exponential expansion in the past year, we view Diameter Health as a strategic partner in enabling us to continue scaling our capabilities through data quality improvements,” said Rob Hack, President of HealtheConnections. “Our focus is on enhancing the data contributed to the health information exchange. We are applying industry standards to create well-defined, consistent information for quality metrics, analytics, and other key uses – our participants can use this to provide better patient care in so many ways. That’s what it’s all about, improving quality of care.”

For enterprises like HealtheConnections that integrate clinical data from multiple systems, the Diameter Health platform cures clinical data disorder by normalizing, de-duplicating and enriching clinical data and leveraging interoperability standards.

“We are excited to welcome HealtheConnections to the expanding Diameter Health family of customers,” said Diameter Health CEO, Eric Rosow. “We share a common bond – seeking to improve healthcare outcomes through seamlessly integrating disparate sources of clinical data.”
