Extensive work with Health Current a key to the development of expanded service

Zen Healthcare IT (“Zen”), a leading interoperability technology and services company, has announced an expanded capability to work with HIEs and HIE participants through extensive work with Health Current, Arizona’s health information exchange (HIE) and the nation’s fastest growing HIE over the past two years.

This expanded capability is the result of several years of close collaboration between Zen and Health Current, with Zen providing technical support for several key initiatives of Health Current. Zen’s technical support has assisted in the delivery of HIE services, the support of data acquisition and exchange of clinical data as well as improved data quality and data normalization.

Melissa Kotrys, CEO, Health Current, sees Zen Healthcare IT as a critical external resource. “Health Current has enjoyed a very good working relationship with Zen Healthcare and has benefitted from their technical assistance and knowledge of health information exchange,” she said. “Not only do they know our technical operations very well and bring us critical knowledge and experience in HIE and interoperability technology, they are well attuned to the HIE and health IT market and are thought leaders in the industry.”

The extensive work with Health Current has helped Zen Healthcare IT develop an expanded and enhanced capability to assist HIEs and HIE participants, according to Marilee Benson, Zen Health IT President. “We have been fortunate to work closely with Health Current,” she said, “and as a trusted resource, we have been able to expand and fine-tune our expertise and technology, bridging clinical data exchange gaps and improving availability of high quality data to enable better clinical decision making.

Zen Healthcare IT is ready and available to talk with any HIE or healthcare organization in need of assistance in accelerating clinical data exchange or with other HIE technology needs, according to Benson.
