Caradigm Grows HIE Capabilities
Caradigm, the year-old joint venture of GE Healthcare and Microsoft, has expanded its Amalga health information exchange (HIE) into an “intelligence platform” that provides the foundation for health IT tools for population health management and other accountable and integrated care efforts. In addition, Caradigm has built an application framework to help outside software developers create applications for its platform, and several already have.
The first provider organization to use the new Caradigm intelligence platform will be Continuum Health Partners, a multi-hospital system in New York City. Continuum will also deploy a care management module that Caradigm co-developed with the Geisinger Health Plan, based in Danville, Penn. Caradigm’s health IT portfolio is designed to help healthcare organizations connect systems and aggregate data across the community, apply analytics to the data to generate insights into population and individual health, provide clinicians with rapid access to data, maintain regulatory compliance, and implement new applications quickly.
