Public Health Reporting, Telehealth Added to New Mexico HIE
The New Mexico Health Information Collaborative (NMHIC) has selected Orion Health’s HIE platform to power its statewide health information exchange and expand the capabilities it offers to healthcare providers across New Mexico.
Officials say NMHIC will migrate from its current platform and transfer about one million master patient index (MPI) records to Orion Health HIE, offering participants access to an improved array of features, such as data analytics andbusiness intelligence dashboards, disease management tools, public health reporting capabilities and telehealth integration.
NMHIC plans to implement the enhanced HIE with a phased approach, officials say, and expects to develop a long-term community health record for each patient, which will facilitate initiatives aimed at improving population health management and reducing the burden of chronic diseases throughout the state.
Craig Hewitt, chief information officer for NMHIC, said in a statement: “With the enhanced features that Orion Health HIE offers, users will not only have access to the latest patient information, they’ll have the tools needed to drive improvements in care throughout New Mexico.”
As part of its implementaton, NMHIC will make use of the full Orion Health HIE solution, which is powered by Orion Health Rhapsody Integration Engine and includes Orion Health Clinical Data Repository and Clinical Portal, officials say. This will offer clinicians across New Mexico easy, secure access to the most up-to-date patient information.
