HealthShare Exchange (HSX), the non-profit health information exchange (HIE) for the Greater Philadelphia area, recently announced that it has expanded its data sharing services to provider organizations in New Jersey.
The organization also announced that it is now exchanging patient health information with Penn Medicine’s Princeton Health, and will soon do so with Virtua Physician Partners, the clinically integrated network of practices associated with Virtua health system.
“With the first-rate medical centers and providers in this market, a significant number of patients travel between southern New Jersey and the counties of the Philadelphia area for their care,” explains Bill Hanson, Chief Medical Information Officer and Vice President at Penn Medicine, in this press release. “It’s important that their medical information travel with them — or in this case, ahead of them — so that it is available to support treatment in any health venue they visit in our region.”
For the New Jersey expansion, the HIE will be sending patient data to the New Jersey Health Information Network (NJHIN), an organization that aims to facilitate data exchange in the state.
In addition, exchange data is now available to other HSX members that have a presence in New Jersey, including the physician practices of St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, as well as those of Jefferson Health and Penn Medicine. Participants in the state also include long-term care organizations such as Genesis and Holy Redeemer.
For any HIE expanding its services, RosettaHealth offers an innovative and industrialized platform that enables the efficient, seamless, and secure transportation of data and connects the ecosystem of healthcare for HIEs.
Also, HASA, the non-profit, community HIE for North, South and West Texas, uses the RosettaHealth platform to enhance the exchange of patient health records to better allow healthcare providers in HASA’s network to have automated access to clinical patient information in real-time through their electronic health record.
HealtHIE Nevada is also using the RosettaHealth HealthBus solution as a “universal translator” of health data transport protocols. This solution allows the HIE to more easily register new patients and provide health records to all providers, during and after any episode of care.
Congratulations to HSX for expanding its services, which further brings its mission of providing the secure access to health information for improving the quality of care to life.
