Greenway Medical Technologies Advances Patient-Provider Benefits
ATLANTA, March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Greenway Medical Technologies, provider of the fully-integrated electronic health record (EHR), practice management and interoperability solution PrimeSuite®, is demonstrating a seamless data transfer solution from its flagship EHR into Microsoft HealthVault, an online personal health management platform.
The demonstration, titled "Greenway and HealthVault: Secure, Centralized and Accessible Health," is scheduled for Wednesday, March 3 at 12:30 p.m. EST at the Microsoft booth (#6733) during the Health Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
HealthVault is designed to put consumers in control of their health by providing a central place for them to gather, store and mange their health records, as well as share that information with physicians, caretakers and family members. It also enables consumers to upload data from home health and fitness devices and offers a variety of third-party health services that help people better manage their health.
"We are proud to be part of this interoperability demonstration and of this relationship with HealthVault," said Greenway President Tee Green. "The time is now to further patient-provider interaction and communication through PrimeSuite-enabled practices, and HealthVault allows a centralized and portable solution on a scale that can truly advance this country's journey toward a national health information network. This interaction between Health IT innovators, providers and patients is a major step toward comprehensive and coordinated care."
Through PrimeSuite's use of standard data exchange language such as the Continuity of Care Document (CCD) and Continuity of Care Record (CCR) – which are also standard data exchange requirements in meaningful use proposals – providers can comply with patient requests and seamlessly transfer health records, prescription history, updated labs, discharge summaries and complete wellness and disease management recommendations into an individual patient's HealthVault. The information can then be shared and built at the discretion of each individual.
"Enabling physicians to transfer health information into a patient's HealthVault account is a critical step in helping individuals build long-term and comprehensive health histories that can be shared with family and a trusted network of caregivers," said David Cerino, general manager, Microsoft Health Solutions Group. "This empowers individuals to become more active partners in coordinating their care to drive better outcomes."
