Indian River Medical selects RelayHealth for health information exchange

Telecom Lead America: Indian River Medical Center (IRMC)
has selected RelayHealth for secure enterprise health information exchange (HIE)
between the facility and its employed and affiliated physicians.


The exchange will also provide area citizens a connected
and actionable personal health record (PHR).


Our goal at Indian River Medical Center is to
continually improve the outstanding healthcare we provide in our communities, while at the same time
expanding the services we offer to our employed and affiliated physicians,” said William Neil,


RelayHealth will assist IRMC to engage patients in their
healthcare for improved outcomes,while creating a compelling value proposition for
physicians: less paper and enhanced efficiency.


IRMC will provide its physicians and patients with
RelayHealth’s bi-directional, closed-loop orders and results, secure messaging, and patient
engagement services.


IRMC also plans to connect to the state of Florida’s HIE
through RelayHealth.


Hospitals and health systems face a number of challenges
managing health information.  Disparate EHRs, connectivity with enterprise, community,
regional and national HIEs and the ability to effectively engage patients in their care are
some of the more pressing challenges that robust, secure connectivity can help address,” said Jeff
Felton, president, RelayHealth.


RelayHealth provides the technology and flexibility that
will enable IRMC to address physician alignment, manage care coordination and better prepare
the organization as they work toward meeting meaningful use objectives.


RelayHealth processes nearly 15 billion healthcare
transactions annually by integrating the delivery of high-quality care and improving the financial
outcomes for its customers.
