Meditab Software, developers of IMS (Intelligent Medical Software), has partnered with Surescripts to offer its clients a comprehensive Health Information Exchange (HIE) service on a common platform. The service allows patient-specific information to be securely and instantly transmitted among healthcare providers to help them make better decisions about patient care, improve clinical outcomes, increase efficiency, and lower healthcare costs.
“We’re happy to be able to now offer our clients this service, which is designed to help practices meet important Stage 2 Meaningful Use HIE requirements,” said Meditab CEO Mike Patel. “It really enhances the new version of our multi-award-winning, multi-certified IMS and we want to do everything we can to help clients reach the goals of Stage 2.”
With this integration, IMS users will be a part of the National Health Information Network that will help contribute to reducing the cost and improving the quality, safety and efficiency of healthcare across the country. The IMS EHR system combines a patient portal, clinical charting, e-prescribing, population management, decision support, practice analytics, document imaging and much more, on one robust database platform.
Surescripts operates the nation's largest clinical health information network that enables healthcare professionals to e-prescribe and access vital clinical information when and where it's needed. Its services facilitate the secure electronic exchange of clinical information between physicians, pharmacies, payers/PBMs, and other healthcare providers.
