eHealth Global, HKS Connect Transplant Department Patient Records with External Data

April 18, 2008 - eHealth Global Technologies Inc. and HKS Medical Information Systems Inc. entered into an agreement to offer a fully integrated solution that streamlines medical record management for transplant departments.

The official announcement of the deal will be made Monday, April 21 at the 16th Annual United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) Transplant Management Forum in Dallas.

The agreement brings together the OTTR (Organ Transplant Tracking Record), a patient tracking application and electronic health record developed specifically to meet the needs of organ transplant centers, and eHealthConnect, a medical record management service that collects, digitizes, organizes, secures and stores outside patient records. The eHealthConnect service will be accessible from within the OTTR system so that users will have one user interface for all referred patient medical record requests. eHealth Global will then retrieve, digitize and upload the record directly into the transplant center’s OTTR system. By encapsulating a PDF in an HL7 message, users can append existing patient records with outside data for a more complete electronic medical record. Images can also be collected, digitized and made available for viewing securely via eHealth Global’s eHealthViewer from within the OTTR application.
