February 25, 2008— eHealth Global Technologies Inc. and MedCommons Inc. have partnered for a technology alliance designed to provide eHealth Global’s clients with a continuity of care record-compliant (CCR) solution for accessing and viewing referred patient records and images over the Internet.
eHealth Global’s portfolio of services are centered around the collection, digitization and access to medical records and images on behalf of referred patients to tertiary care facilities, specialty clinics and community-based health networks with disparate record management systems, according to the company. eHealth Global’s eHealthChart, which incorporates the MedCommons technology, provides CCR-standard based access to a patient’s health information, including capabilities to manage imaging and PDF documents.
“The alliance with MedCommons provides another option for our clients to access the records and images that we collect on their behalf,” said Ken Rosenfeld, president and acting-CEO of eHealth Global. “With eHealthChart, we can deliver the records we collect for secure online viewing, or direct integration and access via our customer’s existing information systems, such as an EMR or Radiology PACS. The CCR Standard is an important step toward driving full functionality and interoperability of medical records for clinical access wherever and whenever needed.”
