Harris to Develop National Health Information Exchange Gateway to Share EMRs

March 20, 2008 - Harris Corp. was recently awarded a contract by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to develop and integrate an open-source, National Health Information Exchange Gateway solution, enabling federal healthcare agencies and healthcare providers to quickly and easily share patient information.

Initially, the gateway will connect government healthcare providers within the Department of Defense, Veterans Administration, Social Security Administration, and Indian Health Service to provide access and exchange of vital patient medical records. The second phase of the gateway deployment will move the core components into the public domain, essentially creating a World Wide Web for healthcare information exchange among providers of all specialties and sizes.

Under the contract, Harris will provide the gateway core services, customized software that can be easily downloaded by providers to quickly enable connection to the National Health Information Network, and a software development kit that enables providers to customize the gateway while connected to the network.

The gateway will integrate and reuse technology based on the Cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid used by the National Cancer Institute and the Bi-directional Health Information Exchange that currently provides for medical information exchange between the Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration. To provide the government with the lowest risk solution, Harris teamed with Agilex Inc. and ScenPro Inc.

Harris Healthcare Solutions provides enterprise intelligence solutions and services for commercial and government customers, including systems integration, intelligent infrastructure, advanced visualization and display, enterprise digital content management, and IT services solutions.
