MedPlus to Implement Clinical Portal, Information Exchange

January 14, 2008 - MedPlus, the healthcare information technology subsidiary of Quest Diagnostics Inc. was awarded a contract to implement a clinical portal and information exchange for the Brooklyn Health Information Exchange (BHIX), enabling physicians and other healthcare workers to securely collect, manage and share patient information in real time from Internet-enabled locations across the BHIX's eleven partner organizations.
Under terms of an agreement with Maimonides Medical Center, the contractor for the BHIX's clinical portal and information exchange project, MedPlus will provide consulting, project management, design and implementation services to deploy MedPlus' clinical portal, data exchange engine and document management and imaging system for sharing patients' medical records electronically across multiple facilities in Brooklyn. Additional terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Organized by Maimonides Medical Center and other healthcare organizations in New York, the BHIX is a not-for-profit corporation that will offer health information exchange services in Brooklyn. The BHIX exchange, which is to be operational in July 2008, will employ MedPlus technologies to allow BHIX partners to aggregate and manage patient data in their own clinician practices, while also giving individual physicians and healthcare workers who are members of the BHIX access to patient data at different care settings.
Authorized users will be able to access a portal through secure Internet-enabled workstations to view six key data elements of a patient's medical data: patient demographics; medication lists; allergies; advance directives; information on physicians treating the patient; and a medical problem list. In addition, healthcare workers will be able to employ paper-record scanning and indexing of advanced directives and patient consent forms.
