Diameter Health Continues Pennsylvania Expansion with New ClinicalConnect HIE Partnership
FARMINGTON, CONN. NOVEMBER 06, 2018
Diameter Health, a leading enabler of clinical insight through the cleansing, de-duplication and enrichment of clinical data across the care continuum, has announced that ClinicalConnect HIE, western Pennsylvania’s health information exchange (HIE), has selected the Fusion, Analyze, and Quality applications to automate processes and standardize data interchange between payers, providers, and other constituents. ClinicalConnect HIE joins the ranks of Diameter Health’s other Pennsylvania-based HIE customer, HealthShare Exchange of Southeastern Pennsylvania (HSX).
ClinicalConnect HIE was established to connect clinicians with electronic medical records to help improve patient care delivery. Now covering more than 3.7 million patients across the region, ClinicalConnect HIE was seeking a solution that would optimize data quality and data exchange across its network of provider organizations. Using the Diameter Health platform, ClinicalConnect HIE will help enable faster patient care, reduce unnecessary testing and improve care management for its customers, like the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) health system.
“It was incredibly important for us to find a technology partner that would integrate into our existing infrastructure at scale,” said Phyllis Szymanski, Director of ClinicalConnect HIE. “With Diameter Health, we can deliver clean, meaningful insights on the clinical data flowing through our system. This adds tremendous value for our Members working on key programs like quality reporting.”
“ClinicalConnect HIE is among the most successful health information exchanges in the United States,” said Eric Rosow, Chief Executive Officer of Diameter Health. “Through our partnership, ClinicalConnect HIE continues to demonstrate its commitment to providing immediate access to actionable health information for its Members in order to benefit patients and those responsible for their care. We’re excited to add ClinicalConnect HIE to our client roster of the top HIEs in the nation.”
Diameter Health’s Fusion application enables ClinicalConnect HIE to standardize and enrich clinical data, creating a single, longitudinal patient view to support value-based care models, accountable care initiatives, and improve outcomes along the continuum of care. The Analyze application measures clinical data completeness and accuracy to create instant ratings and inform ClinicalConnect HIE’s ongoing quality improvement initiatives. The Quality application, certified by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and the ONC, automates clinical quality reporting, and creates standard supplemental data for HEDIS and STAR reporting. Together, the applications will bring ClinicalConnect closer to achieving the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s Triple Aim: improve patient experience, improve the health of populations, and reduce the cost of healthcare.
