Brooklyn Health Information Exchange Selects Initiate Systems to Achieve Single, Accurate View of Patients

BHIX's approach should be followed closely as Brooklyn has more people than many cities. SV

CHICAGO – 4 February 2008 – The Brooklyn Health Information Exchange (BHIX) – a not-for-profit regional health information organization (RHIO) – has selected Initiate Patient™ software from Initiate Systems, Inc., as the foundational technology for locating, linking and matching of patient records. Initiate Patient is the high-performing enterprise master person index (EMPI) software application from Initiate Systems, a leader in master data management solutions. BHIX, comprised of several healthcare provider and payer organizations in New York, will offer health information exchange services in Brooklyn, New York's most populated borough.

Initiate’s technology will help BHIX create the foundational master person index, enabling patient identity resolution and linking of patients across multiple sources of data. Once a patient is uniquely identified and linked, Initiate Patient will also facilitate a portal application and Record Locator Service’s ability to search and establish context on a patient. Care teams will thus share a single, accurate view of any patient participating in BHIX.
