AT&T, Covisint and Microsoft Partnership: Nationwide Health Information Exchange
This promises to bring information from disparate sources together.
Not mentioned, is possible collaboration with other organizations attempting to create a National Health Information Exchange. More details are welcome. SV
The new eHealth information exchange is a revolutionary approach designed to reduce costs and improve the quality of care while putting patients in control of their medical records. It allows consumers using Microsoft® HealthVault™, a software and service-based platform for storing and accessing personal health information, to share information with authorized physicians and health care providers connected to AT&T Healthcare Community Online.
The new eHealth information exchange, enabled by Covisint’s On-Demand Healthcare Platform and layered on AT&T’s patented eHealth solutions and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) network, shares information electronically and in a security-enhanced way across the continuum of care — from patient to provider communities such as HealthVault, health-information exchanges and insurers.
