NEW ORLEANS, March 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MEDfx Corporation, a leader in the connected healthcare space, today announced that the company will take part in the upcoming HIMSS 2013 Conference & Exhibition, which will be held from March 3-7 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. A must-attend event for health IT professionals, HIMSS showcases the latest innovations in healthcare technology. MEDfx will exhibit the company's cutting-edge solutions at the AVNET Booth #1851 March 3-6, 2013.
A pioneer in the connected health industry, MEDfx has been providing Health Information Exchange (HIE) solutions since 2009, spanning both enterprise-wide private HIEs as well as public HIEs and secure messaging solutions. MEDfx offers a variety of tools for both secure point-to-point exchange of patient health information and community-based document sharing, all leveraging nationally and internationally recognized standards.
MEDfx has a history of success working with the Office of the National Coordinator around federal initiatives as well as traditional HIE initiatives with hospitals, IDNs and practices. In 2011 MEDfx performed one of the first successful pilots of ONC's Direct Project with MedVirginia, proving that common standards will help support the secure exchange of data among healthcare providers. Later that same year, MEDfx successfully demonstrated the power of connected healthcare in partnership with federal agencies and civilian healthcare organizations under the Virtual Lifetime Electronic Records (VLER) initiative for veterans and US military personnel.
In 2012, MEDfx and Community Health Alliance, Inc., a Virginia-based not-for-profit, formed a partnership to create a statewide Health Information Exchange (HIE), ConnectVirginia, in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Today, customers are able to extend the value of their MEDfx Lifescape Exchange HIE by seamlessly connecting it to the federal eHealth Exchange (formerly NwHIN) and DIRECT.
MEDfx's vision for healthcare is one where health information exchange is implicit in the delivery of patient care. Over the past year, MEDfx has doubled its investment in its portfolio of infrastructure tools for HIE, resulting in an extension of supported international standards for health information exchange beyond HL7, IHE and Federal standards like DIRECT and eHealth Exchange.
MEDfx recognizes that there is a large domestic and international market need for the MEDfx suite of solutions to integrate medical records, coordinate care across the healthcare continuum and enable knowledge-based decisions to drive the most cost-effective care therapies for patient populations. Currently there is strong demand in the healthcare marketplace for solutions that help manage care delivered to patient populations and very few solutions that meet that demand.
MEDfx is continuously investing in tools to enable the delivery of patient-centric care and create a connected healthcare community that automates cross-community workflows that are today often slow, manual and paper-based, rather than digitized and real-time. The company is dedicated to providing ACOs with the tools to create, aggregate and normalize data. The ultimate objective is the efficient delivery of actionable intelligence to improve care and outcomes for individuals and populations. Find out more at www.medfx.com.
