NASHVILLE — A provider of healthcare revenue, payment cycle management and clinical information exchange solutions has expanded its technology-enabled solution that aims to improve business and clinical outcomes and care continuity.
Emdeon said the Emdeon Clinical Exchange integrates the company's electronic prescription routing, lab orders and results exchange, care alerts, medication history, clinical messaging and ONC-certified EHR capabilities into a comprehensive SaaS-based platform. This collection of market-leading clinical components is designed to work with a customer's existing systems and workflows, and therefore can help minimize financial risk by providing a relatively inexpensive alternative compared with higher cost capital-intensive solutions, Emdeon said.
"Physicians and hospitals that have the ability to electronically connect to labs, pharmacies and managed care companies are better positioned to provide patient-centric collaborative care," Emdeon EVP strategy and product management Miriam Paramore said. "Our enhanced platform for comprehensive clinical information exchange can provide our customers with an even stronger foundation of integrated health information that will support new and emerging healthcare delivery models for years to come."
Emdeon’s network currently reaches approximately 500,000 physicians, 81,000 dentists, 60,000 pharmacies, 5,000 hospitals, 1,200 payers and 300 labs.
