MedLink, a provider of electronic health records (EHR) and practice management solutions, has signed an agreement with health information technology and solutions provider Thrasys.

The collaboration aims at providing interoperability and health record management based on SyntraNet from Thrasys.

Thrasys said that SyntraNet is a cloud based Health Information Exchange (HIE) and Collaboration Network.

Both the companies will co-market the HIE platform to Regional Health Information Organisations and Large Hospital groups as a solution for interoperability.

MedLink president Ray Vuono said that the Agreement with Thrasys strengthens MedLink’s ongoing RHIO community strategy and represents a key milestone in MedLink’s delivery of high-value healthcare solutions on an enterprise level.

“SyntraNet is a cloud based Health Information Exchange that can be deployed quickly across the service area of RHIOs, providing incredible value as the community scrambles to provide a financially sensible and scalable interoperable solution to meet the ‘meaningful use’ stipulations necessary to receive federal financial incentives to its member physician and healthcare organisations,” Vuono said.
