The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted a patent no 8,095,386 to Medicity's health information exchange (HIE) technology.
The HIE facilitates competing health care organizations to locate, index, match and share patient records between health care organizations, thus ensuring the right records are associated with the right patient while enabling each organization to maintain control of its own data.
Medicity senior vice president and chief architect Ashish Shah said the system and method they invented is tuned specifically for community collaboration, better equipping providers and other key stakeholders to respond to a rapidly changing health care environment.
Medicity provides its HIE technology to more than 750 hospitals, 125,000 physicians and 250,000 end users in its connected ecosystem.
Medicity’s solutions empower hospitals, physicians and HIEs to improve the quality and efficiency of patient care.
