Exchanging Health Care Information

The healthcare community in the U.S. is currently transitioning from the fee-for-service model to outcome-driven care. Communication between users of different systems are still a major challenge, but technological advances such as the use of a cloud-based health information exchange make it easier to communicate and exchange information. Among other benefits, this helps to streamline the new patient enrollment process and allow primary care physicians and specialists to easily share information. A comprehensive view of the patient’s status will also help lower cost by eliminating redundant tests and procedures. Michigan-based Covisint has been on the forefront of providing such secure enterprise-class collaboration platforms for 14 years.
