Covisint connects Michigan physicians to share patient information

Compuware : 08 October, 2008  (Application Story)
Compuware’s Covisint subsidiary has signed an agreement with several physician organizations across Southeast Michigan to electronically connect doctors to patient information via a single, secure framework.
The electronic exchange, My One Health Information Exchange, will connect several thousand physicians treating the majority of Southeast Michigan's five million residents.

Physician organizations forming this partnership include United Physicians, Olympia Medical Services and Continuum Management Services. My1HIE physicians will have immediate access to real-time patient information - including labs and eligibility - as well as access to applications like e-prescribing that help them deliver better care more cost effectively.

'Michigan led the industrial age with manufacturing, and now we are driving the healthcare adoption of technology - with physicians and their patients at the core,' said Dr Steven Grant, MD, FACP, president and chief executive officer, United Physicians. 'This Covisint partnership, now in its third year, gives us a great opportunity to make technology available and advance physician adoption. It is no secret that electronic tools, such as electronic prescribing, eliminate errors and improve patient care. It has also given us perspective on the marriage of healthcare and technology, and this coming together of multiple physician organizations statewide is precisely where healthcare and technology need to meet.'

Covisint will provide the secure platform powering this healthcare exchange that brings together data from many different sources onto one digital dashboard. And, regardless of how many systems each caregiver accesses, with Covisint, only a single, secure sign-on is required, freeing the physician to concentrate on patient care.

'For the first time ever, Michigan physicians will have a single-point of access to all of the clinical and administrative information they need to do their jobs,' said Randall Bickle, DO, JD, CPE, president and medical director, Olympia Medical Services. 'This will have a monumental impact in improving how we deliver patient care.'

Importantly, my1HIE physicians can keep all of their current technology since Covisint handles the interoperability, regulatory, administrative and help-desk issues associated with connecting multiple systems. The network is flexibly designed to enable future functionality such as disease management, imaging and connectivity with existing and future regional health information exchanges and other state agencies.

'This convergence addresses getting key information to where the majority of care is being the physician office,' said Brett Furst, vice president of healthcare for Covisint. 'You can expect to see more of this kind of ground-breaking work from Covisint as we continue to securely connect entire healthcare communities everywhere.'
