Greenway demonstrate biosurveillance benefits at PHIN Conference

Greenway Medical Technologies : 28 August, 2008  (Company News)
Greenway Medical Technologies, with its CCHIT Certified 2007 Ambulatory EHR, PrimeSuite 2007 R2, is participating in a biosurveillance demonstration at the 2008 Public Health Information Network (PHIN) Conference being held in Atlanta, USA, August 24 to 28, 2008.
The demonstration is showcasing Greenway’s ability to interoperate and electronically exchange patient health information from participating medical practices with public health registries.

Rapidly spreading diseases such as influenza, hepatitis B and HIV can be reported through PrimeSuite from participating medical practices to public health authorities, and any anomalies or potential outbreaks are immediately red flagged. If necessary, these registries will report the outbreak and raise awareness to health centers within the affected communities.

Additionally, PrimeSuite's CDC-based immunisation schedule and forecast module is being showcased at an immunisation demonstration that displays PrimeSuite's ability to interoperate with population-based Immunisation Information Systems (IIS). The standards-based exchange is the premier demonstration of the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise's (IHE) Immunisation Content (IC) profile, exhibiting the transmission and reception of document-based immunisation records.

The importance of this exchange is to help EHRs and IISs ensure that all people are properly immunised and are protected against vaccine preventable diseases.

'The ability to interoperate with public health agencies on behalf of participating medical practices that use PrimeSuite is a key component of Greenway's clinical research and public policy strategy,' said Justin Barnes, vice president of marketing and government affairs at Greenway Medical. 'The reporting functionality offered through PrimeSuite enables us to relay critical public health information to registries that, in turn, can relay warnings and alerts that are relevant to the entire community.'
