ICW provides eHealth solutions for Torrance Hospital IPA

InterComponentWare : 12 December, 2007  (New Product)
InterComponentWare (ICW) has been selected by The Torrance Hospital Independent Practice Association Medical Group (THIPA) to provide an integrated electronic patient record (EPR) to medical group’s 400 plus physician network.
The agreement also includes the subsequent implementation of ICW's Care and Disease Manager and a networked personal health record (PHR), LifeSensor.

THIPA CEO Marc Moser explains why the ICW solutions are critical for THIPA: “We operate in a delegated group model, essentially functioning as both provider and payer. Sharing relevant, aggregated patient data across our provider network will ensure coordination of treatment and improve the quality of care, factors which, in turn, will reduce costs. We also see the need to take this one step further and to engage the patient in more focused care and disease management. ICW offers the most mature, fully integrated solution set for the eHealth market.”

The first phase of the ICW implementation is underway. Clinical and administrative data from THIPA's core systems, as well as those of its key partners, such as Torrance Memorial Medical Center, is being aggregated and displayed for clinicians through ICW's interoperable EPR. Subsequent phases of the project will include the integration of ICW's interactive Care and Disease Manager (for chronic illness best practices, geriatric monitoring, general health and wellness tracking) and ultimately a networked PHR.

“THIPA's transformational vision, coupled with their ability to tactically bring this vision to life, differentiates them from many other healthcare organizations,” observed Jeremy Coote, CEO of InterComponentWare.
