CHICAGO, June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — OnePartner Health Information Exchange (HIE) has extended its partnership with Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX), adding the dbMotion platform to support the HIE’s growth. The addition of dbMotion’s capabilities will enhance the ability of healthcare providers who participate in the exchange to communicate with one another to manage population health and enhance the care provided to patients. Allscripts acquired dbMotion in March 2013.
OnePartner HIE is a physician-owned and physician-led health information exchange fostering the electronic exchange of health-related information across the care continuum for the purpose of strengthening provider collaboration to improve quality care and patient outcomes. With the addition of the dbMotion platform, any provider participating in the OnePartner HIE will have the reporting capabilities and improved connectivity to provide proactive, highly-coordinated and patient-centered care. This partnership will help enable a smooth transition for providers as the industry moves from fee-for-service to accountable care, or fee-for-value, forging bonds with healthcare partners to more efficiently develop the population health and informatics necessary for today’s healthcare market.
OnePartner HIE is available to healthcare providers and Accountable Care Organizations (ACO) nationwide. OnePartner is proud to be the exclusive HIE for Qualuable Medical Professionals, an ACO in Northeast TN and Southwest VA designated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP). This ACO provides more than 500 physicians with connectivity to secure patient data all hosted at the OnePartner Advanced Technology and Applications Center (ATAC), North America’s first Tier III commercial data center.
One of the Qualuable participants, Holston Medical Group (HMG) has been an Allscripts client since 1996. HMG is a diversified group of nearly 150 primary care physicians, specialists and mid-level providers and is one of over 55 independent physician groups collaborating through participation in Qualuable to create value through gained efficiencies and shared savings.
“We are excited about the opportunity to connect with more of our fellow medical colleagues from various practices and groups through the OnePartner HIE with the dbMotion platform,” said HMG President and CEO Scott R. Fowler, JD, MD. “The OnePartner HIE with the dbMotion platform will help us improve population health and push forward quality initiatives leading to higher quality, lower cost healthcare.”
The dbMotion platform organizes data captured by disparate health information technologies across the OnePartner HIE and connects more than 700 physicians. OnePartner and dbMotion will allow providers to access consolidated patient information within their existing workflows in their preferred format rather than exiting one application and logging into another, providing a more seamless flow of information at the point of care. OnePartner also offers consultation services to smaller physician practices, helping them align with data analytics and lab services in addition to HIE and off-site data warehousing at the Tier III OnePartner ATAC data center.
“Allscripts solutions are enhancing multiple aspects of electronic connectivity in healthcare,” said Paul M. Black, President and Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. “Our technology will enable caregivers and patients alike to better connect with each other, coordinate care, and manage population health.”
