Solstas and OnePartner Create New HIE (5/11/12)

For years, the ability to exchange secure, consistent and seamless patient health information data between healthcare providers was considered futuristic, a connectivity pipe dream.

Thanks to collaboration between OnePartnerTM and Solstas Lab PartnersSM, the future is now. Beginning immediately, physicians in Tennessee, Virginia and North Carolina may sign up to participate in the connectivity process. The OnePartner HIE will be fully operational by mid-2012.

All regional physicians, hospitals and health care delivery organizations are invited to join and share clinical diagnostic health information. According to OnePartner President Scott R. Fowler, JD, MD, the new HIE will create efficiency and connectivity for the benefit of patients throughout the region.

The secure, electronic exchange of health information among providers will, without a doubt, improve patient outcomes," said Fowler.  "With the OnePartner HIE, we're removing silos and giving all members of a patient's care team access to the medical information they need at the time and place they need it.  Truly, this is value creation."

Solstas CEO David Weavil says patient value creation is the primary reason the
company is supporting the HIE project.

"This program represents the type of innovative partnership we look for," said
Weavil. "Solstas is proud to be working side-by-side with Dr. Fowler and regional
healthcare leaders to improve medical information availability to all providers. If
our clients can spend less time on data, they can spend more time with patients.
That's delivering real value at the patient level."

"With this launch," said Weavil, "we look forward to bringing additional value to
medical communities."
