The southeast Texas HIE partnered with J2 to deploy InterSystems HealthShare, replacing its legacy platform
HOUSTON, TEXAS and CHARLESTOWN, MASSACHUSETTS, August 22, 2017 — Greater Houston Healthconnect (GHH) announced today that it has gone live with InterSystems HealthShare, an interoperability platform providing a reliable, unified health record for the area’s 12 million patients. Providers in the region can access GHH’s integrated EHR data to improve patient safety, efficiency and outcomes.
J2 Interactive, a longtime InterSystems partner, provided the technical services to complete the migration from a previous platform. “Platform migrations are never easy, but J2, in close partnership with InterSystems and GHH, was able to complete a successful migration with an ambitious timeline with no service disruption to existing stakeholders,” said Mickey Yalon, J2’s Vice President and Chief Technology Officer.
“Building the foundation of our HIE on HealthShare will allow us to power 24/7 care delivery to the millions of people in Greater Houston, and to be more prepared for events outside our control, regardless of what factors may come into play,” added Nick Bonvino, CEO of GHH. “HealthShare will ensure that we can deliver the right information, to the right person, at the right time, and that care quality is never compromised.”
Covering the 24 counties that surround the third-largest city in the US, GHH is an independent, community-based organization responsible for enabling information exchange among healthcare providers. To learn more, please visit ghhconnect.org.
