Healthfirst, a not-for-profit health plan serving more than one million members in the New York City metropolitan area, announced today that it selected the InterSystems HealthShare® health informatics platform for its health information exchange (HIE) and clinical portal. HealthShare will centralize clinical data from medical records and other sources for Healthfirst members, enabling the Healthfirst provider network (hospitals and physicians) to exchange data in a secure and efficient manner. It will assist Healthfirst members with providing necessary information to doctors as they navigate the healthcare system.

“Healthfirst is collaborating with our sponsor hospitals and doctors to transform care for members. Our HIE will create a seamless and secure platform to deliver important clinical information to a provider at the point of care,” said Deborah Hammond, MD, Healthfirst Vice President and Medical Director. “Providers will have access to detailed information such as prescription drug usage and alerts for gaps in care such as missing preventive care services. Healthfirst is proud to be leading the use of HIE technology.”

The implementation of an information exchange system empowers Healthfirst’s providers to deliver an even higher quality of care to members by sharing the most up-to-date information available at the point-of-care. The clinical portal for clinicians works across the entire care network, including acute, community, mental health, social care, and general practitioner services.

“Health plans need current, comprehensive and credible data to provide timely support for providers at the point of care. Through our experience integrating highly structured claims with complex clinical data, we understand the challenges faced by health plans and providers. We are pleased to support Healthfirst’s goals for improving health outcomes and transforming care through more effective use of information,” said Paul Grabscheid, Vice President of Strategic Planning, InterSystems.
