Connectria Partners With 3M Health Information Systems To Provide IBM pSeries (AIX) Managed Hosting To Achieve HIPAA Compliance To HealthInfoNet, Maine's Health Information Exchange
ST. LOUIS, MO (March 27, 2007) - Connectria Corporation has announced that it will provide AIX managed hosting on two IBM pSeries servers and managed hosting on 10 additional Intel servers to run 3M Health Information Systems and Orion Health's applications for Maine's Health Information Exchange. The highly scalable health information management system includes the 3M™ Clinical Data Repository, 3M™ Enterprise Master Person Index, and 3MT Healthcare Data Dictionary. Orion Health will provide its Concerto™ Medical Applications Portal, Rhapsody™ Integration Engine, and Concerto Forms solution. HealthInfoNet will leverage Connectria's world-class data centers and secure hosting services which have enabled 3M Health Information Systems and as well as Connectria's other healthcare customers to pass their HIPAA compliance audits.
Maine's Health Information Exchange is building one of the nation's first statewide health information-sharing networks designed to improve the quality and efficiency of health care delivery in Maine and, over time, make personal health information more available to patients. Following an extensive national search, 3M and its partners, Orion Health and Connectria, were chosen over 32 other vendors to create the integrated health information system.
"A growing number of physicians and other leaders in Maine are convinced that the creation of a statewide clinical information-sharing network is one of the most important steps Maine can take to improve the quality of health care," said Devore S. Culver, executive director for HealthInfoNet, the independent nonprofit organization formed in 2006 to build the state's HIE. "We believe this technology will give clinicians the information they need-when they need it most-to make better and more informed treatment decisions."
Culver further noted, "The advanced technology provided by 3M and its partners makes it possible to achieve the highest level of data interoperability. It also provides a high degree of security in a network that has patient privacy as its number one priority."
