San Antonio-based AT&T, Detroit-based Covisint, and Redmond, Wash.-based Microsoft today announced a nationwide eHealth exchange using Microsoft HealthVault to share information with all physicians and health care providers connected to AT&T Healthcare Community Online.
The new eHealth information exchange, enabled by Covisint’s On-Demand Healthcare Platform and layered on AT&T’s patented eHealth solutions and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) network, shares information electronically and in a security-enhanced way across the continuum of care — from patient to provider communities such as HealthVault, health-information exchanges and insurers.
The new exchange platform brings together elements required to establish comprehensive interoperability and collaboration communities for national, state, and local health-information exchanges, enabling such applications as:
* Prescribing pharmaceuticals online
* Providing clinical messaging among health care providers
* Sharing high-density images, including X-rays, MRIs, and CT scans
* Exchanging patient-aggregated information via portable health records, which provides patient profiles, medical history, prescriptions, etc.
* Uploading of data from home health devices such as blood pressure meters, glucometers, etc., allowing for remote diagnostics and chronic disease monitoring and management
* A streamlined clinical and administrative process
