Quality Health Network (QHN), an health information exchange (HIE) based in Grand Junction, Colo., has successfully expanded to include the Western Colorado communities of Aspen and Montrose.

The HIE, which is powered by Axolotl’s Elysium Exchange platform, will enable more than 20 hospitals and attendant physicians in the 40,000 square miles of Western Colorado to securely share clinical information, improve patient outcomes, and reduce costs, says the company.

Using Elysium Exchange, the independent hospitals and physicians of Aspen and Montrose are now electronically connected to each other and with other independent hospitals and physicians in Grand Junction. The real-time clinical messaging infrastructure allows physicians to share data at the point of care between and among disparate hospital and EMR systems, it touts.

QHN is a non-profit organization founded and sustained by local health care groups to optimize the health of Western Coloradans.
