The Atlanta-based Eclipsys Corporation has announced that Cottage Health System of Santa Babara, Calif., will utilize a combination of the company's ambulatory and health information exchange (HIE) solutions in support of its eHealth Partnership initiative to link participating community physicians with Cottage's Sunrise Enterprise inpatient technology environment.

The eHealth Partnership will utilize Eclipsys' PeakPractice electronic medical record (EMR)/practice management (PM) solution, along with Eclipsys HealthXchange, powered by Medicity.

In an effort to accelerate physician participation in the eHealth Partnership, Cottage will subsidize the purchase, maintenance and support of the PeakPractice EMR for medical staff members of the healthcare system. Participating in the initiative also will serve to aid both Cottage and local physicians in achieving the expected "Meaningful Use" criteria of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009.
