Nashville-based Informatics Corporation of America (ICA) has unveiled an enhanced version of its CareAlign solution. The product, ICA says, is designed to offer flexibility for data storage, patient matching and auditing functionality for HIEs, RHIOs and hospital systems. The updated solution offers a more advanced single technology product for clinicians to readily access, evaluate, and act upon patient information across disparate systems, it says.

The CareAlign patient matching feature is based on a user’s security access and a patient’s opt-in status, and provides clinicians with access to a complete patient record, regardless of where the patient was treated or which healthcare information technology system housed the data. The product is compatible with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer Version 7 and Mozilla Firefox, and can be accessed from desktop computers and mobile devices.

ICA was created with Vanderbilt Medical Center to take innovative technology developed by Vanderbilt physicians to the broader healthcare market.
