Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian, Orange County, Calif., announced it has connected 250 providers to its health information exchange (HIE) five months after beginning rollout of the Salt Lake City-based Medicity's Novo Grid solution. This implementation milestone marks the successful first phase of Hoag's substantial HIE initiative dedicated to optimizing its community's healthcare experience.

Hoag's HIE currently distributes laboratory, radiology, pathology, transcribed reports, and face sheets to both paper-based practices and those using electronic health records (EHRs). Community providers without EHRs can access and print patient information securely via a web-based application. The Hoag HIE has already integrated electronically with Allscripts and eClinicalWorks EHRs and will soon integrate with NextGen, with other ONC-certified EHRs to follow.

As part of its larger HIE strategy, Hoag has also implemented Medicity's ProAccess Community application and MediTrust Cloud Services and is aggregating data in a live environment to establish a community health record. Hoag will roll out access to this record to a pilot group in January 2011.
