MobileMD, Warminster, Pa., and Holy Redeemer Health System, Huntingdon Valley, Pa., announced an agreement to provide state-of-the-art Health Information Exchange (HIE) services to Holy Redeemer and its entire healthcare provider community. The agreement utilizes MobileMD technology to improve patient care by allowing community-based physicians to access and share more health information about their patients rapidly, and provides even greater data exchange between various points of care within the Holy Redeemer Health System. Ultimately, Holy Redeemer is offering a tool for physicians to provide better patient care.

The agreement provides for MobileMD to deploy its 4D HIE, which is comprised of MobileMD’s flagship products, 4DX Intelligence Engine (4DX IE) and 4DX Enterprise Access (4DX EA), both designed to improve critical care information flow and facilitate meaningful use across the Holy Redeemer provider network.

Specifically, Holy Redeemer Health System will use MobileMD’s turnkey technologies and services to establish connectivity between its hospital, home health care, long-term care facilities, and its physicians and affiliated physicians. Holy Redeemer has embraced technology to enhance patient care for many years, pro-actively adopting electronic health records (EHR) in 2004, and introducing state-of-the-art Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE) health information technology within the health system in 2009. With MobileMD, Holy Redeemer extends its resources to community physicians affiliated with the Health System.
