The Idaho Health Data Exchange (IHDE), Idaho's state designated Health Information Exchange (HIE), announced today that it has signed an agreement with Greenway Medical Technologies, a provider of electronic health record (EHR), ambulatory healthcare, and clinical research business solutions and services.
 
As part of this agreement, small and large physician practices across the state can easily participate and connect to the Idaho health information exchange without having to make modifications to their existing Greenway Medical EHRs, or build costly point–to–point interfaces to participate in the HIE.
 
Idaho physicians using Greenway’s integrated EHR, practice management and interoperability solution PrimeSUITE 2011, can immediately connect to the state HIE and have access to community wide clinical data from all participating data sources and health care providers instantly and securely. Through a single interface, Greenway practices and clinics can seamlessly push or pull information from any participant that feeds data into the Idaho Health Data Exchange. The interface will save practices, providers and clinics time on interface building, and cost for connectivity thereby allowing the practice to focus and provide for the needs of the patients.

New healthcare providers and physicians that participate and connect to IHDE will have access to clinical data from participating data sources including; Kootenai Medical Center, St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center, St. Mary’s Hospital, Clearwater Valley Hospital, Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center, St. Luke’s Health System, Pathologists Regional Laboratory, Treasure Valley Laboratory, Boise Pathology, PAML, Idaho’s Division of Medicaid, Blue Cross of Idaho, Regence Blue Shield of Idaho and others.
