The Louisiana Rural Health Information Exchange, in conjunction with the Louisiana Rural Hospital Coalition, Inc. (LRHC) and Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in Shreveport (LSUHSC-S), announced the selection of an integrated platform provided by the four teams to achieve a federated, patient-centric regional eHealth initiative.

CareFX, CA, IBM and Initiate Systems will deploy and maintain a secure and reliable infrastructure for the "timely and accurate" electronic sharing of clinical information between community providers in North Louisiana and the LSUHSC-S.

The Louisiana Rural Hospital Coalition provides its 41 member hospitals with regulatory, legal, financial and legislative advocacy for both member hospitals and provider-based rural health clinics. The integrated platform is designed to provide clinicians with secure, anywhere, anytime access to a portal-based view of patient-centric data housed in disparate applications across multiple hospitals.
