Worcester, Mass.-based Fallon Clinic, a multi-specialty medical group practice, teamed up with HealthAlliance Hospital, a member of the UMass Memorial Health Care system, to launch SAFE Health (Secure Architecture For Exchanging Health Information).

A regional health information exchange program, SAFE Health is now active between HealthAlliance Hospital’s Leominster Campus Emergency Department and Fallon Clinic. It was originally founded by Fallon Clinic in partnership with Fallon Community Health Plan and UMass Memorial Health Care system.

SAFE Health uses technology to securely connect EHRs from multiple healthcare organizations. Its design focuses on usability by physicians, clinical staff, and patients in real-world healthcare settings.

While the first phase of SAFE Health is occurring at HealthAlliance Hospital, other providers in Central Massachusetts are expected to be added to the network over the next few years.
