Salt Lake City-based Medicity, a health information exchange (HIE) software provider, says it saw acceleration in the number of HIEs being formed in the second half of 2011. The company says it signed a record number of HIE contracts in 2011, with 43 health information exchanges (HIEs) contracting for its solutions, including 22 new ones.
"Our growth confirms that health information exchange has gained traction and validates the success Medicity has had over the past 10 years in establishing the most extensive footprint of connected health care providers in the nation," Brent Dover, president of Medicity, said in a statement.
Medicity's 43 contracts include solutions for HIEs run by private health systems, community exchanges sponsored by third-party health information organizations and direct physician-to-physician exchange through Medicity's iNexx platform.
