Meridian Health, a not-for-profit health system located in Neptune, N.J., will utilize Nashville, Tenn.-based

Informatics Corporation of America’s (ICA) CareAlign solution to connect internal and external care participants across its hospitals and affiliated companies and providers.

By implementing CareAlign, the health system can make integrated patient records available to clinicians at any time, enabling them to deliver optimized care, says the company.

Through its five hospitals — Jersey Shore University Medical Center, K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital, Ocean Medical Center, Riverview Medical Center, and Southern Ocean Community Hospital — Meridian health serves patients across central and southern New Jersey. The system also offers home care and hospice agencies, skilled nursing and sub-acute care facilities, physician practices, rehabilitation and fitness centers, occupational health services, and outpatient laboratory, imaging, and surgery centers.
