The Lansing, Mich.-based Capital Area Regional Health Information Organization (Capital Area RHIO) has selected San Jose, Calif.-based Axolotl’s Elysium Exchange for its RHIO.
Through Capital Area RHIO, physicians will be able to securely share clinical information and communicate across organizations, says the company. All participating providers in the region will be connected, with full interoperability between disparate HIS and EMR systems. Physicians that do not currently use an EMR system will connect to the HIE using Axolotl’s Elysium EMR, a hosted, software as a service solution. The RHIO will also integrate syndromic surveillance into its HIE, the first of a number of planned public health functionalities.
Founded in 1994, the RHIO is a coalition of public and private community members, including physicians, health systems, businesses, health plans and academic institutions from the tri-county area of Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham in Mid-Michigan.
