Kalispell, Mont.-based Northwest Healthcare, the largest participant in the Health Information Exchange of Montana (HIEM), is live on a single technology solution for accessing, evaluating and managing patient information across disparate systems.

The solution, from Nashville, Tenn.-based Informatics Corporation of America, aggregates data from all core clinicals, says the company.

The initial implementation is the first phase in the community-wide initiative to integrate patient information across six hospitals and more than a dozen clinics. Deployment of the technology throughout the remaining hospitals and clinics is expected to be completed by mid-2009, it says.

The HIEM includes Glacier Community Health Center and Northern Rockies Medical Center in Cut Bank; Lincoln County Community Health Center and St. John’s Lutheran Hospital in Libby; St. Luke’s Community Hospital in Ronan; North Valley Hospital in Whitefish, and Northwest Healthcare’s Kalispell Regional Medical Center in Kalispell, as well as more than a dozen clinics across the region.
