Tacoma, Wash.-based MultiCare Health System has expanded its deployment of San Jose, Calif.-based Certify’s interoperability solution for health information exchange to its four acute care hospitals and affiliated physicians.

Certify’s Gateway solution connects with its HealthDock appliances that are installed in physician clinics affiliated with MultiCare, allowing the MultiCare hospitals and physicians to exchange critical data. The Certify solution requires no additional software to be installed in MultiCare’s hospitals or affiliated physician offices, says the company.

MultiCare is an 818-bed organization that includes four hospitals and numerous primary care and urgent care clinics, multi‐specialty centers, hospice and home health services. It is the largest provider of healthcare services in the Tacoma area.
