Fremont Area Medical Center, a 202-bed healthcare facility in Nebraska serving Dodge County and surrounding areas, today contracted St. Paul, Minn.-based global enterprise software provider Lawson to help establish the health center’s planned health information exchange (HIE).

Lawson Enterprise Exchange helps healthcare organizations create a single source of patient data and records across all care settings–from primary care physicians and clinics to specialists to hospital care. It helps health systems, hospitals, and community care providers electronically move clinical information between disparate healthcare information systems, while maintaining the integrity of patient information. The contract was signed during Lawson’s first quarter of fiscal 2011, which ends Aug. 31, 2010. Lawson Enterprise Exchange is a product now available through Lawson following the company’s Jan. 2010 acquisition of Healthvision.

FAMC is actively pursuing the development of its HIE to bring together comprehensive patient data from care settings throughout its medical community. This includes data from primary care physicians, specialists, and hospital stays, which will help provide a more complete history of a patient’s care as well as medications that have been prescribed by different providers. Lawson Enterprise Exchange will help transform how FAMC makes information available for consumption by physicians, providing ready access to information through one source. This HIE initiative will ultimately help FAMC deliver better care.
