San Diego-based Palomar Pomerado Health (PPH), the largest public healthcare district in Calif., is deploying agent-based software from Novo Innovations (Alpharetta, Ga.) to improve health information exchange with physician-practice EMRs throughout the community.

During the first phase of implementation, PPH will utilize the Novo system to offer practices out-bound electronic results reporting, including face sheet data, transcriptions, radiology results, pathology results, and lab results. In addition, Novo’s Internet-based “drop box” functionality will be used to enable PPH to improve its data sharing with practices that do not have EMRs, says the company.

PPH’s network includes Palomar Medical Center, Pomerado Hospital, Villa Pomerado, Palomar Continuing Care Center and the Jean McLaughlin Women’s Center.
