HealthBridge Partners With Axolotl for Clinical Results Delivery to Twenty Three Community Electronic Medical Records Systems

Physicians Receive Patient Data Directly Into Their Practice EMRs

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - May 31, 2007) - HealthBridge, the largest and most successful Regional Health Information Organization (RHIO) in the United States announced today that they are successfully delivering clinical results to 23 unique EMR systems using Axolotl's state-of-the art health information exchange (HIE) Elysium solution. The HealthBridge community of approximately 4,500 physicians and 21 hospitals (5 health systems), in the greater Cincinnati area have been electronically communicating results since 2001. With ambulatory EMR adoption on the rise, HealthBridge has been able to quickly accommodate the choices made by its physicians and now has more operational interfaces than any other community. Physicians receive clinical data directly into their EMRs -- building a complete patient record.

"HealthBridge is thrilled to be able to provide significant value to physicians that are using EMRs," said Bob Steffel, CEO, HealthBridge. "Data from 21 hospitals, 2 national laboratories, 2 imaging centers and other healthcare source systems is pushed to those physicians' EMRs in a way that the EMRs can immediately accept. Using Axolotl's Elysium solution, we no longer have to update code or create customized point-to-point interfaces for each of our 23 community EMRs."

"Axolotl's Health Information Exchange solutions make it easy for hospitals, health systems and entire communities to share healthcare data, regardless of the source system or EMR in place," said Ray Scott, CEO of Axolotl. "HealthBridge has made this capability a reality 23 times, and growing! Their physicians and patient population are reaping the benefits in workflow improvements, cost savings and a higher quality of care."
