BridgeHead Software Partners to Offer HealthStore™ Independent Clinical Archive

Premium Partners Park Place International and INHS Offer Next Generation Vendor Neutral Archive to Meet Growing Hospital Demand for a Centralized Data Repository

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Apr 13, 2015) - HIMSS15 -- BridgeHead Software, a leader in healthcare data management, today announced that two of its foundation partners, Park Place International (PPI) and Engage (a division of INHS) are adding the HealthStore™ Independent Clinical Archive (ICA) to their technology portfolios. PPI and Engage will help BridgeHead meet growing hospital demand for HealthStore™, an enterprise repository for the storing, sharing and protection of all patient data across the healthcare network.

The first truly independent clinical archive, BridgeHead HealthStore centralizes and manages the information lifecycle of data, both clinical and non-clinical, across the entire healthcare enterprise. Offering a single, searchable and standards-based software repository for all healthcare data, HealthStore enables hospitals to deliver on their vision of the single patient record.

"BridgeHead HealthStore offers a unique solution to hospitals that want to consolidate patient data in an easily-accessible, standards-based independent clinical archive," said Michael Ball, Senior Vice President, North America, BridgeHead Software. "It makes perfect sense that our foundation partners PPI and Engage who have installed and supported our healthcare data management platform in over 1200 hospitals are the first to help us bring an ICA solution to their customers."

Park Place International and its dedicated team of professional engineers and consultants provide on premise and cloud-based technology solutions for healthcare, and have a long history of success designing and implementing data management solutions for MEDITECH hospitals. "PPI and BridgeHead are committed to working together to provide solutions that enhance the value of our mutual customers' investments, provide a realistic path toward interoperability, and result in improved patient care," said James Fitzgerald, Executive Vice President at PPI.

Engage, the IT consulting, implementation and management division of INHS has more than 20 years of extensive MEDITECH experience and has partnered with BridgeHead to bring its archiving and data protection offerings to MEDITECH accounts. "Engage is excited to work with BridgeHead to bring the HealthStore ICA to market," said Chad Skidmore, Director at INHS/Engage. "We are seeing great interest among MEDITECH hospitals for a data management solution that supports their vision of an electronic patient record."
