Moses Cone Health System Goes Live With Proficient Orders

Integrated Delivery Network Using Cloud Computing Technology to Streamline Communication and Promote Health Information Exchange With Physicians and Hospitals

GREENSBORO, NC--(Marketwire - December 14, 2010) - Proficient Health, a leading provider of access management solutions, today announced that Moses Cone Health System, a North Carolina-based integrated delivery network including six hospitals, went live on its Proficient Orders cloud computing solution to streamline communication with local physicians and lay the groundwork to support health information exchange (HIE). Proficient Orders automates orders and referrals, enabling hospitals and health systems to securely share patient data with ambulatory physician practices over the Internet.

"After researching several options and vendors, we chose Proficient Health because its solution's ease of use, robustness, flexibility and affordability best met our communication needs," said Sue Dotson, executive director of operative services at Moses Cone. "The problem with receiving and processing paper- and fax-based orders and referrals is that it creates workflow inefficiencies that can cause errors and delay treatment, communication and coordination with physicians."

Proficient orders will help Moses Cone build a foundation to participate in a statewide HIE known as the North Carolina Healthcare Information Exchange (NCHEX). The provider is working with the North Carolina Hospital Association to develop and launch NCHEX. Earlier this year, North Carolina was awarded $12.9 million in federal funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to plan, design and build a statewide HIE.

"We are pleased to partner with one of the country's leading health systems," said Proficient Health's CEO, Robb Hutchison. "We look forward to working with Moses Cone to promote more efficient, safer, collaborative and connected care."
