HealthInfoNet Selects Orion Health's Precision Medicine Platform

Maine's Statewide Health Information Exchange to use platform to enable high-quality care coordination across the continuum and shift from systems of data to 'systems of engagement.'

PORTLAND, Maine and SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthInfoNet (HIN), Maine's Health Information Exchange (HIE), announced today it is partnering with Orion Health on the implementation of a precision medicine platform. HealthInfoNet's HIE contains 98% of all Maine residents' clinical information and is connected to all Maine hospitals and over 500 ambulatory care sites.

Pending final review by its Board of Directors, HealthInfoNet plans to deploy Orion Health's Amadeus, a precision medicine platform that leverages an open and scalable database to capture, store and align patient information from multiple providers and payers. In addition, HealthInfoNet will incorporate Orion Health's integrated population health applications (Coordinate and Amadeus Analytics) to ensure the timely delivery of insightful patient information to healthcare professionals.

HealthInfoNet COO Shaun Alfreds said HealthInfoNet chose Orion Health because of its single suite of open source, scalable products that enable in-depth analysis and interoperability at both a population and an individual patient level.

"Orion Health's investments in incorporating secure, scalable and advanced technologies that are being used in healthcare organizations around the globe will enable HealthInfoNet to deliver enhanced value for providers, payers, and the residents of Maine," said Alfreds.  "The precision medicine tools will allow us to bring to fruition a new data exchange that expands beyond the delivery system to incorporate social services, genomics, and other unstructured data that will in turn empower Maine residents to be active participants in their health in a new 'data-informed' ecosystem."

"HealthInfoNet will build upon its already robust IT infrastructure to scale across the many venues of care in which patients are seen," said Suzanne Cogan, Vice President, Orion Health. "Orion Health's solution will support HealthInfoNet's shift from 'systems of data' to 'systems of engagement.'

HealthInfoNet will be the seventh significant U.S. deployment since Amadeus was launched last year.
