    • Data Express
    • Communication Director
    • Bed Ready for MEDITECH Bed Board
    • im-one solutions (identity management)
    • MDI (medical device integration)
Data Express
  • Data Express – developed with MEDITECH
    • HL7 data exchange with physicians’ ambulatory EMRs
    • Part of MEDITECH’s interoperability strategy
    • Solution partnership provides advantages now and in the future
  • Goals:
    • Simplify Complexity
    • Deploy Rapidly
    • Reduce Cost
    • Provide Flexibility and Longevity
    • Extend Your Resources
Data Express
  • Data Express & the Economic Stimulus Package
    • Promote adoption of interoperable health records
      • “Meaningful use” – electronic exchange of information
    • Strengthen HIPAA Standards
      • PHI disclosure audit trail
Data Express

Hospital / Health System

Physician Offices

Lab Results

HL7 Results

ITS Results

HL7 Orders

And many other EMRs


Data Express
  • Simplify Complexity
    • “One-to-many” solution
    • Using national standards  HL7 2.1-2.5
    • Standardized set of MEDITECH interfaces
      • Lab, Micro, Blood Bank, Path & ITS
    • Standard and tailored output formats
      • Allscripts, NextGen, eClinicalWorks, many others
    • Provide both HL7 data streaming (MLLP) and/or HL7 file to a secure FTP site or network location
Data Express
  • Deploy Rapidly
    • MEDITECH provides rapid delivery of interfaces
    • Forward Advantage resources  deploy now, don’t wait to find time or delay other projects
    • Configured to immediately
      • receive HL7 results from MEDITECH
      • send HL7 results in HL7 2.1-2.5 formats
    • In minutes, send data to additional physicians once output format is in place
    • MEDITECH and Forward Advantage team up to provide rapid response
Data Express
  • Reduce Cost
    • MEDITECH Data Express results interfaces – bundled pricing model
      • Only one set of MEDITECH results interfaces (“one-to-many” model)
    • Built-in routing capability based on physician profiles
    • No “per connection” (per recipient) charges
      • Deliver the same output format to as many recipients as desired!
Data Express
  • Provide Flexibility and Longevity
    • Orders and ADT supported
      • MEDITECH’s streamlined approach to Orders
    • Extend input/output formats as needed
    • MEDITECH commitment to provide standards updates and market-driven updates
    • Streamlined update process due to Forward Advantage relationship with MEDITECH
    • MPI integration supported
Data Express
  • Extend Your Resources
    • Supplement your internal resources
      • Customer-acclaimed services and project expertise
      • Keep your other projects on track
    • Experience the advantage of our MEDITECH relationship
    • Move your project forward quickly
    • Meet your physicians’ demand for electronic exchange of information …now
Data Express
  • Successful deployments
    • Client/Server and MAGIC
  • EMRs deployed and evaluated
    • NextGen
    • Allscripts
    • GE Centricity
    • eClinicalWorks
    • Misys
    • eMDs
    • Wellogic
    • Greenway
    • And more…
Data Express & Communication Director
  • Shared Communication Director tools
    • SAM (activity monitor/audit trail)
    • Administration Tools
    • Routing Database
  • Data Express can be deployed on same or separate server
Getting Ready
  • Incorporate “meaningful use” into your Strategic Plans
  • Identify physicians’ EMRs
    • Interface specifications
    • Direct HL7 feed (MLLP) or HL7 file import
  • Evaluate connectivity
    • Currently available or needs to be implemented?
    • Important to test facility to physician/EMR connectivity (often different configuration than existing)
  • Determine roll-out plan
    • One practice/group
    • Expand based on EMR vendor, physician priority, other
    • Facility vs. physician cost
