Greenway and Evolution Health Extend Communities of Care to Consumers' Homes
Home Health Professionals and Technology Innovation Deliver High-Quality, Cost-Efficient Healthcare to the Mobility-Challenged
CARROLLTON, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Greenway Medical Technologies, Inc., which delivers innovative software and business service solutions for healthcare providers through its PrimeSUITE® platform, announced today that Evolution Health will deploy PrimeSUITE nationwide in its unique home treatment and diagnostic service. Evolution Health has completed the deployment of PrimeSUITE in a Dallas, TX pilot program for Medicare beneficiaries, and will now expand its deployment to commercial markets throughout the United States.
A member of the EMSC family of companies, Evolution Health delivers primary healthcare services to patients where they live, including homes, senior apartments, assisted-living settings and congregate housing. Dedicated to bringing prompt, high-quality healthcare to the patient, Evolution Health leverages the latest medical and diagnostic technology to enhance healthcare access for consumers who often find mobility to be a significant barrier.
Evolution Health chose Greenway's PrimeSUITE electronic health record (EHR) platform for its ability to deliver interoperability in two key ways: at the home level via its application programming interface (API), and at the community level via its ready connections with acute-care systems.
"PrimeSUITE offers a tremendous advantage in its robust API and industry-leading interoperability," said Steven Boyd, Evolution Health chief executive officer. "The PrimeSUITE API simplifies interoperability with virtually any mobile and home health technology we use, from GPS systems to Bluetooth heart-rate monitors. PrimeSUITE also offers connections to hospitals in multiple health systems, ensuring secure, bi-directional data flow between our mobile systems and community hospitals. We're able to securely move patient care data among any device and system necessary to deliver the highest quality of care without requiring patient transport."
The initial Dallas deployment was completed in October 2012 in a proof of implementation, and Evolution Health will now aggressively expand its use of PrimeSUITE nationwide over the next 24 months.
"The Evolution Health vision of healthcare meshes perfectly with Greenway's vision of health IT's future," said Tee Green, Greenway® president and chief executive officer. "Evolution Health and Greenway are working together to ensure that high-quality healthcare is immediately available to consumers without requiring them to travel to care facilities, with beneficial patient information flowing smoothly throughout entire communities of health that include consumers' homes."
