Erie County Medical Center Selects eHealth Technologies to Optimize their Continuity of Care Lifecycle

Streamlined Process for Medical Record Retrieval

Rochester, N.Y., May 3, 2016 – eHealth Technologies, the leading provider of clinically informed referral solutions, announced today that Erie County Medical Center (ECMC) has selected eHealth Connect® Intelligent Health Record Aggregation to help deliver timely clinically organized out-of-network patient records to ensure the best possible care pre- and post-transplant.

eHealth Connect Intelligent Health Record Aggregation optimizes the continuity of care for patients by providing their complete integrated intelligently organized medical record, including progress notes, labs, pathology, and images, with salient terms highlighted. This provides clinicians a fast and easy way to navigate the requested patient records, and access needed information. Plus patients experience reduced time to their first appointment which can result in them being listed sooner, ultimately, making a positive difference for that patient’s life span and quality of life.

“At ECMC we take pride in providing every patient the highest quality of care delivered with compassion,” stated Thomas J. Quatroche, Jr., PhD, ECMC President and CEO. “Our partnership with eHealth Technologies helps us achieve this by delivering complete medical records and images allowing our clinicians to spend more time taking care of transplant patients and living donors and less time on administrative tasks.”

Every month, eHealth Technologies helps 60 transplant departments across the nation collect and organize medical records for transplant patients and living donors.

“We are thrilled to put our expertise to work to help the ECMC team gather records for their patients so their clinical staff has the information they need as soon as a transplant becomes viable,” stated Dr. Chad Malone, Chief Strategy Officer, eHealth Technologies. “In addition, we are excited to be expanding our eHealth Connect platform at ECMC where we have been providing ECMC clinicians with immediate access to diagnostic quality images and EKGs since 2012 through the HEALTHeLINK Health Information Exchange.”
