YARDLEY, Pa., June 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MobileMD, Inc., announced today a five-year contract extension between Main Line Health (MLH), Bryn Mawr, Pa., and MobileMD for its 4D Health Information Exchange (HIE) service.
MobileMD supplies a cloud-based 4D HIE solution to MLH that connects healthcare providers and enables a robust, secure clinical dialog across inpatient, primary care, and specialty physicians in MLH's suburban Philadelphia market.
"We started with MobileMD in 2007 as a way to manage the delivery of our results and other clinical data to ambulatory doctors," commented Harm Scherpbier, M.D., vice president and chief medical information officer of MLH. "As we move into the future of pay for performance and accountable care, we realize we need a robust HIE more than ever before – MobileMD is the platform that will get us there. This agreement allows us to continue the build-out our HIE network," he noted.
Four hospitals and more than 30 practices are connected to MLH through MobileMD today. Most of MLH's participating practices have connected their ambulatory EMRs directly to the HIE to achieve a virtual complete medical record without disrupting clinical workflows or requiring significant investment.
MobileMD's CEO Todd Fisher added, "We are pleased to continue our relationship with MLH. Our history here goes beyond the typical vendor-customer engagement, and MLH has innovated the use of technology and exchange services. The flexibility of our cloud-based service has really hit its stride at Main Line."
