NextGate MatchMetrix EMPI Leveraged For Health Information Exchange by Covisint for Beacon Grant Awardee Greater Tulsa Hea

ARCADIA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- NextGate, the Enterprise Master Index leader, today announced that Covisint, who is supplying HIE technology for the Greater Tulsa Health Access Network (Greater THAN) will be implementing the NextGate® MatchMetrix® EMPI as the Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI). MatchMetrix and the Covisint ExchangeLink™ platform will improve patient care by increasing access to complete information at the point of care and enabling greater sharing of health information between doctors, hospitals, and patients.

Greater THAN is a consortium of organizations that have formed to improve the health and quality of life for all Oklahomans in the Tulsa region through the establishment of a health information exchange. Greater THAN recently received one of only 17 Beacon Grants from the Office of the National coordinator for Health IT to help achieve meaningful and measurable improvements in health care quality, safety, and efficiency.

Greater THAN selected Covisint ExchangeLink to improve health outcomes and information access through a community wide HIE. Obtaining a single view of a patient is critically important to effective health information exchange and NextGate MatchMetrix will be the EMPI delivering that patient centric view for the solution.

"We are pleased to work with NextGate at the Greater THAN health information exchange," said Steve Asam, Vice President, Information Technology at Covisint. "MatchMetrix delivers the features, accuracy, performance, and usability required to fulfill EMPI needs."

MatchMetrix EMPI was designed for accuracy, throughput and customization for all critical capabilities of an EMPI used in an HIE. With the configurability of the user interface and rich APIs included, it is easy for customers and partners to seamlessly incorporate MatchMetrix into their HIE solutions.

"We are pleased to be the EMPI at the Greater THAN health information exchange, the second Beacon Community Awardee to be implementing MatchMetrix," said Andy Aroditis, CEO, NextGate. "As the industry’s premier Enterprise Master Index specialist, NextGate’s mission is to help organizations improve health care delivery through affordable technology resulting in improved patient care and satisfaction."
