QuadraMed and HANYS Solutions Expand Partnership to Provide New York Health Systems with Identity Management Solutions

RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- QuadraMed® Corporation, a leading provider of health care technologies and services that improve the quality, safety, and efficiency of patient care, today announced that it has signed an expanded agreement with HANYS Solutions, a subsidiary of the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS), to include QuadraMed’s identity management solutions.

HANYS Solutions, which has marketed QuadraMed’s Quantim® suite of health information management (HIM) coding, compliance, and record management solutions since 2000, will now also offer QuadraMed’s enterprise master patient index (MPI) solutions to New York-based hospitals and health systems. By adding QuadraMed’s (#1 in KLAS*) identity management offerings to the products and services it currently resells, both entities will help New York health systems achieve a variety of financial, clinical, and regulatory objectives.

“Through this partnership, New York’s hospitals will be able to leverage proven technologies that ensure data integrity and promote interoperability,” said Duncan W. James, QuadraMed Chief Executive Officer (CEO). “Beyond playing a critical role in health information exchange and supporting compliance with ‘meaningful use’ guidelines, a reliable and accurate MPI paves the way for improved patient safety and care within and among health care facilities.”

QuadraMed’s suite of identity management solutions, which includes enterprise MPI and clean-up services, work together to ensure one accurate clinical record is retained per patient, regardless of the data source, application, or facility being visited. By detecting and resolving erroneous or duplicate patient records, medical staff can quickly access a complete view of a patient’s treatment history, helping to enhance coordination between caregivers within one organization or across multiple facilities, while improving overall patient safety.

The offering also allows providers to:

  • increase internal operating efficiencies;
  • protect the integrity of electronic health records;
  • support initiatives to minimize potential adverse events;
  • enhance customer service; and
  • improve clinical and financial outcomes.

“We are pleased to broaden our relationship with QuadraMed to include its full suite of identity management solutions,” said Michael Ilnicki, President and CEO, HANYS Solutions. “MPI integrity is critical to successfully transitioning to an EHR and impacts both patient safety and the financial viability of any health system.”

*QuadraMed’s enterprise MPI solutions were ranked number one by KLAS Enterprises in the 2010 Top 20 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Professional Services report. They have achieved this ranking for six of the past seven years (2004-2007, 2009, and 2010). KLAS Enterprises is an independent research firm specializing in monitoring and reporting on the performance of health care vendors.
