Wellogic Earns Positive Customer Endorsements in KLAS Health Information Exchange Vendor Report

As HIE Industry Expands, Wellogic is “Poised for Growth” with a “Sophisticated Solution”

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Wellogic, a leading provider of Web and mobile health records management and care coordination solutions for doctors and patients, announced today it received positive customer endorsements in the June 2011 KLAS report, Health Information Exchanges: Rapid Growth in an Evolving Market. Its customers describe Wellogic as “experienced and poised for growth in the HIE market” and call its HIE a “sophisticated solution” well suited for decision support as it “incorporates good consent logic with a robust rules engine that manages what information flows in and out of the EMR.”

This annual KLAS study of the evolving health information exchange (HIE) industry assesses the adoption level of HIEs, the state of each vendor’s HIE activity and the effectiveness and ability of each vendor to respond to provider needs. According to KLAS, the HIE vendor study “focuses on commercially sponsored technology that is meant to facilitate the creation of HIEs.” It defines an HIE as two or more healthcare provider organizations “actively exchanging ... patient data and other information.” Wellogic was referenced in the report as an “Other Known HIE Vendor,” a category in which one to two live HIEs are surveyed and provide feedback on their experiences.

“The KLAS report is a valuable industry assessment of Wellogic’s strengths because the testimonials come directly from our customers,” said Sumit Nagpal, Wellogic founder, president and CEO. “Other HIEs move data around to streamline manual processes, a worthy but limited accomplishment. Wellogic’s robust rules engine delivers patient-specific point of care alerts that remind caregivers and patients of recommended interventions and enable safer, more cost-effective care delivery and meaningful care coordination.”

Wellogic’s key differentiators include:

  • Flexibility and scalability in the deployment model and platform architecture, ranging from fully federated to fully centralized
  • Apple-like usability for a pleasant, unobtrusive user experience
  • Market changing pricing that is unprecedented in this industry
  • Early adoption of modern standards. Wellogic led in Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN) implementation, was the first company to go live on the NHIN in early 2009 and is now implementing Direct, Cross-Community Patient Discovery (XCPD) and other emerging technologies and protocols to allow for efficient and cost-effective sharing of information, well ahead of the market
  • Semantic interoperability and patient data normalization across all data suppliers
  • Robust decision support and analytics at the point of care and between encounters
  • Substantial service center capability and highly scalable, geographically redundant cloud environment for those who wish to host with Wellogic
  • Long-standing experience and expertise rooted in solving interoperability issues since the mid-1990s
