NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Safety Net Connect (SNC), a leading provider of innovative web-based healthcare solutions for organizations assisting underserved populations, is pleased to announce that 21 hospitals are now linked with real-time exchange of census data by the eConnect system sponsored by L.A. Care Health Plan (L.A. Care).
“Timely access to actionable data is the essential goal of most any health information technology – but a lack of interoperability between systems and organizations often makes that goal challenging, if not impossible”
“Based on the outcomes of a successful pilot, we began rolling out the eConnect platform to the high-volume hospitals in our network in August of 2015,” explains L.A. Care CEO John Baackes. “Engaging twenty-one institutions in just over a year is a true testament to the value of this kind of data in improving outcomes for our hospital providers. We’re excited to be able to provide a meaningful solution that overcomes common connectivity barriers between systems.”
Hospitals on the L.A. Care eConnect platform will send “real-time” alerts with Health Level-7 Admit Discharge Transfer (HL7 ADT) real-time data exchange. The eConnect platform developed by SNC provides L.A. Care the ability for immediate interaction and intervention along with concurrent review and better care coordination, particularly for post-discharge management – improving quality of care while reducing avoidable readmissions.
“Timely access to actionable data is the essential goal of most any health information technology – but a lack of interoperability between systems and organizations often makes that goal challenging, if not impossible,” says Keith Matsutsuyu, CEO of SNC. “We’re honored to be part of a solution that fully delivers on the promise of HIT – for the provider, the payer and most importantly, the patient.”
