CureMD Healthcare, the leading provider of EMR, PM and Portal Cloud, announced on November 14, 2011 the launch of its HIE connectivity with one of the largest hospital organizations in the nation, The Hospital Corporation of America (HCA).

HCA is the nation’s leading provider of healthcare services through locally managed facilities in 20 states and Great Britain and employs approximately 183,000 people. Based in Nashville, TN, HCA was founded in 1968 and is one of the nation’s first hospital companies. HCA currently operates 164 hospital and 106 Free Standing Ambulatory Care centers in 20 states as well as in Great Britain. Nearly five percent of all impatient care delivered in the country today is provided by HCA facilities.

The connectivity enables physicians associated with HCA facilities to conveniently exchange hospital based clinical and medical management information with CureMD’s Smart Cloud EMR, PM and Portal. Consequently, providers deliver better care with all information at their fingertips. This technology supports the flow of health information between physician practice, hospitals, long term care facilities, labs radiology centers, and other health care institutions. CureMD HIE connectivity allows delivery of the right health information to the right place at the right time, providing safer, more timely, efficient, patient-centered care.

Saeed Khan MD, MBA, FACP who runs the largest physician group in rural Okeechobee County in Florida has comments on his partners ability to access the HCA area platform. “The ability to seamlessly connect with the hospital gives us the tools to provide the highest quality of care, reduce duplication of tests and services which in turn enhances patient safety by preventing potential errors.”
