OBIX by Clinical Computer Systems, Inc. Joins CommonWell Health Alliance


Nov. 19, 2014 - CommonWell Health Alliance (the "Alliance") today announced it has entered a new phase of its effort to advance health information technology (HIT) interoperability, extending the availability of its services and exploring additional opportunities for nationwide expansion. Members will now have the option to enter into service agreements with CommonWell that open the door for a broader range of providers and the people they serve to benefit from CommonWell Services.

"CommonWell is changing the way our industry thinks about interoperability," said Jeremy Delinsky, Chairman of the Board - CommonWell Health Alliance, and CTO - athenahealth. "Today, we are thrilled to announce a nationwide network to manage clinical information, promote greater access to health data and improve care across the continuum. By making these services broadly available, CommonWell is empowering its members and their clients to facilitate better care coordination across disparate EHRs and care settings."

A key milestone enabling CommonWell to move forward beyond its initial service launch was the recent formalization of its relationship with service provider RelayHealth, which serves as the technology foundation by which CommonWell services are leveraged.

Earlier this year, CommonWell's services were initially launched in four geographies at more than 10 provider sites. During the nine month period, more than 20,000 people actively chose to connect their records via CommonWell through their participating providers.

As of today, athenahealth, Cerner, CPSI, Greenway and McKesson have signed formal agreements with CommonWell to offer their clients these services across the nation. Already, these member companies have begun to deploy CommonWell services at provider sites in additional geographies, including Florida, Massachusetts and Washington.

Provider organizations of these member companies who participated in the initial launch also are continuing to leverage the CommonWell service within their practices.

"By using CommonWell's services, our providers can see a patient's health data using one interface rather than multiple point to point interfaces," said Lee Powe, CIO of Hugh Chatham, a CPSI and Greenway client. "In addition to improving the workflow, it also means a significant return on investment for the whole system."

CommonWell is well positioned to continue to expand nationwide with their now 14 active members with diverse experience across the care continuum, including the recent additions of Aprima, CareCloud and OBIX by Clinical Computer Systems, Inc. Membership now represents acute and ambulatory care EHR suppliers, as well as laboratory, retail pharmacy, perinatal care and long-term care health IT systems.

GLEN ALLEN, VA and ELGIN, IL - June 24, 2011 - MedCPU and Clinical Computer Systems, Incorporated (CCSI) have announced a partnership agreement that will unite CCSI's industry-leading OBIX Perinatal Data System with MedCPU's OB AdvisorTM, a new generation of decision-support software for obstetric care.

MedCPU's OB Advisor™ allows clinicians to focus on and deliver top quality patient care, without forcing them to change their preferred documentation workflows and habits. In real time, the system reads and analyzes any format of documentation in the EMR, structured and narrative notes alike, and prompts clinicians when deviations are identified from evidence-based clinical guidelines or the organization's established protocols. OB Advisor™ is powered by a robust, always-growing and customizable clinical Knowledge Base that includes more than 4,000 OB rules and protocols incorporating the official clinical guidelines from authorities such as American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as best practices used by lead obstetricians and maternal fetal medicine specialists in their daily patient care.

Ranked number one in all five, consecutive KLAS® reports* on labor and delivery systems, the OBIX Perinatal Data System is a comprehensive, computerized system for central, bedside, and remote electronic fetal monitoring. The system includes archiving, point-of-care charting, and Internet-based physician access. The OBIX system's exclusive E-Tools for EFM assessment provide decision support that helps clinicians improve their practice, educate their staff, and promote patient safety in electronic fetal monitoring.

"We are delighted to be able to provide such powerful clinical knowledge technology to our customers," said Kim Sell, President of CCSI. "By partnering with MedCPU, we believe clinicians will have access to the most advanced obstetric decision support system available, one that offers a significant opportunity for the improvement of care, enhancement of patient safety, and reduction of costs." Pat Dwyer, Director of Business Development, added "Our relationship with MedCPU reaffirms our commitment to providing our customers the best possible decision support tools, tools that can help manage clinical complexity and promote best practices."

"Our collaboration with CCSI gives clinicians the industry's most accurate clinical decision support at the point of care, bridging free-text documentation, information in structured EMR fields, and now data from the OBIX Perinatal Data System," says Eyal Ephrat, MD, an obstetrician, founder and Chief Executive Officer of MedCPU. "The approach allows clinicians to continue documenting the way they prefer, while benefiting from a highly accurate real-time clinical decision support that 'sees' the complete clinical picture of the patient, independently of where the data is documented or in which format."

About MedCPU: MedCPU Inc. is dedicated to improving the delivery of high quality patient care through the use of its revolutionary Expert Advisor™ technology: a real-time clinical decision support platform designed to deliver numerous guideline and best practice packages across the entire clinical spectrum, without requiring changes in the clinicians' documentation workflow.

AirStrip and CCSI will offer AirStrip OB as part of a suite of services to both current and prospective users of the OBIX system. "

We are excited to take this major step forward in improving the value of the OBIX system to our customers," said Kim Sell, President of CCSI.
