DataMotion Direct helps Northwell Health’s HIE Information Flow
Direct Secure Messaging Mobilizes Data Sharing Across Clinically Integrated Network
FLORHAM PARK, N.J., June 4th, 2019– DataMotion, a leading provider of secure messaging and data exchange solutions, today announced Northwell Health, the largest provider of healthcare services in New York State, has deployed the DataMotion Direct Secure Messaging solution to enhance its health information exchange (HIE) infrastructure. DataMotion Direct ensures seamlessly delivery of patient data across the many unique health IT systems utilized by Northwell’s growing network of care providers. The solution offers HIPAA-compliant security, scalability and interoperability – with the added cost savings and simplicity of email-like communications.
Timely delivery of patient health records by DataMotion Direct allows Northwell to provide better patient care, improved outcomes and an overall positive experience for patients and care providers. Meaningful operating efficiencies and cost savings are realized by using Direct Secure Messaging as compared to transport methods like fax and courier. DataMotion Direct also yields benefits under healthcare’s value-based reimbursement model as quality metrics associated with the HIE are used to determine reimbursement rates.
Northwell plans to expand its use of DataMotion Direct for Admit, Discharge, Transfer (ADT) event notifications, care transitions and other clinical workflows that require data exchange with parties external to Northwell’s enterprise-wide EHRs.
“DataMotion Direct is a core component of Northwell’s HIE infrastructure. We are continuously adding providers through our Clinically Integrated Network – Northwell Health Physician Partners – and practice consolidation, so interoperability issues are a constant challenge for the IT group,” said Jim Heiman, AVP clinical information systems and HIE program director for Northwell. “DataMotion Direct Secure Messaging gives us a reliable, easy-to-deploy and economical interoperability solution that fills communications gaps, accelerates healthcare delivery and easily pays for itself by achieving quality metrics.”
DataMotion Direct is integrated with Northwell’s InterSystems HealthShare HIE platform and also connects to its Siemens registration systems. Expansion to accommodate Northwell’s growth is simplified by DataMotion’s RESTful APIs and its intuitive Direct Messaging administration portal.
“We’re thrilled to have Northwell Health join the DataMotion community,” said Bob Janacek, CEO DataMotion. “By offering our customers best-of-breed, innovative technology under one platform, providers benefit from a quick, easy way to securely exchange medical information. Patients also have a better experience, marked by improved care and better health outcomes. We look forward to working with Northwell to implement their vision for connected care.”
