KINGSPORT, Tenn. WARMINSTER, Pa. Feb. 8, 2011 Feb. 21-24 Orange County Orlando, Fla.
The demonstration will be an actual implementation of the recently developed Direct Project technical constructs that enable a simple, secure, scalable, standards-based way for providers to send encrypted health information directly to known, trusted recipients over the Internet. CareSpark will demonstrate connectivity between CareSpark’s connected providers and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
The demonstration will showcase mammography referrals, and the exchange of orders and results that cross between the public and private sectors of healthcare, with the flow occurring between the VA and providers connected to CareSpark. This exchange streamlines operations, reduces manual handoffs, and can be integrated into a tighter framework of shared patient records. Mountain States Health Alliance is the planned first CareSpark participant to utilize this Direct exchange of real patient data with VA’s James H. Quillen Medical Center in Mountain Home, Tenn.
The demonstration is available for viewing within the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase in booth 7343.
It has a secure network that enables exchange of information for the purpose of patient care and treatment among physicians, hospitals, pharmacies, laboratories, imaging centers, public health departments and other facilities serving approximately 750,000 patients in the region. Supported by a consortium of technology partners, and engagement from leaders at local, state and federal levels, CareSpark’s infrastructure was designed with careful attention to standards and best practices for clinical care, protection of privacy and confidentiality, and system security.
