CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Alert Notification, LLC, has joined the Verizon Medical Data Exchange, which; “…provides a means to accelerate the sharing of a wide range of digital health information between physicians and health care organizations,” according to Dr. Peter Tippett, vice president, technology and innovation, Verizon Business. “The exchange offers a path forward for all players across the entire electronic medical record ecosystem to share digital health data. The addition of companies such as Alert Notification will enable the exchange to reach its full potential.”
Launched in March, the Medical Data Exchange from Verizon now enables a wide range of health care providers to securely and privately share digital records such as dictated physician notes, X-rays and lab results. Available nationally and fully interoperable, the Verizon Medical Data Exchange is a pivotal step toward the sharing of electronic medical records in the U.S. The exchange was originally created to facilitate transcriptionist-to-physician and physician-to-physician sharing of dictated notes.
Robert Smith, president of Alert Notification says; “Our mission to protect our members, by providing emergency medical personnel with timely medical history, aligns perfectly with the mission of the Verizon Medical Data Exchange. Mr. Smith adds; “We will use the exchange in conjunction with our Alert Notification service to quickly and securely collect, manage and share sensitive patient data when it’s needed the most.”
