North Dakota Health Information Network Upgrades to the Orion Health Amadeus Platform to Improve the Exchange of Critical Clinical and Medication Data

The Scalable and Open Amadeus Platform Enables Providers to Identify Gaps in Care, Enhance Clinical Outcomes and Improve the Overall Cost of Care

BOSTON--()--Orion Health, a leading provider of population health management, interoperability and precise health solutions, today announced that the North Dakota Health Information Network (NDHIN) has expanded its relationship with the company by upgrading to the Orion Health Amadeus Platform. Using Amadeus, NDHIN providers can seamlessly share, view and receive patients’ immunization records, medication lists, histories, discharge summaries, lab results and radiology reports as well as share referrals electronically.

NDHIN is dedicated to improving healthcare for North Dakotans by creating a secure medical record sharing network for providers and consumers. The organization engaged with Orion Health in 2013 to power the state’s health information exchange (HIE). To further deliver on its mission and build on its previous work, NDHIN is now partnering with Orion Health to expand access to additional valuable real-time medication data and to implement new reporting tools to proactively monitor patients’ medication management and adherence. With the Amadeus platform, Orion Health can help enable providers to make more informed care decisions, improve the coordination of care across the healthcare continuum and, ultimately, drive better healthcare outcomes.

“Harnessing technology to serve citizens throughout North Dakota’s rural and urban communities is a priority, and these enhancements to the state’s Health Information Exchange are a great example of the improved data and information sharing enabled by the Amadeus platform,” said Shila Thorson, North Dakota Health Information Technology director. “By continuing to improve secure access to medical records and expanding the type of clinical communications that can be shared, we will be helping healthcare stakeholders and patients make more informed and timely healthcare decisions.”

Amadeus is an open and scalable platform for population health and precision medicine that delivers a comprehensive approach to acquiring, enriching, analyzing and presenting actionable clinical and claims data, as well as non-traditional data. With the platform, healthcare organizations have a solid foundation to execute population health management programs, support new and emerging value-based care models and prepare for precision medicine.

“HIE priorities are shifting as patients and providers have begun to realize the benefits of health data sharing. Now the more advanced HIEs, such as NDHIN, are looking at how to take it to the next level with additional tools for enhanced analytics, proactive notifications and new data types,” said Chad Peterson, vice president of public sector solutions at Orion Health. “We’re honored to expand our relationship with NDHIN as they enter this next phase in their evolution by providing them with the foundation needed to improve medication management and care coordination, as well as prepare them to tackle tomorrow’s healthcare challenges head on.”

Electronic health topics including the NDHIN will be discussed at the North Dakota Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) event in Bismarck, ND on June 17, 2019.
