MedeFile International, a leader in portable electronic medical records management has announced that it has signed a contract with Soren Technology. MedeFile was chosen to become the exclusive Personal Health Record vendor for Soren Technology’s Suite of Electronic Health Records products and the Soren Health Information Exchange. Soren Technology and MedeFile have partnered to offer health care providers an almost no cost EHR alternative to their current antiquated paper systems. The combined solution will provide patients access to their medical information 24×7 through MedeFile’s Personal Health Record systems. According to Barry Dorfman, Chief Operating Officer, Soren Technology health care providers need to respond rapidly to changes in business and health care delivery environments.
Information systems and users of the systems must be managed effectively to allow for meaningful information flow. Soren Technology works closely with partners and the medical community to ensure that patient information moves seamlessly between health care enterprises. MedeFile offers valuable tools that can increase patient awareness, curb medical errors, dramatically reduce costs and keep patients compliant in their medication regimen, all extremely important issues. Both companies anticipate a roll out of the plan over the next 30 days. The project will allow health care providers to utilize Soren’s suite of EHR products at virtually no charge. Soren’s EHR includes electronic interchange for ordering lab tests and E-prescribe, both are Meaningful Use components. Another objective for Meaningful Use involves immediate access of patients to their medical records and MedeFile’s program easily qualifies for this.
Additionally, all providers that use Soren Technology’s suite of services and deploy MedeFile’s integrated application will be able to offer their patients automatic enrollment in MedeFile’s Personal Health Record portable account system. MedeFile technology helps patients to be more proactive when it comes to being knowledgeable about their health and accessibility wherever they may be. The seamless integration allows members to easily access their medical history as data automatically synchronizes from the EHR to the PHR safely and securely.
