HEAL NY Grantee to Implement Regional Health Information Exchange

SAN JOSE, CA–( EMWNews – April 1, 2008) – Elmhurst and Queens Hospital Centers, members

of the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation, announced the

selection of Axolotl Corp. to implement a regional health information

exchange. With a commitment to delivering the highest quality of patient

care, Elmhurst and Queens Hospital Centers will utilize Axolotl’s advanced

Elysium® technology to connect community healthcare participants and

provide an electronic system for real-time delivery and sharing of clinical

information among healthcare professionals.

“Elmhurst Hospital Center is dedicated to building a superior healthcare

organization with a far-reaching vision. Axolotl’s HIE was selected after

careful evaluation of the alternatives,” said Chris Constantino, Executive

Director of Elmhurst Hospital Center. “We’re excited to incorporate this

market-leading technology as the health information exchange component of

our future vision. We believe that health information exchange will

benefit both professionals and patients in our community by creating real

opportunities to improve healthcare quality and safety.”

Using Axolotl’s community-wide Patient Index to ensure correct

identification of all patients, providers in Queens will have the ability

to access laboratory reports, radiology reports/eImaging, medication

history, allergies and other important patient information across the

region, via a secure web application. As well as connecting to ambulatory

care Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems, data will be available

through Axolotl’s Virtual Health Record and its EMR-Lite product.

Physicians will also use Axolotl’s integrated e-prescribing solution, with

connectivity to SureScripts and RxHub networks for prescriptions, renewals,

formulary and eligibility data.

“Axolotl is delighted to partner with Elmhurst and Queens Hospital Centers,

providing the technology and professional services to connect their

healthcare community and improve patient care outcomes,” said Ray Scott,

CEO of Axolotl. “These hospitals have shown a strong sense of community

and leadership — with Axolotl’s proven technology and expertise in

connecting communities, we will be building on that leadership to provide

full connectivity to all regional participants over the next 3 years.”
