Healthfirst, a not-for-profit health plan serving more than one million members in the New York City metropolitan area, announced it is deploying the InterSystems HealthShare health informatics platform for its health information exchange (HIE) and clinical portal.

HealthShare will centralize clinical data from medical records and other sources for Healthfirst members, enabling the Healthfirst provider network, including hospitals and physicians, to exchange data in a secure and efficient manner. It will help Healthfirst members with providing necessary information to doctors.

“Healthfirst is collaborating with our sponsor hospitals and doctors to transform care for members,” said Deborah Hammond, Healthfirst vice president and medical director. “Our HIE will create a seamless and secure platform to deliver important clinical information to a provider at the point of care.”

Providers will have access to detailed information such as prescription drug usage and alerts for gaps in care such as missing preventive care services, Hammond said.

The clinical portal for clinicians works across the entire care network, including acute, community, mental health, social care, and general practitioner services.
