Initiate Systems Inc., a provider of master data management and interoperable health solutions, and Accenx, a provider of health information exchange solutions, report that Accenx will offer fully managed, remote hosting of Initiate PatientT for health care customers. The first customer for the joint solution is OhioHealth, a family of 15 hospitals, 20 health and surgery centers, home-health providers, medical equipment and health service suppliers throughout a 46-county area. “OhioHealth is routinely recognized for clinical excellence and innovation, and maintaining this leadership position requires the near-constant upgrading of applications and implementation of new information systems,” says Mrunal Shah, MD, ABFM, VP of Physician Technology and OhioHealth Information Services. “We’ve been a long-standing customer of Accenx, and the option of hosting Initiate Patient with them allowed us to implement the solution sooner. The Accenx team will focus on integrating our applications rather than spending time on the mechanics of installing new hardware and software in our environment.” Initiate Patient is used as an enterprise master person index for health care organizations and government agencies to transform critical business processes by delivering higher quality information to them. Initiate Patient delivers a comprehensive, single view of patients to end-users in real time at the point of care.“The combination of Initiate’s award-winning interoperable health software and Accenx’s core competency of delivering solutions over the Internet provides hospitals and health systems with a unique interoperable health deployment alternative,” says Sean Cassidy, VP, products for Initiate Systems. “Hosting Initiate Patient through Accenx offers customers faster time to value, and reduced total cost of ownership.”
