January 6, 2011
Duffield, VA & Warminster, PA – OnePartner, LLC selects MobileMD, Inc. for Health
Information Exchange (HIE) component of innovative, cost effective, and rapidly deployed
Electronic Health Record (EHR) solution.
Leveraging popular cloud computing techniques designed specifically for the healthcare industry,
OnePartner has developed a health information technology ecosystem, called “onepartner eco
uniquely packaged and delivered to accelerate meaningful EHR adoption within the ambulatory
Mr. Tom Deaderick, Director of OnePartner, LLC announces the selection of MobileMD 4D HIE™ for
incorporation into the onepartner eco
solution. “Our parent company, Holston Medical Group (HMG)
adopted EHR in 1996. Selecting the right EHR system for a practice is important, as is
successfully navigating the initial implementation phase, but an EHR system that's not
connected to the community of referral and care partners, hospitals and laboratories will fail
to improve quality or reduce duplication and inefficiency. Even within the government’s
definition of Meaningful Use of EHR we can see that HIE is a required ingredient of success.
“The genesis of our EHR ecosystem cloud, onepartner eco
, is the importance of a connected EHR
system – a complete ecosystem,” says Deaderick. “Connectivity is the name of the game now.
You have to connect with referral partners, as well as regional and government HIEs.
allows subscribing physicians to choose from a menu of market leading
EHR products, including Allscripts, GreenWay and others with each system hosted in OnePartner's
Advanced Technology & Applications Center (ATAC) data center in Duffield, Virginia.
The MobileMD HIE serves as the communications hub for each of the EHR instances, connecting
subscribers in a seamless information delivery network and establishing an on-ramp to external
information exchange networks, managed by OnePartner and MobileMD.
“With the information technology and operational challenges facing healthcare providers today,
acceptance of cloud computing is skyrocketing,” says Deaderick. “The cloud model allows
providers to focus their energy on strategies and tactics that make their organization great.
Flow of information between referral partners is strategically important, but overseeing system
interfaces isn't. Simplifying communications between organizations is long overdue. Less
expensive, more scalable, and more reliable solutions are necessary. That's what MobileMD does
for onepartner eco
subscribers and that's why we selected them.”
“OnePartner’s ecosystem offers providers a simple, secure, connected platform for all of their
subscriber's needs while avoiding operational risk and vendor lock-in,” commented Chris Voigt,
MobileMD’s VP of Corporate Development. “Our 4D HIE serves as a foundation for the ecosystem,
allowing full integration of records for patient transfers and shared records. This connectivity
means onepartner eco
is ideally suited for participation in the industry’s latest
initiatives including Meaningful Use incentives, Accountable Care Organizations (ACO),
and Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMH).”
MobileMD offers the HIT industry’s only 4D HIE™, focusing on all aspects of progressive
healthcare delivery: 100% service (SaaS offering), technology benefit, economic benefit, and,
most importantly, care benefit. MobileMD utilizes a secure, scalable and flexible
