Chicago HIE to host 9.4M healthcare records

InformationWeek, April 28, 2011

The MetroChicago Health Information Exchange (HIE), which will help clinicians share the digitized medical records of more than 9.4 million patients, is being constructed by the Metropolitan Chicago Healthcare Council (MCHC) with the help of Microsoft, CSC, and HealthUnity. Details of MCHC's plans reveal that the MetroChicago HIE will use Microsoft's Amalga, an enterprise health intelligence platform, to aggregate and present a unified view of patient medical history data at the time and point of care. Through Amalga, the MetroChicago HIE can organize healthcare information electronically across organizations, rapidly bringing together current data from a wide variety of clinics and hospital departments. Billed as the largest metropolitan HIE in the nation, the exchange will also use CSC's project management, implementation, hosting, and support services.
