dbMotion Powers UC Irvine Healthcare’s Link to Area RHIO

dbMotion, an innovative provider of connected healthcare solutions, announced today that its interoperability platform has enabled University of California at Irvine (UCI), to successfully connect with the Orange County Partnership Regional Health Information Organization, Inc. (OCPRHIO).

UCI, a 422-bed medical facility, is the first of four participating healthcare providers to go live with a connection to OCPRHIO, Inc’s Health Information Exchange (HIE) called, OCUnites. dbMotion completed implementation of its solution on schedule, within UCI’s aggressive five-month timeline. “OCPRHIO is extremely pleased with extraordinary progress that dbMotion made and in the short amount of time it required to connect to our HIE,” said Paul Budilo, CEO of OCPRHIO, Inc. “Their team was very responsive and dbMotion’s technology solution and approach was very versatile which allowed much progress to be made quickly, thus allowing all organizations involved to realize significant cost savings.” The dbMotion platform, which organizes and harmonizes data captured by disparate health information technologies across the RHIO allows UCI providers to access consolidated patient information within their existing workflows in their preferred format, rather than exiting one application and logging into another.

Established in 2006, OCPRHIO, Inc. is well on its way in connecting to 20 distinct provider electronic health records (EHRs) and their many users within the southern California region. Currently, OCUnites manages 450,000 unique patient records. With development nearing the completion stage in the first quarter of 2013 to allow ancillary providers to share their data into the HIE, that number will only continue to grow.

“The industry now views health information exchange as essential to the delivery of high quality, cost-effective care,” says Peter McClennen, President of dbMotion North America. “The partnership between UCI and OCPRHIO, Inc. exemplifies this need, as the connection allows providers to access–and use–patient data from diverse systems at the point of care in a meaningful way.”

UCI’s connection to OCUnites reflects the needs of regional healthcare organizations to exchange patient information with one another. The RHIO connection also allows UCI to accomplish certain criteria in Stage Two of CMS’ meaningful use incentive program. dbMotion’s interoperability solution enables the organization to satisfy certain requirements by enabling individual EHRs to send and receive community information through multiple point-to-point connections and semantic aggregation.

“OCPRHIO’s architecture has enabled EHR users, such as UCI, to extend their reach into other patient care systems, giving providers an comprehensive view of the patient’s medical condition, history and active health services,” says Jim Murry, CIO of UC Irvine Health, Information Services. “dbMotion has successfully connected to OCPRHIO bi-directionally. dbMotion’s ability to produce and consume a continuity of care document, then integrate that with UCI’s EHR marks a giant leap forward to exchanging data with other healthcare organizations. In time we could potentially share information with any provider in Orange County, and beyond.”
