The companies have complementary solutions that provide IPAs and health plans with clinical and administrative patient data in a dashboard view, accessed via a secure web browser. Having an electronic patient record available at the point of care improves the quality of care delivery and lowers costs by providing actionable and comprehensive information to providers in a single view.
A key feature of the solution is the ability to leverage an organization's existing infrastructure. Darryl Low, president of MZIHC comments, "Our partnership with ICW allows us to offer a viable solution to the problem of connectivity for system-wide network communications that allows the creation of consolidated electronic patient records, simplifying administrative and medical processes for physicians."
A defining characteristic of ICW's solution is its flexibility in aggregating data from EZ CAP along with other data sources such as pharmacies, laboratories, hospit-als, and physicians offices, and providing core information in the form of an elec-tronic patient record.
Jeremy Coote, CEO of ICW Inc., notes, "Connectivity and the ability to deliver true interoperability are critical factors in the success of this partnership. By com-bining the EZ CAP platform and ICW solutions, we can deliver relevant data to all stakeholders in the care continuum, when and where it is needed. Moreover, our customers will have an extendable platform, ready for the integration of value-added applications."
ICW has recently implemented its interoperable solution at an existing EZ CAP customer in southern California.
