Verizon will soon make available its Verizon Health Information Exchange designed to share patient information electronically across a wide range of IT platforms and software. The Verizon Health Information Exchange will consolidate clinical patient data from providers and translate it into a standardized format that can be securely accessed over the Web.

Participating exchange providers across communities, states and regions will be able to request patient data via a secure online portal, regardless of the IT systems and specific protocols the providers use.  This will enable providers to obtain a more complete view of a patient’s health history, no matter where the data is stored.

"By breaking down the digital silos within the U.S. health care delivery system, the Verizon Health Information Exchange will address many of the interoperability barriers that prevent sharing of clinical data between physicians, clinics, hospitals and payers," said Kannan Sreedhar, VP and global managing director, Verizon Connected Health Care Solutions, in a statement.

To build out the solution, Verizon will leverage the capabilities of several key technology and service providers – MEDfx, MedVirginia and Oracle – to deliver key features of the service including: clinical dashboard , record locator service, cross-enterprise patient index and secure clinical messaging.

MedVirginia is an enterprise client planning to adopt Verizon’s new platform. MedVirginia is Richmond-based consortium of health care providers, serving central Virginia.
