LifeBridge Health and Saint Agnes Hospital
LifeBridge Health and Saint Agnes Hospital partner to bridge health record divide with first hospital-to-hospital HIE in Maryland.
Credited as being Maryland's first operational hospital-to-hospital HIE, LifeBridge Health and Saint Agnes Hospital selected HealthUnity to power their regional HIE. LifeBridge Health and Saint Agnes Hospital have previously invested in electronic medical record and clinical decision support systems to improve patient care. The HIE project, a successful proof-of-concept linking consumers and health care providers was funded signifcantly by CareFirst Blue Cross BlueShield and LifeBridge Health and is the first in a statewide effort to bridge health information gaps between hospitals through electronic health information exchange.
