Connecting Healthcare
Since 1984.

MEDfx has a 30-year history of delivering solutions that automate practice workflows and enhance the care delivery process for physicians and their supporting staff. Today, our solutions are deployed to over 9,000 ambulatory providers across primary care and multi-specialty groups.

ABOUT US

In 2009, MEDfx expanded to the Enterprise market and built a highly scalable cloud-based platform using next-generation-technologies to address the challenges associated with fragmented patient data and disconnected care teams across any given community. MEDfx created health information exchanges (HIEs) for the ONC in eHealth Exchange trials, as well as state-wide, regional and private HIEs. MEDfx’s platform enables organizations to connect rapidly and collect data across the healthcare ecosystem and share patient data across disparate EHRs leveraging standards and APIs. Our platform’s application framework allows us to integrate with client applications and rapidly develop new applications. Our applications enable Care Coordination and Population Health Management across a healthcare community.


We focus on Population Health Management in a three key areas:

  1. Data Integration and Exchange Services – Our market leading Interface Engine and Integration Platform, Lifescape EDGE, goes beyond the limitations of traditional interface engines to support a full myriad of integration standards. We offer it as an on-premise solution or in an Integration-As-A-Service (IAAS) model, for access to longitudinal patient records, and can be extended into a standards-based bi-directional health information exchange.

  2. Ambulatory EHR – Our EHR solutions fully automate clinical practices across primary care and multi-specialty groups, including the front desk, clinical staff, and back office. Our solution extends beyond the typical EHR, in that it’s pre-built with our interoperability adapters to connect to other organizations easily—so that your practice works with external systems such as community EHRs, HIE’s, labs, imaging centers, hospitals, state agencies and more.

  3. Population Health Management Apps – Harnessing the insights garnered from Analytics on patient data is a critical step in driving quality and reducing costs. Making those insights actionable is a key focus for MEDfx. The MEDfx PHM app suite is a set of Applications focused on providing targeted business value and enhancing Care Coordination as patients transition in care. From hospitals to care managers, primary care physicians, specialists, labs and more—the MEDfx PHM Apps integrate workflows and care plans across a patient’s care team.
