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:
MEDfx partners with GenieMD to provide patients access to their longitudinal personal health records across a connected healthcare ecosystem to support more proactive engagement in their care and the care of their family members.
