Philadelphia, PA – December 7, 2020 – HealthShare Exchange (HSX), an industry leader in making electronic patient-care information available to the greater Philadelphia healthcare community, today announced that it is integrating the CareAlign (formerly TrekIT) technology into the HSX MarketStreet platform. The integration of CareAlign into the MarketStreet platform combines the power of data and technology within a single mobile application that gives providers a way to effectively use data across the patient continuum of care.
“With the distribution of patient care across multiple providers – even within a single hospital – it is critical that every member of the care team has access to the same information in real-time. This capability is important for both point-of-care decision-making as well as long-term patient care,” said Dr. Subha Airan-Javia, Founder and CEO of CareAlign. “This partnership will provide a platform for healthcare teams across the region to access HSX’s actionable data streams, enabling high-quality, coordinated patient care across multiple disciplines.”
The CareAlign technology supports clinical workflows by enabling care teams to collaborate within the same digital workspace in real time. This replaces the antiquated and inefficient work done on paper and ultimately ensures the highest level of care. CareAlign brings together data from various clinical information systems, electronic health records (EHRs) and medical devices into one seamless, clinically intuitive display that helps care teams understand a patient’s needs. Coupled with CareAlign’s one of a kind integrated rounding, handoff and task list, clinicians have what they need to provide the highest quality care.
MarketStreet, a subsidiary of HealthShare Exchange, is a multi-sided platform that securely connects health systems, health plans, other healthcare entities and patients to innovative partners that are developing and supporting products, applications and services employing health data and/or healthcare integration. The platform allows secure, permissioned distribution of patient health information to and from provider and provider organizations, as well as individual consumers.
“HealthShare Exchange is proud to partner with innovative companies like CareAlign that are using data to deliver patient care across the full healthcare continuum – from doctors and nurses, to pharmacies and outpatient facilities,” said Brian Wells, Chief Technology Officer and Chief Information Security Officer at HealthShare Exchange. “By integrating into the MarketStreet platform, CareAlign can take advantage of the real-time data coming through the HSX network, avoid costly and time-consuming integrations with hundreds of individual healthcare entities, and enable more informed patient care across the Philadelphia region.”
With more than 400 member organizations, HealthShare Exchange gathers and securely delivers electronic patient health information on more than 12 million patients throughout the Greater Philadelphia region. It links together the disparate electronic medical records (EMR) systems of hospitals, health systems, health plans, post-acute care organizations and other healthcare stakeholders to support continuity of care throughout the community.
CareAlign was created by a team of clinicians and engineers led by Dr. Subha Airan-Javia at Penn Medicine, and has been transformative to clinical workflows across care settings from ICUs to clinical specialties such as Medicine, Cardiology, Surgery and more. Originally focused on reducing error prone and inefficient paper-based workflows, the platform has evolved to provide real-time patient data, streamline documentation and facilitate team-based care to enable better patient outcomes. In use by over 150 different clinical services and over 5,000 users a month, CareAlign is making patient data iterative and actionable, enabling an environment for collaboration across all disciplines and clinical settings.
