PureWellness Enables Continuity of Care Document (CCD) Integration for Wellness and Prevention Records

New Health Information Exchange Between the PureWellness Solution and CCD-Supported Electronic Health Records

BURLINGTON, Vt., Sept. 4, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PureWellness, the leading Enterprise Health & Wellness Solution, recently announced the release of HL7 standards-based Continuity of Care Documents (CCD) for health information exchange between the PureWellness solution and CCD-supported Electronic Health Records.

The new CCD integration enables members and health coaches to synchronize and share lifestyle, behavior, and risk information with care providers and their associated data networks. CCD is the adopted standard by most Electronic Health Records systems and the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®). Not only is CCD support a critical component in connecting patients and providers, it's vital to successfully administering effective ACOs, PCMH and other patient engagement strategies.

"Members, patients and providers can now share key health and prevention data with other pertinent health information systems. This capability advances the coordination of patient-centered care, which plays an important role in controlling health care costs and improving health and wellness strategies," said Ken Kaufman, President and Co-founder of PureWellness.

"We have made great strides in getting the most value from Electronic Health Records and implementing innovative care models. With their continued commitment to driving patient and member engagement opportunities, and a keen focus on maintaining system integrity, PureWellness is a critical partner in our efforts," said Janet Tomcavage, Geisinger Health Plan's Chief Administrative Officer of Health Services.
