Geisinger App Connects to New EHR System, Advances Interoperability
Geisinger Health System and xG Health Soltuions announced that they have connected to a software app developed by Geisinger.
The Geisinger-invented Rheumatology app was initially developed to interact with the Epic Corporation EHR used by Geisinger.
This new “app approach” has potential to transform the delivery of healthcare by giving providers access to analyses of information that resides outside and/or inside the EHR, as well as decision support, regardless of the underlying EHR platform.
Geisinger expects to make apps like these available to other health care systems through xG Health Solutions.
xG Health Solutions was a company founded by Geisinger in 2013 to commercialize Geisinger innovations.
Geisinger Health System is a 1,765-bed health system based in Danville, PA. It is affiliated with 12 hospitals across Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
