Wilmington, DE (February 16, 2023) – Nemours Children’s Health announced today that it was named a 2022 HSX Champion by HealthShare Exchange (HSX), an industry leader in clinical data sharing to support care management, quality improvement, and population health for the Delaware Valley healthcare community. This annual award recognizes the individuals and teams that went above and beyond to promote HSX within their organizations and extend the value and capabilities of HSX to other organizations.
“We named Nemours Children’s Health a 2022 HSX Champion because of the organization’s commitment to developing forward-thinking ways to leverage existing technologies,” said Martin Lupinetti, President and Chief Executive Officer at HealthShare Exchange. “This innovative mindset will allow the organization to continue to improve the patient and physician experience. We are proud to recognize Nemours for their collaboration and advocacy for information sharing.”
HSX gathers and ensures electronic patient health information is securely available at the point of care throughout the Delaware Valley’s healthcare ecosystem to deliver real-time clinical information. This information includes patient medical history, notifications to enable improved outcomes, care coordination, and recommendations for cost-effective care. Through HSX sharing these clinical records, organizations, like Nemours, can make more informed patient care decisions while reducing the need to transmit or transport paper-based medical information.
Marie Ruddy, Health Information Exchange Program Manager, and Paul Halucka, Integrations Solutions Engineer, from the Nemours team were specifically recognized for their work with HSX to integrate encounter notifications into Nemours’ Epic electronic medical record (EMR) workflows. Nemours was commended for its clear vision, deep understanding of clinicians’ needs, and willingness to push the boundaries of existing technologies.
“Nemours is constantly developing innovative ways to leverage new and existing technologies to improve the healthcare experience. In an increasingly automated and tech-reliant world, this work is crucial because it directly impacts all aspects of the healthcare ecosystem,” said Bernie Rice, Senior Vice President, Chief Information Officer, Nemours Children’s Health. “Our partnership with HSX speaks to our leadership in this area as we continue to work alongside like-minded organizations committed to sharing health information to improve the patient experience.”
