Through strategic relationships with leading technology and analytics vendors, Healthix has become the largest public Health Information Exchange (HIE) in the nation. We deliver data of over 16 million patients, utilizing sophisticated algorithms to link the patient with his or her records from more than 200 healthcare organizations at over 1,300 facilities. This enables Healthix to provide a comprehensive view of the patient’s aggregated record.
Our partners’ willingness to collaborate with us to further the development of public HIE, coupled with their leading-edge solutions, have helped make Healthix services innovative, interconnected and integral to clinical data access and delivery.
Healthix has been working closely with several EHR vendors to develop a hosted exchange platform or hub. The model allows Healthix to connect to the EHR Hub (center) to exchange data with multiple practices and healthcare organizations. This efficient and cost-effective approach saves time and removes the need for individual practices to connect directly to Healthix.

InterSystems HealthShare and Health Insight platforms form the foundation of the Healthix HIE.
InterSystems HealthShare is an informatics platform and solutions family for connected care. It provides advanced interoperability to connect health systems across a health system, region, or entire nation. HealthShare enables Healthix participants to aggregate, share, and analyze data in real-time to provide a complete picture of the patient’s health record.
Health Insight is a robust analytics development solution that unlocks the value of shared health information for population and performance management.
A foundational component of our platform is IBM Master Data Management (MDM) module, a patient matching algorithm application that enables Healthix to confidently match patient data across participating healthcare organizations within the health information exchange. The algorithm creates a Master Person Index (MPI) that links patient records from multiple providers into a singular data set. Patient matching is critical to delivering a complete and accurate record of patient health, and it improves both care quality and population health.
Since 2007, we have relied on J2 for interface and application development, analytics, systems support, project management, and strategic technology consulting.
J2 has helped extend HealthShare’s core capabilities to support a series of innovative features and programs which include:
HBI’s Spotlight Data Solution, applications and risk models use real-time clinical, billing, and claims data to provide Healthix’ participants with actionable information to improve patient care care and proactively monitor complex patient populations. HBI’s solutions consist of predictive risk models, dashboards, reports, and scorecards to support population health, risk management, readmission management, and quality improvement activities.
Mirth Mail, a HIPAA-compliant, robust direct message system powers our integrated provider messaging. Mirth helps improve care transitions and care coordination through improved alerting, notifications, and clinical document distribution.
Mirth Mail features on-boarding, registration, a webmail client interface, a multi-tiered administration system, a standards-compliant provider directory, and chat capabilities.
Verato leverages an innovative, big-data approach to patient matching that can link records even if patient demographic data is old, is sparse, or contains errors. Verato uses this approach to provide Healthix with a real-time, cloud-based patient matching service that automatically processes difficult match decisions that would otherwise become manual tasks in Healthix’s patient matching workflow. This saves Healthix time and effort—and ultimately leads to better health outcomes.
eHealth Technologies, is our medical imaging partner, that provides access to diagnostic quality medical images for Healthix users as an integral part of their patients’ longitudinal health record. eHealth Connect® Image Exchange enables authorized Healthix users to view radiology, cardiology and EKG studies in conjunction with results reports from any connected PACS location on eHealthViewer® ZF – a unified, zero-footprint, web-based viewing platform that is also a fully diagnostic-quality FDA 510(k) Class II medical device. They can compare imaging studies from different PACS locations in a single image viewing session, collaborate with other Healthix users in a shared image viewing session, and transfer external priors into their local PACS simply, securely and efficiently.
