First National Health Information Network for Medical Record Exchange Released By MedUnity
For Immediate Release:
East Sandwich, MA / January 10, 2006 - MedUnity, a privately held company, has launched the first National Health Information Network (NHIN) for electronic medical record exchange. The service, known as SMREx (tm)(Simple Medical Record Exchange), allows any medical practice in the US to instantly and securely exchange electronic medical records. The SMREx service allows practices to exchange progress notes, lab results, consult letters, and other electronic patient information using the Internet.

In 2004, President Bush called on the healthcare industry to create a National Health Information Network by 2014. The Network, Bush described, would ultimately allow a practice in California to “pull” a patient's record instantly from a hospital in Maine. “MedUnity knows how vital an NHIN for electronic patient record exchange system is to improve patient outcome while containing health care costs,” said Joshua Howard Brimdyr, President and CEO of MedUnity, “so we put every effort into getting the job done ahead of schedule.”

MedUnity has designed the system to overcome the technology implementation hurdles which have hampered adoption of technology in healthcare, mainly cost to implement and initial startup efforts required. Using an internet browser and a simple “copy and paste” methodology, every practice will be able to send medical records directly to a receiving practice, department and/or provider. Practices will also be able to request records from other practices. “It takes about an hour of training time to begin using the system effectively”, said Brimdyr.

Brimdyr hopes that these reduced barriers to entry will spark a revolution in the exchange of medical records. “We made it easy to learn, easy to use, and have reduced startup cost and time to almost zero. None of the other regional exchange systems available today can offer that combination. MedUnity’s SMREx service enables the largest and smallest practices across the entire USA to work together on a level playing field. SMREx will significantly improve the continuity of care between practices for patients. The additional benefit is the savings in administrative costs.” said Brimdyr.

MedUnity is so inspired about the potential upside of the SMREx service that it will be offering SMREx free of charge to small and mid-sized practices thru May 2006. For more information visit http://www.medunity.com.
