ATLANTA, March 1, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HIMSS10 Conference (booth No. 4608) -- Covisint, a Compuware (Nasdaq:CPWR) company, today announced the launching of Covisint ExchangeLink™ for Healthcare. The Covisint solution is a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) ecosystem providing a one-stop choice for healthcare organizations and caregivers to securely access applications and exchange information across the entire care delivery system.

The Covisint ExchangeLink platform already serves more than 1,100 healthcare organizations nationally, including entire states, health information exchanges (HIEs), Medicaid programs, health systems and hospitals, as well as health plans. Organizations leveraging ExchangeLink's value include the American Medical Association, Minnesota Health Information Exchange (MNHIE) and many others--representing more than 290,000 physicians and care providers. Now, with Covisint ExchangeLink, all healthcare organizations and providers have the ability to communicate with one another through a single network.

Covisint ExchangeLink for Healthcare helps solve key challenges facing:

  • states and HIEs--Covisint ExchangeLink provides the health information sharing backbone, supporting and establishing a vendor-neutral exchange to access applications and to aggregate and exchange health information. Providing an adoption-based approach, this accelerates and simplifies physician and provider adoption of health information technology (HIT) across the extended care delivery setting. 
  • hospitals and health systems--Covisint ExchangeLink alleviates the burdens and inefficiencies of delivering information to the point-of-care, including for primary care physicians, specialists, post-acute providers, hospitals and clinics--regardless of their technical sophistication or the complexity of their systems. Focused on physician outreach and care coordination programs, benefits realized include competitiveness, time savings and a reduction for unnecessary re-admittances along with improved care quality.
  • physicians and associations--Covisint ExchangeLink electronically connects doctors across physician groups, including state-based and medical specialty societies. It enables physicians to easily adopt technology in a cost-effective and minimally disruptive way. ExchangeLink also improves the security and efficiency of healthcare by improving secure access through a single sign-on approach for labs, reporting, ePrescribing, billing, patient registries and other health information.

"Covisint's announcement demonstrates the importance of taking a true ecosystem approach to enabling the sharing of healthcare information from multiple sources, systems and even competitors, which will improve care delivery in unprecedented ways," said Dr. Steven Stack, Trustee with the American Medical Association. "This is a primary objective of the AMA Exchange, which utilizes Covisint ExchangeLink."

"The Minnesota Health Information Exchange has, since its inception, realized significant immediate value leveraging the ExchangeLink platform," said Mike Ubl, Executive Director of Minnesota Health Information Exchange, LLC. "The Covisint network enables MNHIE to continually grow its vision for long-term connectivity and sustainability across Minnesota--streamlining information to the point-of-care for our providers."

"Covisint, with ExchangeLink for Healthcare, is uniquely positioned to help companies address all three primary focus areas for obtaining HITECH funding," said Brett Furst, Covisint Vice President of Healthcare. "ExchangeLink connects the healthcare dots, enabling organizations and users to see each other within one common framework. The platform not only handles the interoperability and security issues regarding securely moving around personal health information on multiple technologies and systems, but it also directly addresses a fundamental requirement for satisfying meaningful use."
