Metropolitan Chicago Healthcare Council to Develop Nation's Largest Metro Health Information Exchange 2011.04.30

Chicago, USA - April 25, 2011 - The Metropolitan Chicago Healthcare Council (MCHC) is pleased to announce its decision to develop the MetroChicago Health Information Exchange (HIE), which is expected to be the largest metropolitan HIE in the nation, serving more than 9.4 million people. MCHC selects combined Microsoft Amalga and CSC SaaS solution to power data aggregation and analysis.

The Metropolitan Chicago Healthcare Council is a membership and service association comprising more than 150 hospitals and health care organizations working together, since 1935, to improve the delivery of health care services in the greater metropolitan Chicago area. MCHC's Conference Center is the perfect location for meetings or special events.

Metropolitan Chicago Healthcare Council to Develop Nation’s Largest Metro Health Information Exchange to Improve Quality of Care and Cost Efficiencies


The Metropolitan Chicago Healthcare Council (MCHC) is pleased to announce its decision to develop the MetroChicago Health Information Exchange (HIE), which is expected to be the largest metropolitan HIE in the nation, serving more than 9.4 million people.

The new exchange will use Microsoft Corp., CSC and HealthUnity Corp. technologies to drive quality care improvements and cost efficiencies for Chicago healthcare consumers.

The MCHC
recognizes the potential for HIEs to improve individual care and population health through selected technologies that support both goals.

By enabling the flow of data across healthcare organizations, the MetroChicago HIE expects positive outcomes due to more comprehensive views of patient information.

These include decreased costs from fewer redundant tests across care settings, reduction in time spent gathering information about patients, and greater efficiency in identifying patients requiring ongoing ambulatory care.

“MCHC is charting a new course with the MetroChicago HIE,” said Mary Anne Kelly, vice president of MCHC.
“The HIE will be one of the largest in the country and will allow our region’s healthcare market to improve efficiency by creating a network where health information flows with the patient, no matter where care is received. The reaction from local hospitals has been overwhelmingly positive. Seventy percent of hospitals in the Chicago metro area have already become founding members of the HIE, which is a testament to area healthcare organizations’ stalwart commitment to improving quality and patient safety.”

The MetroChicago HIE
will use Microsoft Amalga, an enterprise health intelligence platform, to aggregate and present a unified view of patient medical history data at the time and point of care, and CSC will provide project management, implementation, hosting and support services.

Microsoft Amalga centralizes digital information of all types into a single, continually updated repository that is available for analysis and data sharing.

Software components from HealthUnity will work in combination with Amalga to provide foundational HIE services and continuity of care document exchange services.

These technologies will give the MetroChicago HIE a powerful engine to quickly aggregate and analyze data across patient cohorts and populations, enabling care transformation.

“As the industry continues to focus on delivering value — better care at the same, or lower, costs — the flow of data across organizational boundaries and the ability to analyze and report on data across patient populations is increasingly important,” said Peter Neupert, corporate vice president of the Health Solutions Group at Microsoft.
“MCHC is leading its healthcare provider members to adopt technologies that can help drive value throughout the care delivery process, enabling a healthier population.”

“CSC is looking forward to delivering a powerful solution that gives MCHC the ability to analyze data across populations, enhance quality of care within that community and use the data to improve coordination across the continuum of care,” said Mark Roman, president of CSC Global Healthcare Group.
“Our experience designing, building and running the nation’s first health information exchange in Massachusetts, and advanced capabilities in software-as-a-service cloud delivery platforms, will bring technology to deliver better information for better decisions to improve patient care for MCHC and residents of the Greater Chicago Metropolitan area.”

The MetroChicago HIE
will initially build use cases that are aligned with meaningful use incentives, as outlined in the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, passed in 2009.

The goal is to implement functionality that offers value to the largest number of stakeholders and that can be deployed quickly.

The first two use cases to be deployed will be Clinical Summary - Emergency Department (ED) Linking, allowing authorized healthcare providers to see a consolidated view of the patient’s medical history, with input regarding test results, problems and medication information from other providers across the region.

This information is crucial, especially during medical emergencies, when patients may not be able to tell providers about their health history, medications they take or allergies.

And, because of available information from the ED, Public Health Reporting can be supported to monitor emerging outbreaks of influenza or disease patterns for early surveillance across the MetroChicago region.

The Microsoft Connected Health Conference brings together stakeholders from across the healthcare ecosystem for learning, networking, and discussion on the most important issues facing healthcare organizations today, including the role of technology in transforming healthcare delivery and personal health management. We invite you to join this forum for engaging with peers, industry thought leaders, and Microsoft executives as we discuss what’s next in health.

More than 66 hospitals and major outpatient care organizations have submitted letters of intent to MCHC to participate in this industry-led initiative.

Participating organizations will fund the HIE, as opposed to short-term grant funding from government or other outside entities.

A Twitter session accompanying this announcement will be held tomorrow, April 26, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Central Standard Time and hosted at the Microsoft Connected Health Conference.

Peter Neupert Welcome Message


Welcome, friends and colleagues, to the Microsoft Connected Health Conference 2011!

We are living in a time of significant change in healthcare: new delivery models and partnerships are emerging; consumers are expecting more convenience and value from the healthcare system; technology innovations are driving more efficient, higher-quality care; and governments around the world are looking at ways to encourage and support value creation in their healthcare systems.

Bringing the required changes to healthcare is hard. It will take all of us - patients, physicians, hospitals, health insurers, and technology companies working together to achieve real reform.

Thank you for your continued partnership and thought leadership on this journey.

I look forward to seeing you in April.

Peter Neupert, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Health Solutions Group

As corporate vice president of the Microsoft Health Solutions Group, Peter Neupert is responsible for driving the company's strategy to improve healthcare around the world through software innovation.

He leads a global organization dedicated to developing, marketing, selling and supporting software solutions designed specifically to improve the quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery and to empower individuals to become more engaged and responsible for their own health and wellness.

Under his leadership since its formation in 2005, the Health Solutions Group has brought two primary software platforms to market: Amalga, a data aggregation platform for hospitals and health systems, and HealthVault, a personal health application platform designed to put individuals in control of their own health information.

Both software platforms are designed to unlock the health data traditionally stored in separate information technology systems and make it readily accessible to the people who need it - whether emergency room doctors, primary care physicians, nurses, specialists, patients or family caregivers - to make more informed care decisions.

Although Neupert began his career in technology, he became immersed in the world of health when he served as president and chief executive officer of drugstore.com Inc. from July 1998 to April 2001, and as chairman of the board of directors through September 2004.

He led drugstore.com to become a top online retail store and information site for health, wellness, beauty and pharmacy products, and received an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award for his work.

From 2003 to 2005, he served on the President's Information Technology Advisory Committee (PITAC), co-chairing the Health Information Technology subcommittee and helping to drive the "Revolutionizing Health Care Through Information Technology" report, published in June 2004 by PITAC.

Before drugstore.com, from 1987 to 1998, Neupert served at Microsoft in various capacities, including as the director of operating systems responsible for shipping OS/2, and later for MSNBC as vice president of News and Publishing for the interactive media group.

Neupert is an active member of the Institute of Medicine's Roundtable on Value & Science-Driven Healthcare and serves on the board of trustees for the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the board of directors of GlobalScholar.com.

Viewed as an industry authority, Neupert has testified before Congress on multiple occasions, including in 2009 on health information technology reform.

He speaks at industry conferences on innovation and the impact of technology, and has contributed to leading publications including Health Affairs, Forbes and The Washington Post. He shares his observations and opinions on health in his personal blog, Neupert on Health.

Neupert holds a master's degree in business administration from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College and a bachelor's degree from Colorado College.

He is married with four children and lives in the state of Washington.
