CSMS-IPA Joins CTHealthLink

CTHealthLink, in association with the Connecticut State Medical Society (CSMS), is pleased to announce that the Connecticut State Medical Society- Independent Practice Association (CSMS-IPA) has partnered with the physician-led, statewide interoperable health information exchange (HIE).

“We are excited about of our recent collaboration with CTHealthLink,” comments Neysa Guerino, Executive Director of CSMS-IPA.  She added, “through CTHealthLink we can now provide our physicians with reliable, tested, HIE technology that will help them in their practice.  Physicians will also benefit by utilizing the quality metrics and analytics, with the CSMS-IPA’s assistance, designed to help them navigate changes in the healthcare system.”

Participation in the HIE can improve care coordination by allowing connected physicians, hospitals and other providers to share patient health information in a HIPAA compliant manner.  The HIE will  includes information from all providers and facilities from whom a patient has received care. Physicians can proactively manage their patients’ care in ways that have never been possible before.

Jeffrey Gordon, MD, chair of the CTHealthLink Governance Committee said, “We are thrilled to have the CSMS-IPA join CTHealthLink as a trusted partner. They are a valuable addition in our effort to enhance care delivery and build bridges through increased connectivity across our state, while providing physicians and other clinicians usable health analytics and resources designed to improve patient care.”
