AT&T, Covisint, and Microsoft to Launch eHealth Initiative

Three major technology vendors;

  1. San Antonio-based AT&T
  2. Detroit-based Covisint and
  3. Redmond, Wash.-based Microsoft

have combined their services to create a national health information exchange network.

The eHealth information exchange, enabled by Covisint’s On-Demand Healthcare Platform and layered on AT&T’s patented eHealth solutions and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) network, shares information electronically and in a security-enhanced way across the continuum of care — from patient to provider communities such as HealthVault, health-information exchanges and insurers.

The combined platform offers various clinical applications, including:

 

  • Electronic prescribing
  • Clinical messaging
  • Sharing of X-rays MRIs and CT scans
  • Exchanging of patient information from personal health records
  • Uploading of data from home health devices such as blood pressure meters and glucometers
  • Telemedicine services
