The System will facilitate data-sharing among patients, health plans and medical providers during natural disasters and other crises.
It will be based on HTG’s MediBook, a cloud-based, blockchain-powered solution.
United States, September 14, 2020 / AlexaBlockchain/ – HHS Technology Group, LLC™ (HTG) announced today that is partnering with the State of Utah to build and implement a Crisis Management Electronic Health Records System.
It will be a lightweight patient records solution that will facilitate data-sharing among patients, health plans and medical providers during natural disasters and other crises. The new solution will be based on HTG’s MediBook, a cloud-based, blockchain-powered solution that enables the management and sharing of complete longitudinal patient records across multiple, disparate systems.
“Crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic have the potential to affect thousands of lives, inflict widespread economic damage and confront state healthcare agencies with unprecedented challenges and uncertainty,” said Brett Furst, President of HTG.
“However, by implementing lightweight patient records solutions that enable seamless data-sharing among patients, providers and health plans, states can mitigate the health burdens experienced by patients during these challenging times. In addition, a number of supporting federal funding sources exist to help states with their emergency response strategies. HTG is proud to partner with the State of Utah on this important initiative,” Brett Furst added.
“States are looking for innovative ways to leverage information technology to help cities, counties, and residents better respond to natural disasters and crises such as COVID-19,” said Nick Lyon, former Director of Health and Human Services for Michigan.
