Covisint Signs Cloud Deal With Texas Doctors Group

Cloud-based platform will allow physicians to access clinical and administrative tools and exchange patient data via a secure portal.

Covisint, a subsidiary of Compuware, has signed a deal with Genesis Physicians Group, the largest independent doctor association in North Texas, to provide a cloud-based, on-demand collaboration platform for clinical and administrative applications and secure data exchange.

Genesis, which has about 1,400 clinicians in the Dallas area, will be using Covisint's single sign-on, on-demand platform to access third-party clinical and administrative applications, such as e-prescribing and referral management, as well as to securely exchange patient data, says Brett Furst, Covisint VP of healthcare.

As the federal government works out the details of its $20 billion health IT stimulus program, the definition of "meaningful use" will require that healthcare providers "demonstrate the exchange" of key health data, says Furst.

The Covisint platform will not only help Genesis' physicians access clinical and administrative tools via a portal, but serve as a vehicle for the exchange of data that's an important element in the government's e-health stimulus programs, he says.

Covisint is also providing its collaborative environment to about a dozen other health information exchange efforts in the U.S., says Furst. The largest is an initiative launched last year in Tennessee, in which Covisint and AT&T are partnering to provide doctors statewide with a hosted, broadband infrastructure for health data exchange.
