Orion Health signs contract in Minnesota

U.S. health information organisation to deploy Orion Health’s precision medicine platform throughout Minnesota

Auckland, New Zealand—Orion Health (OHE:NZX/ASX) has signed an agreement with Minnesota state-certified health information organisation (HIO) Koble-MN to deploy its Amadeus precision medicine platform.

Koble-MN enables patient health records in communities to be shared among a range of sector participants such as hospitals, medical practices, government agencies and insurers.

Koble-MN is recently established and will look to achieve critical mass as it expands and aims to be the leading HIO provider in the state of Minnesota which has a population of over 5.4 million.

Orion Health CEO Ian McCrae says Koble-MN has adopted a collaborative model, working with stakeholders to provide the oversight required to ensure better heathcare outcomes for the State’s citizens through the sharing of healthcare information.

“By offering the Orion Health Amadeus platform, Koble-MN can ensure more comprehensive care coordination in Minnesota as it will provide multiple participants in the healthcare sector with state-wide access to accurate and real-time data,” Mr McCrae says.

“Today that data is primarily the patient’s medical record, soon it will include information on an individual’s genetic, environmental and social background, which will be necessary for the practice of personalised care known as precision medicine.”

Koble-MN President and CEO Chad Peterson says that together the Orion Health Amadeus precision medicine platform and Koble-MN services are a winning combination that will best serve the citizens of Minnesota’s health information exchange (HIE).

“Orion Health technology is a proven leader in the U.S. healthcare sector and Koble-MN provides the hands-on service that is required to ensure implementation success and trusted ongoing support,” Mr Peterson says.

Orion Health President for North America Wayne Oxenham says the Amadeus platform is gaining favourable attention throughout the U.S. healthcare sector, with Koble-MN being the fifth significant agreement to deploy Amadeus in the U.S.

“The Amadeus precision medicine platform assists HIEs such as Koble-MN to achieve greater sustainability for the important service they provide. By utilising shared core services and standards Orion Health technology can greatly improve the collaboration among participating States and HIE organisations,” Mr Oxenham says.
