New Health Information Organization to Deploy Orion Health’s Precision Medicine Platform throughout Minnesota

Scottsdale, Ariz. — June 21, 2016 — Orion Health™ has signed an agreement with Minnesota state-certified health information organization (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. The recently established HIO 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 said Koble-MN has adopted a collaborative model, working with stakeholders to provide the oversight required to ensure better healthcare 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,” said McCrae. 

“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 personalized care known as precision medicine,” added McCrae. 

Koble-MN president and CEO Chad Peterson said 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,” said Peterson. 

Orion Health president for North America Wayne Oxenham said the Amadeus platform is gaining favorable 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 services they provide,” said Oxenham. “By utilizing shared core services and standards, Orion Health technology can greatly improve the collaboration among participating States and HIE organizations.”
