HealthInfoNet Selects Health Language as Technology Partner for Maine Information Exchange

The exchange is moving from a two-year pilot to a full-state implementation.

Portland, Me.-based HealthInfoNet, a nonprofit organization managing the health information exchange for Maine, has contracted Denver-based Health Language (HLI) to support its clinical content integration strategy for the full-state implementation.

HealthInfoNet will leverage HLI’s Language Engine to integrate and manage the latest medical terminologies within healthcare applications accessible to clinicians on the Maine HIE. The engine provides access to current versions of more than 100 clinical and administrative code sets, including SNOMED CT, ICD-9 and ICD-10, LOINC, CPT, RxNorm, HCPCS and others, and allows incorporation and mapping of local content to standards, according to a release.

“Health Language has distinguished itself as a global I.T. leader that supports clinically integrated HIEs,” Devore Culver, CEO of HealthInfoNet, says in a statement. “Their robust content and toolset solution provides the flexibility necessary to handle our own content mapping and offers a distinct advantage to expand the health information exchange to all Maine health care providers.”
