The platform enables a higher quality of coordinated care and information access for health care organizations and their patients by integrating with leading inpatient and outpatient electronic health record systems. HHIT also provides a comprehensive suite of data management services, including data extraction, migration, retention, matching, integration, and records release.
In partnership with Novacap, HHIT is exploring new data handling and data use innovations to accelerate the company’s growth and expand its impact on health care globally. HHIT currently serves a large customer base that includes top-tier health systems, independent hospitals, and ambulatory networks, making them proficient in working with a wide array of clinical, financial, and administrative legacy systems.
