Maine's Health Information Exchange, HealthInfoNet, announced that it will deploy Orion Health’s precision medicine platform.

Orion's Amadeus platform leverages an open and scalable database to capture, store and align patient information from multiple providers and payers.

The HealthInfoNet deal with Orion is pending final review by the HealthInfoNet Board of Directors, and the financial terms were not released.

HealthInfoNet also plans to incorporate Orion Health's integrated population health applications – Coordinate and Amadeus Analytics. The goal is to ensure the timely delivery of insightful patient information to healthcare professionals, HealthInfoNet COO Shaun Alfreds said.

HealthInfoNet's HIE contains 98 percent of all Maine residents' clinical information and is connected to all Maine hospitals and more than 500 ambulatory care sites.

Alfreds said HealthInfoNet chose Orion Health for the precision medicine platform because of its single suite of open source, scalable products that offer in-depth analysis and interoperability at both a population and an individual patient level.

"The precision medicine tools will allow us to bring to fruition a new data exchange that expands beyond the delivery system to incorporate social services, genomics, and other unstructured data that will in turn empower Maine residents to be active participants in their health in a new 'data-informed' ecosystem,” Alfreds said in a statement.
