Health Gorilla inks deal with Scripps Health

Health Gorilla said it has announced an agreement with Scripps Health to provide access to imaging and lab data from its facilities to community physicians and their patients.

Health Gorilla is already used by thousands of doctors to automate their practices through instant, easy electronic lab and medical imaging orders, referrals, and test results, including Scripps affiliated medical groups Scripps Mercy Physician Partners and Mercy Physicians Medical Group (MPMG).

Under the agreement, the Health Gorilla Clinical Network will allow independent doctors and nurses to access Scripps´ stored patient data to avoid repeat tests, lower costs, and help eliminate errors in care. Due to HIPAA regulations, this data cannot be transferred via email, so physicians, labs, and hospitals with incompatible systems previously had to fax records from office to office, investing countless hours to send and receive results and reports.

With Health Gorilla, participating Scripps- affiliated physicians will now have access to an effective and compliant communications platform. Ambulatory personnel and hospital doctors, along with Scripps´ physician medical groups and unaffiliated doctor´s practices and labs, will all be connected in one place, where they can uniformly view patient records, place electronic orders, and access and share results.

Health Gorilla´s Clinical Network connects doctors, vendor partners, and consumers in a closed, HIPAA-compliant loop of information and communications.
