The demands on healthcare IT departments to configure, test, and deliver HL7 interfaces, for sharing mission critical data across patient care, financial and population health analytics systems, continue to grow rapidly. As hospitals look to cost-effectively architect accurate, real-time interoperability across systems, Summit Exchange delivers the technology to effectively leverage specific healthcare formats and messaging standards to meet immediate integration goals, while laying the foundation for future initiatives.


Patient care rarely begins and ends within the four walls of a hospital. As care coordination advances and reimbursement models evolve with a heightened focus on value and quality, it is incumbent on organizations to share patient data securely and seamlessly with stakeholders across the continuum of care. Summit Exchange allows you to extend your integration outreach by offering Web Services, IHE ITI, and Direct Secure Messaging to address your transition of care needs such as bi-directional CCD integration.


As health care delivery and reimbursements shift from volume-based to value-based business models, ambulatory and acute providers successes have never been more entwined.  Improved coordination, communication and integration between hospitals and physicians is essential to advancing quality of care and succeeding financially in the new era of healthcare. Summit Exchange provides a powerful, long-term foundation for through which you can further unlock the potential of supporting your bi-directional integration and proactive communication initiatives, with your owned, affiliated, or non-affiliated provider community.
