Harris Corporation Named a Leader in Packaged Health Information Exchange Solutions by IDC Health Insights
Highlights:
  • IDC Health Insights named Harris a leader in health information exchange among 10 selected for review.
  • Assessment highlights Harris' core technologies that enable workflow within legacy applications and between HIEs and EMRs.
  • Report concludes that health information organizations seeking health information exchange solutions should consider Harris as a vendor.

MELBOURNE, FL/WASHINGTON, October 8, 2012 - Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, today announced that it has been recognized as a leader in the packaged health information exchange (HIE) solutions segment by IDC Health Insights in its recent analysis, "IDC MarketScape: U.S. Health Information Exchange Packaged Solutions 2012 Vendor Assessment, Doc# HI235830, July 2012."

Vendors were selected for review based on estimated market share and potential for growth. The report examined vendors that offer packaged solutions consisting of modular software bundled with implementation, training, and support services. Packaged solutions, the report noted, seek to reduce the risk of uncertainty related to project scope, timelines, and cost.

The analysis conducted by Lynne Dunbrack, program director, Connected Health IT, IDC Health Insights, concluded that health information organizations "seeking a combination of interoperable HIE technology, composite applications that support clinician workflow, and clinical and financial dashboards that present actionable information aggregated across the enterprise should consider Carefx."

Carefx, acquired by Harris in 2011, was recognized in the report as a leader for capabilities and strategies among the 10 vendors evaluated based on vendor briefings, customer references and secondary research. IDC Health Insights provides business and IT decision-makers within healthcare organizations with fact-based research that informs and supports critical business decisions.

"A key differentiator [between Harris and its competitors] is that in addition to core HIE technology and composite applications, Carefx provides context management technology that complies with Clinical Context Object Workgroup standard, thus enabling workflow within the healthcare organizations' legacy applications and between the HIE and EMRs," Dunbrack wrote. "Harris has deep experience in the Nationwide Health Information Network. Harris was the prime developer of the CONNECT Gateway and was an active participant on the Direct Project. Harris deployed Direct Secure Messaging at Florida HIE, the first statewide HIE to use Direct for secure messaging between clinicians."

"The IDC MarketScape study confirms that Harris' acquisition of Carefx strengthened our position as a leading provider of packaged HIE solutions," said Tony Galluscio, vice president, Harris Healthcare Solutions. "As the HIE market continues to mature, with more private and state-wide organizations realizing the immense benefit to patients, clinicians, and administrators, Harris will continue to lead the industry through a focus on delivering the right information right at the point of care."

A nationally recognized leader in healthcare IT integration, Harris offers a full range of interoperability solutions, including IT infrastructure and management, clinical workflow and analytics, HIE, and imaging. Harris solutions improve healthcare quality, safety, efficiency, cost and outcomes by ensuring that the right information travels, with security and privacy, to the right person, at the right time, on the right device, at the point of care.
