Health Gorilla and Grupo Ángeles Team up to Aggregate Patient Health Data Across Mexico
New interoperability initiative enables patients and providers to review, store, and share health data across 24 hospitals
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Gorilla, a leader in clinical interoperability solutions, and Grupo Ángeles Servicios de Salud, a 24-hospital system in Mexico, today announced a strategic collaboration to enable clinical interoperability across its network of hospitals and clinics.
As part of this initiative, Grupo Ángeles Servicios de Salud will bring together data from multiple disparate IT systems across the organization, including electronic medical record systems, labs, imaging systems, and pharmacies. Providers can view aggregated data at the point of care, while seamlessly and securely sharing medical data with other providers involved in the patient's care plan. In addition, patients will have access to a mobile app that provides full access to their medical information from anywhere they received care in the Grupo Ángeles system.
"Clinical networks like this offer a competitive advantage to health systems by empowering patients and providers with the full scope of medical information, reducing gaps in care and improving patient engagement," says Steve Yaskin, co-founder and CEO of Health Gorilla. "We are excited to bring Health Gorilla's platform and point-of-care technology to Grupo Ángeles to improve outcomes for millions of patients across Mexico."
"Clinical data interoperability is absolutely essential to building a world class hospital system and offering patient-centered care," said Florentino Bernardo Pérez, chief information officer at Grupo Ángeles Servicios de Salud. "By establishing our own clinical network, we will become the largest aggregator of personal health data in Mexico."
This announcement follows Health Gorilla's expansion into Latin America through a partnership with the Puerto Rico Primary Care Association Network, which enables seamless data exchange across 20 federally qualified health centers in Puerto Rico.
