MatrixCare has integrated Carequality into its platform, empowering customers to share health information with thousands of acute and ambulatory provider entities.

The Carequality integration follows other broad HIE integrations and the implementation of secure text messaging, and the Direct technical standard for document exchange. Carequality’s  interoperability framework was established by The Sequoia Project in 2015 to support standards-based health information exchange between and among multi-platform networks, healthcare providers, and electronic health record and health information exchange vendors.

More than half of all healthcare providers are connected through Carequality and exchanged more than 13 million records last month.

“LTPAC is a key component of patient care that historically has been underrepresented in health IT interoperability, so it’s very exciting to see the first MatrixCare users go live with Carequality exchange capabilities,” said Dave Cassel, The Sequoia Project’s vice president for Carequality. “As MatrixCare’s Carequality connectivity is rolled out to their full client base, it will represent a major step forward for comprehensive care of America’s seniors.”
