Mississippi Medicaid, MedeAnalytics use Epic EHR to support real-time clinical data exchange

The Mississippi Department of Medicaid is now able to exchange clinical data in real-time with the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson using the Epic EHR.

Data analytics company MedeAnalytics powers the connection between the state agency and the medical center. The University of Mississippi Medical Center is the state's largest provider of care for Medicaid patients.

"After years of working with our technology partners to build a foundation consisting of an Enterprise Master Patient Index and clinical data repository, we can now instantly share patient summaries with external stakeholders, such as UMMC. This real-time access to beneficiary data will improve insight into beneficiary health trends, empower better care decisions and much more," said Rita Rutland, Mississippi Department of Medicaid deputy administrator of information technology management.
