Orlando health tech firm launches platform with largest U.S. information exchange

An Orlando health tech company has partnered with the largest health information exchange in the U.S. to debut a product it hopes to share with other exchanges in the future.

The Garage’s “Municipal” platform will be rolled out with Healthix, which serves New York City and Long Island.

The Garage already works with more than 120 healthcare companies across nearly 30 states.

“Municipal” organizes, manages and analyzes Healthix’s patient data, which sits at more than 20 million patients.

“We believe in the community-based healthcare model that will change healthcare for good,” said Pranam Ben, CEO of The Garage, in a news release.

Healthix has more than 2,000 members in New York.

The Garage hopes to eventually roll out white-label products based on “Municipal” in the future with other health information exchanges.

“As the largest public HIE in the country, we have amassed a significant repository of data,” said Tom Moore, Healthix’s senior vice president of innovation in the release. “By working with The Garage, we’ve realized that there is so much more we can do with our data for community care management, and with Municipal, we are offering a much-needed tool for making the clinical information in Healthix more useful and actionable.”
