Western Connecticut Health Network, Inc. Key Developments

Sonic Healthcare Enters into Partnerships with Western Connecticut Health Network, Inc

Sonic Healthcare and Western Connecticut Health Network (WCHN) announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement to form a joint venture to enhance laboratory services for individuals and healthcare providers throughout Connecticut. The joint venture will operate under the name of Constitution Diagnostics Network (CDN). This new entity combines the existing, high-quality, clinical and anatomic pathology laboratory testing capabilities of WCHN's three community-based hospitals (Danbury Hospital, Norwalk Hospital and New Milford Hospital) with esoteric testing capabilities offered by Sonic Healthcare USA through its Sunrise Medical Laboratories division based in Hicksville, New York and other affiliates. The joint venture will combine the rapid turnaround times delivered by local Connecticut-based WCHN laboratories with the advanced physician practice connectivity, specialized testing services and nationally-renowned client support Sonic Healthcare USA is known for. The combined healthcare services will result in more choices for local physicians and healthcare providers. As an added benefit, approximately 80% of the testing completed by CDN will be performed at WCHN, maintaining critical jobs and skills along with the provision of healthcare services within the State, plus associated job growth related to laboratory support services.

NextGate Announces Continued Success with Western Connecticut Health Network

NextGate announced successful partnership growth with Western Connecticut Health Network as the network forms a Shared Savings Program. NextGate and WCHN are working together to further improve patient identification efforts by more accurately identifying and linking patient and provider data. WCHN identified a need for a comprehensive solution that could provide full management of patient identity data to support all functional and transactional systems in their network, and they selected NextGate's Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI) to meet these needs in 2012. Since that time, they have worked with NextGate to implement distinct and configurable settings so they can control, set thresholds, route and manage exceptions of data within the EMPI. Their network also needed a solution which demonstrated multi-entity and multi-environment capabilities, and NextGate has grown with them by offering flexible, configurable and innovative solutions to help WCHN achieve greater results. NextGate's EMPI solution enables organizations to automate duplicate record clean- up, eliminate duplicate registrations and provide faster, more accurate patient lookup while promoting a consistent overall patient experience.
