Baptist Memorial Health Care with headquarters in Memphis, Tenn., has selected RelayHealth (Atlanta) to establish an enterprise health information exchange (HIE) among its 14 hospitals, 250 employed physicians, thousands of affiliated physicians, and hundreds of thousands of patients to improve care coordination in Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas. The RelayHealth HIE solution, will facilitate electronic communications and support the health system’s initiative to enhance patient and physician satisfaction.
