PHILADELPHIA – January 13, 2022 – HealthShare Exchange (HSX), an industry leader in data sharing to support care management, quality improvement and population health for more than 13 million patients in the Philadelphia, Pa., New Jersey and Delaware healthcare community, today announced that it has added Invitae’s Ciitizen platform as a HSX MarketStreet™ partner. The integration of Ciitizen into HSX MarketStreet supports individual consumers who want to take an active role in their healthcare.
“At HealthShare Exchange, we are committed to empowering data-driven healthcare – whether it is for individual patients or the region’s largest health system,” said Martin Lupinetti, President and Chief Executive Officer at HealthShare Exchange. “We are excited to add Ciitizen as an HSX MarketStreet partner and work with them as they enable individuals to take an active role in their healthcare.”
The Ciitizen platform’s mission is to empower individuals around the world by collecting and providing transparent access and use of all their health data. It allows patients to access and store complete medical records so that they can seek better treatment more efficiently and contribute to many kinds of medical research, always at their option and with their consent. In addition to their medical records, HSX MarketStreet will provide “Ciitizens” with access to real-time encounter notifications, which will help individuals be more engaged with their care across multiple providers and gain a greater understanding of where their health data are shared.
“At Invitae, we enable patients to take control of their healthcare – and having access to their complete medical record is critical to that effort,” said Glenn Keet, VP of HIE Strategy at Invitae. “HSX MarketStreet provides our Ciitizens with secure access to the information needed to make informed healthcare decisions. Moreover, our Cures Gateway enables HIEs to connect with patients to seamlessly supply their medical record data into the patients’ chosen personal health application, a key requirement of the 21st Century Cures Act.”
A subsidiary of HSX, HSX MarketStreet is a multi-sided platform that securely connects health systems, health plans, other healthcare entities and patients with innovative partners that are developing and supporting products, applications and services employing health data and/or healthcare integration.
