Holon Solutions announced that Castro County Healthcare-Plains Memorial Hospital has successfully deployed Holon’s CollaborNet Health Information Exchange (HIE) solution. This HIE implementation will be used to facilitate the sharing of patient health information between the hospital and physicians in the community.
Castro County is a 25-bed critical access hospital located in Dimmitt, TX. The county was originally introduced to Holon’s CollaborNet HIE solution through its membership in the Texas Organization Rural and Community Hospitals (TORCH). Holon and TORCH have partnered in an effort to connect 155 communities of care across the state of Texas.
Castro County is already using Holon’s s e-tobacco HIE application in its hospital and clinic to enable one-click electronic patient referrals by physicians to the state’s Quitline tobacco cessation program.
