Orion Health signs up as reseller for Caradigm

Orion Health has signed a letter of intent to become a reseller and services provider for Caradigm, the joint venture between GE Healthcare and Microsoft formed last year.

Orion Health will be able to resell Caradigm's Amalga enterprise health intelligence platform, which aggregates electronic data from multiple sources into one repository, as well as Caradigm's identity and access management (IAM) products for healthcare, which include expreSSO, an enterprise single sign-on solution, and Vergence, an integrated single sign-on and context management solution.

In a statement, Orion Health CEO Ian McCrae said access to the Caradigm IAM products will complement Orion's existing range of clinical workflow and data integration applications, including the Orion Health Hospital Information System (HIS) – which was previously known as Microsoft Amalga HIS and was acquired by Orion Health in October last year – as well as radiology imaging and picture archiving and communications (RIS/PACS) products.


Orion Health HIS is a fully integrated hospital information system, including patient management, full electronic medical record, CPOE, end to end medication management, laboratory information system, pharmacy, RIS/PACS and back office functions.

Subject to finalisation of a definitive agreement, Orion Health will resell software licenses and deliver implementation and support services to hospitals and health systems in the Australian and Thai markets.

Mr McCrae said the agreement would allow Orion Health to offer a comprehensive eHealth solution when allied to its existing EHR solutions.

Caradigm CEO Michael Simpson Orion Health would bring a strong track record in delivering connected healthcare solutions to providers in the Australian market. “We’re excited to apply their proven experience to enterprise deployments of our Amalga and Vergence products,” he said.
