This complements our existing FREE EHR, HIE, PHR, MOBILE and soon to be launched FREE PM solutions. As a Physician owned organization our ethos is to supply FREE end-to-end solutions to Physician’s practices” He continued “our business model is advertising supported and is designed so that no information leaves the Mitochon environment. We at Mitochon do not subscribe to the belief that we own Physician’s data or have the right to aggregate it into “Big Data” solutions. This is a natural result of our system being designed by Physicians for Physicians”

Hospitals continue to look for cost-effective strategies to align more closely with physicians as healthcare moves towards the ACO and medical home delivery models. For the most part, hospitals have adopted the employed-physician model by purchasing practices.
We believe investing in healthcare technologies such as Mitochon’s free integrated EHR/HIE/PHR platform can create clinically integrated networks of independent practices and enable the ACO and medical home delivery models.
This cloud-based platform has already been successfully integrated into various HIEs including Medicity at Hoag Hospital, providing bi-directional flows of clinical information for care coordination and referrals.
