Lakewood Urologist First to Join OneHealth New Jersey

OneHealth New Jersey, in partnership with the Medical Society of New Jersey (MSNJ), is pleased to announce Kiritkumar Pandya, MD, MSNJ Board Member and past-president of the Monmouth-Ocean County Medical Society, has joined the newly formed physician-led statewide interoperable health information exchange (HIE).

“I am excited to join OneHealth,” said Dr. Pandya. “Partnering with OneHealth and MSNJ, across our state, drives the common goal of delivering the best possible patient care and benefits the state’s medical community. I will be able to access my patients’ medical information when I need it, wherever I am. Better communication and care coordination between my office and hospitals, labs, pharmacies, and referring physicians across the state benefits my patients.

Dr. Pandya added, “physicians are facing major changes in how they are expected to provide care. Business intelligence and analytics such as those generated by OneHealth New Jersey, deliver the kind of information that helps us identify and treat at-risk populations, proactively engage patients sooner, understand the performance of health interventions on health outcomes, and reduce costs.”

The HIE is unique and reaches beyond the simple transmission of data at the point of care. OneHealth offers a suite of innovative technology tools to help physicians share patient information while employing powerful analytic reports designed to help improve clinical outcomes, reduce inefficiencies, and positively impact patient safety.

Participating physicians, hospitals and other providers share patient health information, including information from all providers and facilities from whom a patient has received care. Physicians can proactively manage their patients’ care in ways that have never been possible before while also establishing efficient methods to meet changing quality reporting requirements.

Kennedy Ganti, MD, FAAFP, and chair of the OneHealth Physician Advisory Committee said, “we value Dr. Pandya as an HIE partner. Dr. Pandya has dedicated his medical career to the people of New Jersey.”
