San Francisco Business Times

Sutter Health, the Sacramento-based nonprofit system that runs many of the Bay Area’s biggest hospitals, plans to spend “tens of millions of dollars” to create a health care data platform to share information between Sutter clinicians and unaffiliated health care providers in Northern California.

Sutter will work with Australia’s Orion Health to build and deploy the so-called “HIE” or health information exchange by May 2015, officials say.
