Electronic Health Record Implementation: Making a Single View of Patient Data a Reality
October 17, 2008
by Healthcare Team
Lately there has been increasing national attention around electronic health records. Most recently, this issue was highlighted in last week’s Presidential debate as one of the solutions our country should consider in our efforts to modernize and streamline the nation’s healthcare system. This issue was further examined by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) in a recently published whitepaper, “Electronic Health Records: A Global Perspective”. The detailed HIMSS report identifies standardization and interoperability as one of the four primary factors affecting the implementation of electronic health records around the world.
We are working with partners and customers to overcome standardization and interoperability challenges. Most recently, Chuck Mosher, Principal Architect for Red Hat’s MetaMatrix Enterprise Data Services Platform, and Dave Nesvisky, VP Healthcare, Red Hat, conducted a SOA in Healthcare webinar to discuss how our MetaMatrix technology helps to solve today’s healthcare interoperability challenges . MetaMatrix has been used to secure and integrate healthcare applications with Epic, InterSystems Caché, and other data sources. By providing a single real-time, read/write standard interface to multiple data sources, MetaMatrix can turn different data silos into a single information repository, making a single view of patient data a reality.
