Ready Computing and Clinical Architecture Collaborate to Deliver a New and Unparalleled Data Solution to Clinicians Utilizing InterSystems’ HealthShare

Ready Computing develops proprietary adaptors to enhance and augment InterSystems’ HealthShare by integrating Clinical Architecture’s Symedical® healthcare content management software and Advanced Clinical Awareness Suite.

Cambridge, Massachusetts, Carmel, Indiana and New York, New York, (May 15, 2018)—The healthcare industry is ever-evolving and complex. Every day new and exciting innovations take place that benefit the industry and unlock new opportunities to deliver a level of care to the population that exceeds the standard. This is why Ready Computing is proud to announce the availability of an off-the-shelf solution that combines the raw power and artificial intellect of both InterSystems’ HealthShare health information exchange (HIE) and Clinical Architecture’s Symedical content management software (CMS). This integrated solution has extended the potential for healthcare professionals to deliver an above-standard level of care that more completely addresses the needs of its patients.

Across the healthcare industry, clinicians must closely examine a vast amount of information in a patient’s record to try and locate the most vital pieces of data. With all of the data currently available it's often difficult to make sense of the data or meaningfully use it. By integrating InterSystems’ HealthShare and Clinical Architecture’s Symedical, Ready Computing has enabled the flow of rich, high-fidelity clinical information to sophisticated applications that will help organizations use that data most effectively. This benefits clinicians by empowering them to consume the most clinically relevant information and enables them to make better decisions at the point of care—all while concurrently avoiding medical errors and improving healthcare quality and outcomes.

Imagine a clinician seeking their patient’s diabetes history including recent test results and relevant medications. This clinician may need to retrieve and review many unrelated doctors’ notes, medication records, and lab tests just to find the specific information that they require. By connecting HealthShare and Symedical, this scenario is no longer as daunting. The information the clinician requires is retrieved from all disparate sources by HealthShare, and then normalized by leveraging Symedical’s ontologies and industry-leading terminology management tools. This data is then displayed using HealthShare’s Clinigraphic, a data visualization dashboard that highlights the most relevant information about a condition from a composite patient record. Using the Clinigraphic, clinicians are able to increase the signal to noise ratio and narrow in on the most meaningful and relevant patient information.

In addition to the benefits of normalization, Clinical Architecture’s Advanced Clinical Awareness Suite has been integrated into HealthShare to provide clinical inferencing capabilities. This is a rules-based, automated reasoning process that leverages structured clinical data to draw assertions and provide recommendations, along with instance evidence and references. This solution aids clinicians in identifying previously undocumented or undiagnosed health conditions. Consider a patient who normally receives care from one facility but has an elevated hemoglobin A1c result from another.  Neither facility has the complete patient picture and, therefore, neither has a documented diagnosis of diabetes. HealthShare aggregates the patient information from both facilities, and inferencing provides the insight that the patient has undocumented diabetes, thereby enabling the clinician to provide a better level of care.

“Patients are rarely seen in just one facility, so why should we only focus on one source of clinical data?” asks Samir Jain, VP of Technology at Ready Computing. “By leveraging the Advanced Clinical Awareness Suite at the composite health record-level, and with data coming from multiple disparate sources, this solution enables clinicians to quickly and effectively determine gaps in documentation and bridge gaps in care by looking at the whole patient record, rather than just a part of it.”

As the Advanced Clinical Awareness Suite is integrated into the HealthShare workflow, healthcare professionals are now empowered to view timely and relevant information and gain new insights from composite patient records without the need to access additional applications. This puts cost reduction, quality improvement, and time savings easily within reach and provides a proven path to improved patient care.
