In order to improve healthcare delivery by covering all facets of the patient care spectrum
Covisint, a subsidiary of Compuware Corporation, and Carefx have partnered to market an integrated workflow solution that ties together the full spectrum of care, from physician offices to labs and pharmacies, to multiple information systems within hospitals.
The partnership brings together Covisint’s cloud-based collaboration platform which connects physicians to patient information and healthcare applications in a secure web-based environment, with Carefx’s Fusionfx, an interoperable workflow solution for hospitals and health systems that streamlines the way clinicians interact with patient data, reducing errors and increasing productivity.
Covisint’s secure platform and cloud-computing approach features a community-based portal framework, identity management, single sign-on, master patient index, record-locator service and secure messaging between physician offices and other healthcare entities.
Carefx claims that Fusionfx enhances clinical workflows by offering clinicians real-time, unified views of relevant in-patient and imaging data across multiple applications.
The Covisint-Carefx partnership addresses the data sharing requirement for achieving meaningful use by tying together multiple information systems through customised portals, that synchronise patient information across every point of care.
The companies said that by using technologies that close the information gaps between providers, venues and information systems, clinicians can provide patients with a more consistent, higher quality care experience.
Brett Furst, vice president of healthcare at Covisint, said: The combined Covisint and Carefx solution will significantly improve healthcare delivery by covering all facets of the patient care spectrum. Together, this relationship leverages innovation in a way that improves complete access to patient information to ensure quality of care, while driving down costs.
Andrew Hurd, chairman and CEO of Carefx, said: Leveraging the technology innovation of our two companies provides the ability to present information that draws on a patient’s encounters with multiple practitioners.”
