In addition to automating processes and workflow, the platform facilitates data sharing and viewing across disparate electronic health record and other IT systems.

“The scalable technology platform offers strategic, tactical and transformative benefits by connecting on-premise clinical and administrative operations to a cloud environment,” said Yaniv Dagan, CEO of IDS. “By enabling this connectivity, it facilitates the collection, management, storage and transmission of structured and unstructured data for coordination and transition of care, improving population health management.”

Designed to eliminate healthcare IT incompatibilities, the platform enhances each site’s native IT infrastructure, translating data as required and offering data viewing and collaboration tools. Exchanging patient information efficiently in real time, the platform enables rapid deployment and ease-of-use through platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and middleware architecture, eliminating VPNs and other point-to-point connections.

“[The platform’s] unique clinical data repository allows users to access and view any type of health information, including office visit notes, discharge summaries, lab results, DICOM images, and other electronic health records,” Dagan said. “It also offers convenient collaboration and sharing tools to providers without compromising data security and integrity. Users continually stress its benefits for the coordination and transition of care required in managing patient populations.”

Transmitted data can include clinical summaries and reports, links to medical images, lab reports, patient visit status updates and complete patient EHR files. Information transparently flows to the AbbaDox cloud platform after acquisition, when it is then transformed as required for the recipient’s system and forwarded. The communication can be saved in IDS’s cloud-based clinical data repository or an onsite archive compatible with the referrer’s EHR or other IT system.
