The Fall Collaborative Communications Summit: Transforming Health Care through Health Information Technology announces that MDdatacor's chief medical advisor will present a case study at the fall summit this October 27-28, 2008 at the Sofitel Los Angeles. http://www.ccsexpo.com/fallccs.html
The session, entitled "Going Beyond the Claim: Automating Clinical Data Collection and Utilizing Natural Language Processing for Improved Patient Outcomes" will take place Tuesday, October 28th at 11:30 a.m. and be presented by N. Stephen Ober, M.D., M.B.A., chief medical officer for MDdatacor.
The case study presentation will cover how a health plan successfully used a system with Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology to automatically review clinical data residing in dictated notes, electronic medical records, lab, registry and practice management systems to identify lab values, examinations and other metrics in a quality improvement program
"Clinical data is critical to the success of any quality improvement program. MDdatacor has developed a new approach to provide physicians with the real-time clinical data they need to improve patient outcomes and assure the success of these programs," said Dr. Ober.
MDdatacor's patented and interoperable CareInformatixTM technology automates the collection of clinical data from physician practices' existing electronic medical record, practice management, lab and registry systems, as well as transcribed notes, which means that even physicians without electronic systems can participate in quality improvement programs. MDdatacor is currently the only company able to aggregate clinical data directly from physicians' own patient records, resulting in access to the most comprehensive patient data.
"MDdatacor provides doctors with actionable clinical information at the point-of-care, which leads to improvements in patients' health. By providing the most accurate, timely and comprehensive patient information, MDdatacor puts disease management in the hands of physicians," said Tim Roche, co-founder, president and chief executive officer of MDdatacor.
