Cambridge, MA and Nashua, NH (PRWEB) March 30, 2009
Wellogic and DiagnosisONE today announced a partnership that will provide the healthcare industry with its first and only Stage 6 (HIMSS EMR Adoption Model) CDSS compliant electronic health record (EHR) system.
"We are very excited to be partnering with Wellogic in this very important area," said Dr. Mansoor Khan, CEO and co-founder of DiagnosisONE. "We have been working on developing this industry leading Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS) for a decade and have developed the world's largest data base of Evidence Based Rules. Wellogic has innovated in delivering all aspects of patient information to the point of care for a similar time, and their human factors experience has enabled us to provide our decision support to users seamlessly without disrupting their normal practice patterns."
Coming at the same time as the launch of President Obama's Recovery Act (Stimulus package), this is great news for current and future users of Wellogic's EHR, personal health record (PHR), and health information exchange (HIE) users. These users can now be assured that they will be able to meet all of the projected CDSS requirements needed to receive incentive payments under the Recovery Act through 2015. "After a thorough analysis of all the CDSS products in the market we came to the conclusion that DiagnosisONE has not only the most robust technology but also by far the largest set of ready-to-use evidence based rules. With this partnership we now have the most comprehensive and cost effective solution on the market" said Sumit Nagpal, President and CEO of Wellogic. "This will allow us to directly address the healthcare issues our federal government has mobilized to solve via information technology, and actively safeguard patient safety, enhance care quality, help manage healthcare cost, and bring greater transparency and collaboration among providers, payers, consumers and other participants in care delivery."
The DiagnosisONE CDSS product, D1.Pathway meets all of the CCHIT certification requirements regarding Clinical Decision Support and provides care providers the ability to select the kinds of alerts and guidelines they would like to receive from a library of over 24,000 evidence based rules. The system has been shown to have a positive impact on patient care in a wide range of conditions from Diabetes and Heart Disease to Cancer and infectious diseases. It improves clinical efficiency, reduces physician workload and enhances revenue.
Wellogic's EHR uses the DiagnosisONE CDSS system to provide validated, patient-specific care recommendations at the point of care which is where they can have maximal impact.
