This is a new paradigm and added value for HealthCare Providers with increased service to their Patients.
Long Valley, NJ (PRWEB) June 12, 2010
On Capitol Hill, politicians are bouncing ideas back and forth on how to cut medical expenses for the average patient. But in New Jersey, a computer company has already transformed the idea into reality.
Allutia is a patent pending software product built on the latest technology that allows medical professionals to share patient health records over a secure online network. It is a translator, designed and built specifically for Health Informatics. Allutia enables disparate health systems to electronically "communicate" information with each other. It is fully secure, HIPAA Compliant and can be accessed via standard secure Web Services. Patients can move from one doctor to another without undergoing tests or treatments they’ve already taken under previous practitioners, unless deemed medically necessary. This saves Health Care Providers time and money.
Allutia 2.0, released in March, integrates the Health Industry Standard "Continuity of Care Record (CCR) into the product including standard Medical Conditions ICD9/10 and Drug & Prescription codes NDC.
Per Carol Polizzi, VP Marketing, “Forging connections between medical professionals means that patients won’t have to needlessly repeat procedures they’ve already undertaken.” “Medical professionals have all their information at the click of a mouse; so there are no misunderstandings, saving time and limiting additional medical expenses for the patient.”
Allutia 2.0 helps cut down on time and costs for medical professionals. Generally new patients come in fifteen to twenty minutes early before an appointment, to fill out paperwork that becomes the basic foundation of their health record at the practice. After the patient hands in the paperwork, office professionals spend valuable time tediously entering that information into their office based Practice Management Software computer system often with errors due to penmanship and mistyping.
“With the DRPHR – Allutia platform, that process is completely eliminated,” Polizzi said. “Patients enter that information online via a PC or smartphone at their convenience which is securely downloaded by their Health Provider.” "This is a new paradigm and added value for HealthCare Providers with increased service to their Patients."

Continuity of Care Record (CCR) - is a health record standard specification developed jointly by ASTM International, the Massachusetts Medical Society (MMS), the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and other health informatics vendors. The CCR standard is a patient health summary standard. It is a way to create flexible documents that contain the most relevant and timely core health information about a patient, and to send these electronically from one care giver to another.
ICD9/10 - International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (most commonly known by the abbreviation ICD) provides codes to classify diseases and a wide variety of signs, symptoms, abnormal findings, complaints, social circumstances, and external causes of injury or disease. Under this system, every health condition can be assigned to a unique category and given a code, up to six characters long. Such categories can include a set of similar diseases.
NDC - National Drug Code (NDC) System is a system that is designed to provide drugs in the United States with a specific 11-digit number that describes the product. Originally created under Medicare to help identify drugs for reimbursement, the usefulness of the system has now become more widespread. http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/cder/ndc/default.cfm
