Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 15, 2010
Today at the American Medical Informatics Association’s (AMIA) annual meeting in Washington, D.C., Explorys, Inc., introduced Population Explorer 2.0. Population Explorer provides large scale, high definition clinical outcomes analysis for health care providers and life sciences organizations.
Explorys is the leader in healthcare analytics and outcomes measurement with over a billion clinical data points and agreements with four major health care systems.
“Evidence based medicine needs big data to thrive,” stated Stephen McHale, Explorys CEO. “We have developed a truly disruptive and scalable technology that brings an integrated platform to the health care ecosystem that empowers the next generation of care delivery and life sciences innovation.”
Processing data collected daily from both acute and ambulatory care settings, the Explorys healthcare cloud-computing platform is built upon a massively parallel computing model that enables health care and life sciences organizations to search and analyze patient populations, treatment protocols, and clinical outcomes; all within a HIPAA and HITECH compliant environment.
“Population Explorer 2.0 adds support for the life sciences community, as well as expanded analytics, visualization, and collaboration features,” stated Charlie Lougheed, Explorys Chief Technology Officer and President. “These new functions enable health care and life sciences organizations to collaborate in real-time in the areas of protocol effectiveness and safety.”
Explorys recently announced Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth System, Summa Health System, and University Hospitals health system as the first four health care providers to join their network. Explorys is in the process of expanding nationally, and these organizations represent the first group within this effort.
“The safe and secure Explorys platform allows our healthcare providers and researchers the ability to interactively analyze thousands of clinical concepts across billions of data points to detect underlying patterns and associations of disease processes thereby accelerating the time from hypothesis generation to net new knowledge discovery,” said Dr. Anil Jain, Chief Medical Officer, Explorys and a Senior IT Executive at the Cleveland Clinic.
Explorys addresses the national strategic imperative to leverage electronic health records (EHR) for the improvement of medicine. We accelerate discovery and enable collaboration between stakeholders in healthcare by providing a platform that serves providers and life sciences - all within a HIPAA compliant, privacy protected environment.
