Yorba Linda, CA (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
SpeedTrack Inc. announced today that they have entered into an agreement with The Hospital Association of San Diego and Imperial Counties (HASD&IC) to license their California Universal Patient Information Discovery (CUPID) application for hospital discharges. In addition, HASD&IC will facilitate subject matter expertise for the development of a new SpeedTrack application for searching, analyzing and reporting information from licensed California primary care clinics, and will promote this capability to all its member hospitals and healthcare providers.
CUPID provides on-line access via an easy-to-use dashboard to a wide range of publicly available healthcare information, including all of California’s public OSHPD information for the most recent 4 years, (Inpatient, Outpatient and ER encounters,) which comprise more than 64 million records. Also included is CMS ALOS data and the AMA descriptions for every ICD-9 and CPT code. CUPID enables users to search, analyze, map and download information quickly and easily with virtually no training. It is quickly becoming the critical strategic planning tool for healthcare providers throughout California.
“The SpeedTrack product allows HASD&IC to rapidly respond to community requests for public information about the hospitals and healthcare systems in San Diego and Imperial Counties. Our ability to inform our association members on trends and outcomes using aggregated data from SpeedTrack is a valued service.” -- Gwenmarie Hilleary, Executive Director HASD&IC
“We are extremely excited to be chosen by the Hospital Association of San Diego and Imperial Counties as their technology provider to enable better decision making for strategic planning and business development, and to help them bring further added value to their member organizations,” said SpeedTrack’s CEO Miles Yano.
