Conshohocken, PA (PRWEB) December 04, 2013
Lanai Community Health Center, located on Lanai, the smallest of the major Hawaiian Islands, will use Estenda’s Comprehensive Disease Management Program (CDMP) as the registry for screening and treating Lanai’s at-risk-for Hepatitis B and C population. The island of Lanai, recently purchased by Oracle’s CEO, Larry Ellison, has about 3,100 residents living on its 140-square-mile expanse.
“We can improve both Hepatitis B and C with treatment, but most [people living on Lanai] don’t know they have it,” said Dr. Joe Humphry, Medical Director and Director of Quality for Lanai Community Health Center. “There is a disconnect between organizations focused on population screening for Hepatitis B and linking patients that are found to have active disease or require immunization, and providers who can coordinate care,” said Humphry. “CDMP supports the screening effort and established a registry for follow up accessible by the provider and specialist.”
Estenda’s CDMP software was designed as a customizable, web-based, clinical application for managing patients with chronic diseases. CDMP allows the entire care team to access a unique combination of clinical and patient behavioral data, resulting in dramatically improved patient outcomes and significantly reduced healthcare costs. Estenda Solutions, Inc. is an Oracle Gold Partner and its CDMP software is certified Oracle Exadata Ready.
Lanai Community Health Center will partner with Straub Clinic and Queens Liver Center, among other health care providers, to provide the appropriate treatment for the patients found to have Hepatitis B, C, and/or the resulting liver disease and cancer.
