Alcidion’s focus is on empowering clinicians to deliver the highest quality patient care. By partnering with Ascribe we can leverage the rich functionality of Symphony and the Ascribe solution suite
Adelaide, SA (PRWEB) April 01, 2015
The MOU enables Alcidion’s clinical decision support to be integrated with the broader Ascribe solution suite including the Health Application Platform (HAP) to support the delivery of optimum clinical outcomes.
The partnership will initially focus on the Australian Emergency Medicine market where Alcidion’s Miya ED platform, a dashboard that displays ‘clean’ integrated data from the central data repository, already interfaces with Symphony, Ascribe’s emergency and unscheduled care clinical information system. The partnership will be extended to Ascribe’s UK customer base in the future.
Emergency Departments face a unique challenge – cope with increasing volumes of complex patients while achieving key performance objectives relating to quality of care and discharge timeframes. As the load on clinician’s increases there is an increasing chance that key risks for patients are not identified and acted upon.
Miya ED helps Emergency Department (“ED”) clinicians to identify and act upon clinical risks as they arise – both during an ED admission or post discharge.
Duane Lawrence, Ascribe’s Managing Director, said, “Emergency Departments are under more pressure than ever before, and getting the right data to the right person, is critical to improving care quality. Integration with Alcidion will provide additional contextual information to our Emergency Department users and support clinicians in making safe and timely decision about patient care.”
Moving forward, the medium term focus will be the feasibility of integrating Alcidion’s Miya platform into the Ascribe HAP. Ray Blight, Alcidion CEO commented ‘Alcidion’s focus is on empowering clinicians to deliver the highest quality patient care. By partnering with Ascribe we can leverage the rich functionality of Symphony and the Ascribe solution suite to really make a difference to patient care across the hospital environment whether it’s the ED, Inpatient Services or Outpatient Departments.’
