The addition of ZyDoc to the broad range of health care providers using the Verizon Medical Data Exchange delivers on our promise to expand its scope
Hauppauge, NY (PRWEB) October 15, 2010
ZyDoc, a creator of digital patient records using its NLP structured data extraction and award-winning knowledge management solutions, has joined the Verizon Medical Data Exchange. ZyDoc will use the exchange to enable its health care customers to share health data with other members of the exchange.
Launched earlier this year, the Verizon Medical Data Exchange is a pivotal step toward the sharing of electronic medical records in the U.S. Verizon is continuing to help the health care industry accelerate the use of electronic medical records by expanding the platform to enable the secure sharing of more types of patient health data, including X-rays and lab reports. The Verizon Medical Data Exchange previously only was used to facilitate transcriptionist-to-physician and physician-to-physician sharing of dictated notes - itself a significant step forward in EMR adoption.
"The addition of ZyDoc to the broad range of health care providers using the Verizon Medical Data Exchange delivers on our promise to expand its scope," said Peter Tippett, vice president - technology and innovation, Verizon Business. "Health care providers are embracing the exchange as a cost-effective solution to share patient data using a simplified, interoperable and secure platform. With providers such as ZyDoc now part of the exchange, it is more representative of the varied players who are key to creating digital health records."
"Based on our position as a leader in medical knowledge management solutions, we are strongly in alignment with the goals of the Verizon Medical Data Exchange," states James Maisel, MD, ZyDoc Chairman. "Our goal is the same as Verizon's, which is to help facilitate the use of health IT to strengthen the U.S. health care system, especially at a time when the industry is undergoing rapid change."
"Data interchange has become a healthcare IT priority, and reliable and secure medical knowledge management solutions are more critical than ever before," Maisel added.
ZyDoc is offering its customers the new ZyDoc Medical Knowledge Management Suite that will help them to use the Medical Data Center Exchange with no change in work habits and extract structured, standardized data to populate EMRs efficiently. This data, rather than free text, is key to leveraging the value of captured health care documents within an EMR, and for successful health information exchange between providers.
Featuring three interconnected modules for an end-to-end solution - ZyDoc Transcription, MediSapien Computer-Assisted Coding, and ZyDoc Clinical Data - the suite offers highly efficient integrated and standalone solutions for hospital environments, practice management, academic research, transcription and billing companies, and strategic business analysis.
