OREM, Utah (PRWEB) March 26, 2020
IMAT Solutions, a leader in delivering innovative, real-time, healthcare data management and population health reporting solutions, today announced that it is enabling real-time health data reporting and analytics for its customers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The company is facilitating these capabilities through its platform’s Event-Based Reporting, Population Risk Surveillance, and Alerts/Notifications capabilities for Providers, Payers, as well as public health and other healthcare organizations.
In addition, IMAT Solutions is helping customers to identify patients who may be at risk of COVID-19, through the creation of profiles based on centralized clinical codes and other clinical data.
“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to grow in severity, real-time patient information from all points of care and across the continuum of care is critical,” said Kurt Garbe, CEO of IMAT Solutions. “The entire care community across the globe is dealing with this unprecedented situation, and IMAT Solutions is proud to be helping our customers effectively manage their responses through the use of health data reporting and analytics.”
With support from IMAT Solutions, the company’s customers are leveraging these capabilities that are specific to COVID-19:
- Event-Based Reporting: This covers reporting related to specific events or encounters such as, who was tested, test results, diagnoses, who treated the patients, where the patients treated etc. This information not only includes Patient, Provider and clinical information, but is also linked to geographical data.
- Population Risk Surveillance: IMAT’s clients are providing reports and information based on a combination of symptoms, diagnoses, procedures, tests administered, test results and medical equipment. They are also able to search through notes, comments fields and any other unstructured text-based data to identify important information not captured in structured or coded fields and include this data in reports.
- Alerts and Notifications: IMAT understands that Providers and caregivers are overwhelmed with notifications and alerts under “normal” conditions, and most of the information related to COVID-19 is delivered through real-time reporting and data extracts. There are still cases where real-time alerts are of use, such as with long-term care and assisted living facilities, homeless shelters and walk-in clinics, which will benefit from alerts and notifications for patients at risk.
“One of the challenges of this pandemic is identification of evolving clinical codes such as laboratory tests, diagnoses, medical equipment, as well as the combination of codes used to identify patients at risk,” added Garbe. “Unlike traditional data management solutions that only offer standardized reporting capabilities, IMAT Solutions will be taking a specialized approach to maintaining a centralized collection of all required clinical codes, based on feedback from clients, Providers and other healthcare organizations.”
IMAT Solutions will also be providing weekly updates that will be delivered through IMAT Sets. This allows for the creation of profiles based on clinical codes and any other clinical data required to identify patients who may be at risk. Leveraging Sets within IMAT, clients are able to update all queries, reports, scorecards and dashboards with the latest clinical codes immediately.
The company’s customer base consists of HIEs, State Health Organizations and Payers -- connected to thousands of practices, clinics, laboratories and hospitals -- covering more than 35 million lives across the USA. They process millions of records per day with speeds of up to 700 records per second. All data received is immediately normalized, validated and available for reporting and analytics.
