dbMotion Solution selected by Fraser Health in British Columbia
PITTSBURGH --(Business Wire)--
dbMotion, an innovative provider of connected healthcare solutions, has
been selected to implement its interoperability platform across Fraser
Health, a 12-hospital integrated delivery network (IDN) serving 1.7
million people in the Greater Vancouver area of British Columbia,
Canada. The agreement was signed in late 2012, with the go-live
scheduled for November 2013.
With the dbMotion platform, patient data captured at any Fraser facility
will be aggregated and harmonized to create a comprehensive,
longitudinal patient record. Providers throughout the network will be
able to access and use the information at the point of care and within
their preferred clinical system and workflow. The interoperability
enabled by the dbMotionTM Solution likewise will allow Fraser
to connect with other provincial data sources in the future. This
approach, called Unifying Clinical Information (UCI), will support
greater collaboration and coordination, ultimately leading to better
care for patients and populations served by Fraser Health.
"The ability to ensure a patient's comprehensive health record data is
available, in real time, across the Fraser Health continuum of care will
not only enable us to improve how we treat patients, but will eventually
allow us o enhance care throughout the province as we exchange health
information with other care delivery organizations across British
Columbia," says Philip Barker, Fraser Health's Vice President of
Informatics (News - Alert) & Transformation Support.
"We are delighted to enter into this partnership with Fraser Health and
are looking forward to the go-live later this year," says Peter
McClennen, President of dbMotion North America, adding that Fraser is
the second Canadian healthcare enterprise to deploy its platform. "As
the desire to improve quality of care continues to be a major focus for
the industry, the ability to turn data from disparate technologies into
actionable information will be invaluable."
dbMotion™ provides an innovative connected healthcare solution that
integrates patient information from disparate health information
technologies and delivers it to clinicians at the point of care.
Harmonizing health information across the enterprise and throughout the
community, the dbMotion interoperability solution semantically organizes
volumes of data, enabling providers to easily access and manage
information within familiar workflows. The dbMotion solution bridges
clinical settings to facilitate seamless transitions of care and nurture
referral relationships. Built on an SOA platform, dbMotion combines
health data to present a 360-degree view of the patient's health status
to facilitate better care and disease management, and to prepare
organizations for healthcare reform. This robust solution has been
implemented in the world's most demanding healthcare IT environments
since 2001. For more information about dbMotion, visit www.dbmotion.com.
