dbMotion selected for Unified and Interoperable Patient Record

dbMotion, a provider of health interoperability and intelligence solutions, has been chosen by UMass Memorial Health Care in Worcester, Massachusetts, USA, to deliver its interoperability and intelligence system to create a single electronic, interoperable patient record across numerous information technology environments and care areas.  UMass Memorial Health Care is the largest integrated healthcare system in Central and Western Massachusetts with over 10,000 employees including 1,500 physicians and 2,500 nurses and is the clinical partner of the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Its broad network includes UMass Memorial Medical Center, with three campuses, and its four community hospitals: Clinton Hospital, HealthAlliance Hospital, Marlborough Hospital and Wing Memorial Hospital.  The network also includes community physician-based practices, home health, hospice, rehabilitation and behavioral health services. UMass Memorial provides a full complement of sophisticated technology and support services, providing the region with specialists renowned for their expertise in clinical areas including cardiology, orthopedics, cancer, emergency medicine, surgery, women’s health and children’s medical services. The dbMotion Solution is a proven service oriented architecture (SOA) platform that enables healthcare organisations and exchanges to meaningfully integrate patient-centered information. This solution can extend the life of working clinical solutions that do not fit into a homogenous IT architecture and can provide a platform for rapid development to solve new clinical problems.  dbMotion transforms care through the creation of a virtual patient record that logically connects patient information in existing systems throughout a community. “UMass Memorial’s vision of excellence in health care provision supported through innovative technology made dbMotion a natural choice as a strategic partner. Their vision for integrated care and interoperable, unified medical records is tightly aligned with ours,” said George Brenckle, senior vice president and chief information officer, UMass Memorial Health Care. “dbMotion’s advanced, healthcare focused platform, will allow us to deliver critical medical information to the point of care regardless of where the care is delivered.” At the core of the UMass Memorial project, dbMotion will integrate various systems including: MEDITECH EMR, Allscripts’ ambulatory EMR, Initiate Systems’ EMPI, the IDX Registration System and community pharmacy information from SureScripts-RxHub. The first phase of the project will be deployed with medical domains including patient medications, allergies, laboratory, radiology and extensive clinical documentation. “We are honored to enter into this partnership with UMass Memorial,” said Mr Peter McClennen, President of North America for dbMotion. “We welcome the opportunity to deliver our technology and join with UMass Memorial to advance the state of integrated care in Massachusetts. We believe that by providing access to integrated patient information through the solution’s ability to connect care settings we can help to bridge gaps that often exist between acute and community care while providing a compelling return on investment.”
