Connect with Us @ HIMSS16

InterSystems healthcare software gives dispersed care teams worldwide complete health information for every patient, and the ability to see that information within existing workflows. The result is better care and healthier care organizations. At our HIMSS16 booth and events we demonstrated the latest implementations of this software, which now touches the lives and health of two out of three U.S. citizens. Presentations focused on:

  • Population health
  • Care coordination
  • Connectivity & FHIR

Please see below for links to watch our presentations from HIMSS16.

Featured Presentation: The Internet of Healthy Things

Dr. Joseph Kvedar, Vice President Connected Health, Partners HealthCare

Internet of Healthy Things coverimageBy 2020, experts predict that more than 20 billion everyday objects will be able to capture, receive, and share data via a vast, interconnected global network linked together by inexpensive sensors, GPS, and “the cloud.” Just around the corner, real-time biometric data will be automatically captured and used to learn more about the impact of lifestyle on chronic diseases and wellness, and ultimately change behavior to improve our health. Using real-world examples, observations, and recommendations from his new book, “The Internet of Healthy Things,” Dr. Kvedar describes the phenomena driving this trend and the business opportunities that arise from it.

Fill in the Blanks: Using an Inference Engine Powered by HIE Data to Fill in Missing Diagnoses

John Wilkinson, Executive Vice President, Clinical Architecture
Ed Chung, MD, Physician Advisor, InterSystems
One of the poorly kept secrets of clinical informatics is that clinical data is messy. Despite all of our efforts to adhere to standards and increase data accessibility, even the best health information exchange (HIE) or clinical data warehouse contains medical records with gaping holes — such as missing diagnoses, uncollected documents, and lost prescriptions. Learn how a clinical inference engine laid on top of HIE data can help fill in missing diagnoses to improve patient registries and population health efforts.

From Radiology Imaging to an Optimized Radiotherapy Workflow

Lucas Persoon, Research Software Engineer, MAASTRO Clinic
Medical imaging (radiology) plays an essential role in modern medicine. Combining multiple sources of data is key to improving treatment quality and personalizing patient treatment. Radiology and cancer treatment with radiotherapy have a broad overlap, as radiotherapy greatly relies on medical imaging to adapt and personalize patient treatment. In daily clinical practice, image guidance is often used to adapt personalize treatment. However, this has put high demands on the data quality and identification to safely adapt. ICT’s solution uses novel medical data exchange standards (e.g., DICOM, IHE-RO) to integrate and manage the radiotherapy workflow. This results in a framework that manages all data throughout the clinic and enables personalized treatments.

Remote Patient Monitoring: InterSystems and Intel

Ed Buffone, Director, IoT Industry Solutions – Healthcare, Intel
The InterSystems and Intel remote patient monitoring (RPM) platform integrates hardware, software, and connectivity in an edge gateway that collects data from pre-paired medical devices, such as blood pressure cuffs, weight scales, and pulse oximeters, and transmits the data securely via 3G or Wi-Fi to the cloud. RPM, a component of distributed care, collects data from the home, workplace, or community. The RPM development platform transmits device data to InterSystems HealthShare, which integrates the data with the patient health record. The end-to-end system improves care delivery by enabling the flow of clinical diagnostic data into the healthcare IT environment and by providing visualization tools that inform the caregiver.
