C-Suite's Growing Responsibility for Ensuring Optimal Clinical Information Workflow Drives Carefx's Agenda at HIMSS Conference, April 4-8, 2009, in Chicago
CHICAGO, April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Carefx Corporation, whose Fusionfx solution suite aggregates patient information across existing systems and offers clinicians single, clinically relevant views of patient information, is a commanding presence at this year's Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference in Chicago.
Carefx closed out 2008 with greater than 200 percent growth and will continue that growth in 2009 through new contracts, including recent engagements with Advocate Health Care in Oak Brook, IL, and Albert Einstein Healthcare Network in Philadelphia, PA. Carefx will be demonstrating their service-oriented architecture (SOA) based composite applications at HIMSS 2009. Additionally, as part of its ongoing commitment to understanding the vision of today's innovative hospital CIOs and CMIOs, Carefx will release "The Changing Role of the Healthcare CIO: Expanded Responsibilities in an Era of Economic Constraints," the latest in its white paper series, and host an exclusive executive roundtable focused on the emerging roles of healthcare CIOs and CMIOs.
"Carefx is committed to supporting CIOs and CMIOs in improving healthcare performance by connecting their organizations' clinicians with the information they need--when, where and how they need it," says Andrew Hurd, Chairman and CEO of Carefx. "Given the stimulus plan's objective of promoting the exchange of electronic health information and incenting the wider use of certified EHRs, there's no better venue than HIMSS 2009 to facilitate idea-sharing among CIOs, CMIOs and other industry leaders. This type of interaction helps us to develop innovative applications and capabilities of the Fusionfx suite. This solution gives organizations an open, scalable and service-oriented workflow platform on which to grow and derive more value from existing systems and generate improved healthcare performance and better patient outcomes."
Fusionfx specifically addresses the problem hospitals have with isolated information silos, where data is locked within applications that don't interact with each other. As a result, clinicians struggle with logging into and navigating multiple systems, and with data presentations that do little to facilitate clinical decision-making at the point of care.
Developed using SOA, Fusionfx delivers contextual patient information to clinicians based on their role, location and/or workflow. Fusionfx connects disparate systems and enables interoperability, offering clinicians a common method for accessing multiple data sources. Through on-demand composite views of data from multiple sources, including CDR's and healthcare information repositories, organizations can dramatically improve efficiency and outcomes by providing users or user groups personalized composite dashboards, including the following:
"Fusionfx allows healthcare organizations -- hospitals, IDNs, RHIOs and HIEs -- to access, manage and use data in ways they never before thought possible," says Hurd. "It not only transforms isolated applications into connected information delivery systems, but also converts disparate data into actionable information that clinicians can easily access wherever and whenever they need it."
Carefx will demonstrate the composite applications of its Fusionfx suite at HIMSS (booth #3637) in Chicago, IL, April 4-8, 2009.
