PENSACOLA, Fla., Feb. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Pensacola, FL-based Cogon Systems, Inc. is excited to announce the continuing growth and maturation of its Internet-based health information exchange platform, the Community MOMENT OF CARE(R).
The South Florida Health Information Initiative has implemented the Community MOMENT OF CARE(R) within Miami, Florida. In the coming year, Cogon Systems, Inc. has been funded by the Department of Defense to facilitate the first wide-scale sharing of clinical information between multiple civilian providers and federal providers within the Pensacola region.
Healthcare providers are often in need of clinical information from other providers in order to provide better, coordinated patient care. Cogon Systems' Community MOMENT OF CARE(R) allows providers to securely access these disparate records that may reside within their own institution, within their referral network, or even information from a facility outside their typical sphere of influence -- such as a nearby clinic, a Department of Defense Hospital, a Veterans Administration facility, or another specialist across town. Until now, the problem with this need for data is that most of the information was inaccessible within interoperable systems. Cogon Systems, Inc. liberates this information, providing multiple ways for caregivers to have this information readily available to them via secure Internet technologies and protocols.
The Community MOMENT OF CARE(R) is an Internet-based software tool that employs service oriented architecture and adheres to emerging standards advocated by the Health Information Technology Standards Panel. By utilizing the Internet, the Community MOMENT OF CARE(R) can scale to meet the healthcare information sharing needs of hospitals, physician practices and entire communities as it seeks to coordinate continuum of care.
Cogon Systems, Inc. via its Community MOMENT OF CARE(R) will help clients leverage the power of the Internet in order to improve patient safety, reduce costs, especially that associated with indigent care, and create stronger communication links between providers within a virtual health community.
You can visit Cogon Systems at the HIMSS 2008 Exhibition and Conference (Booth # 1835) in Orlando, FL February 24th - 28th. Go to http://www.himssconference.org to learn more.
