CEO of National Center for Health Care Informatics (NCHCI) Presented Pilot Program Success
SAN DIEGO, March 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Crossflo Systems, Inc., a Patriot Scientific company (OTC Bulletin Board: PTSC), announced that a pilot project, created in collaboration with HP and the National Center for Health Care Informatics (NCHCI), achieved its success metrics and was the model for a presentation today by Raymond F. Rogers, chief executive officer of NCHCI. Mr. Rogers' topic at the HP 2009 Health and Life Sciences Symposium was "Enabling the Rapid Development and Deployment of Health Information Exchange".
The presentation centered on the fact that healthcare quality, safety, and efficiency are compromised because information resides in thousands of disparate data silos. Interoperable health data exchange has become a formidable national challenge for the healthcare industry. The presentation overviewed a pilot project that successfully demonstrated the ability to rapidly develop and deploy health information for the purpose of detecting naturally occurring or bioterrorists' pathogens in their pre-epidemic phases (syndromic surveillance).
Entitled The Montana Health Information Exchange Pilot Project, this effort linked four disparate Montana hospitals' Emergency Departments (ED) with the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services (MT DPHHS) to share syndromic surveillance data. The system, as envisioned and designed, is fully functional and provides a platform from which to build future capabilities, including the ability to securely move patients' medical records to the point of care.
Crossflo's CDX Server software running on the HP Integrity NonStop server platform facilitates biosurveillance processes and enables the public health systems to quickly detect and respond to potentially catastrophic health problems as well as more routine public health concerns. Crossflo first formed a relationship with HP to configure the CDX Server software on an HP Integrity NonStop server platform over a year ago, when Crossflo joined the HP Developer and Solution Provider Program.
The Symposium is HP's annual premier thought leadership forum dedicated entirely to life sciences and the healthcare community. It provides opportunities to learn and network with health & life sciences industry experts, researchers, physicians and administrators from around the globe. This year's symposium is being held March 2-5, 2009 in Litchfield Park, Arizona.
