Golden Living Kick-Starts Post-Acute Health IT with Microsoft HealthVault and Amalga UIS Connection
Date:12/2/2009

WASHINGTON and REDMOND, Wash., Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Golden Living and Microsoft Corp. announced the companies will collaborate to give caregivers single-point access to the diverse healthcare information necessary for providing ongoing care after patients leave the hospital and to give patients and their families better tools for managing patients' health.

Golden Living is the first post-acute care organization to adopt Microsoft Amalga Unified Intelligence System (UIS). This relationship will allow Golden Living to benefit from the same technology used in some of the country's most advanced hospitals.

While there is an abundance of data in healthcare, there is little ability to compare, contrast and learn from the data, which is saved in separate systems and segregated by incompatible formats. Amalga UIS will help Golden Living combine distinct information from a variety of diverse internal and provider sources, including hospitals, public and private payers, independent physicians, and an array of post-acute services.

The targeted result is more effective management of chronic disease, improved clinical outcomes, and the substitution of early intervention and prevention for costly hospitalization.

"The potential is there for significant improvements in healthcare quality and cost efficiency -- exactly the kind of results that are being sought in the healthcare reform," said Golden Living president and CEO Neil Kurtz, M.D.

While the use of electronic health records (EHRs) is becoming more common in U.S. hospitals, availability is extremely limited outside the acute care setting. Americans who seek ongoing care after hospitalization use a variety of healthcare providers to promote recovery or treat chronic conditions.
