Henry Ford Expands Use of Apollo EPMM® to Provide Clinical Multimedia Management Solutions Enterprise-wide
Date:1/27/2013

Falls Church, VA (PRWEB) January 27, 2013

Apollo, the leading provider of collaborative clinical multimedia management solutions for the healthcare industry, today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Henry Ford Health System (HFHS) to install Apollo EPMM® across their enterprise. As a luminary client of Apollo, HFHS benefits from the effectiveness of Apollo’s clinical multi-media management solution in their Pathology department and has decided to bring Apollo EPMM’s value to the entire enterprise.

Apollo EPMM (Enterprise Patient Media Manager) gives healthcare professionals the ability to securely collaborate while using their own best practices more efficiently and effectively. Apollo EPMM brings together all clinical media related to an individual patient from throughout the medical enterprise and makes it immediately and easily available to authorized personnel. The result is a more integrated clinical team, a dramatic increase in workflow efficiency and effectiveness, and improved patient outcomes at a lower cost. Using open system architecture, Apollo EPMM enables this clinical media to be integrated into the existing EMR, delivering a more complete “picture” of the patient to care providers. This approach precludes the need to implement a PACS for each specialty.

“Enabling our clinicians to consult across specialties to improve patient care is imperative,” said J. Mark Tuthill, M.D., Division Head of Pathology Informatics at HFHS. “Apollo EPMM enables HFHS to manage clinical images and related data across specialties without impacting the way the clinicians work. The result is a better integrated clinical team while reducing risk to improve patient outcomes at a lower cost.”

“By putting this information at the fingertips of the medical team in a simple and secure interface, we expand the vision of the team, enabling improved decision support and quality care,” explained Mark Newburger, Apollo’s President and CEO. “With Apollo EPMM, we provide the software environment that facilitates collaboration across the HFHS enterprise allowing each clinical department to work the way they do but share and access the same imaging data of the patient. This framework increases workflow efficiencies while facilitating collaboration across the enterprise for better patient care and diagnosis.”

In 2009, Henry Ford Health System installed Apollo’s PathPACS®, a clinical imaging solution for Pathology, in the HFHS pathology and laboratory services division. PathPACS provides a seamless environment in which digital pathology fully supports the HFHS mission of providing quality patient care, strengthening the institution’s continued commitment to medical research, and innovative educational initiatives. Enterprise implementation is the next step in this mission.
