Scientific Technologies Corporation Expands into the Clinical Solution Marketplace
Date:3/22/2013

Tucson, Arizona (PRWEB) March 22, 2013

STC is pleased to announce it has acquired the primary assets of Spokane, Washington-based KL Crane & Associates and MD EMR Systems of Houston, Texas. In addition, Kristina Crane, former CEO of KL Crane & Associates, will be joining STC as the Director of Provider Services, while Mike Duckworth, former CEO of MD EMR Systems, will lead the Provider Solutions product line as its Director. Both of these acquisitions expand STC’s immunization portfolio in the clinical marketplace.

KL Crane & Associates, established in 2006, has provided expert immunization information system (IIS) training, advocacy, and support services to thousands of providers who administer vaccines across the state of Washington on behalf of the Washington State Department of Health. “These are services STC has not traditionally provided to our state health department clients. The more we worked with KL Crane & Associates the more we saw the value they bring the state immunization program and the providers who use STC’s IWeb IIS solution. We realized that this service helps the clinical community to use IWeb to its fullest capabilities and assists the provider to better serve their patients. STC’s core mission has always been about improving public health outcomes,” states Todd Watkins, President of STC.

The MD EMR Systems ImmsLink application has more than 500 licensed users in many provider organizations across the country. ImmsLink allows a clinician to view a patient’s immunization record contained in their GE Centricity EHR and compare it to the same patient’s vaccination history in the state IIS. ImmsLink allows the clinician to view a patient’s immunization record in the GE Centricity EHR and the same patient’s vaccination history in the state IIS through a side by side view of both applications. The clinician can send vaccination data to the IIS as is done with other immunization interfaces. The ImmsLink application also allows the clinician to retrieve some or all of the vaccination data stored in the state IIS that may not be in the clinician’s EHR. Using ImmsLink the clinician can select which vaccinations they would like added to the patient’s EHR and it is automatically updated. The ImmsLink application can be used in real-time to provide the most accurate data for the clinician at the point of patient care.

STC plans to expand the ImmsLink user base while further developing the product’s capabilities to achieve Meaningful Use Certification. According to Janet Balog, Senior Public Health Advisor and Director of STC’s Interoperability Center of Excellence, “The unprecedented Meaningful Use incentives have joined financial and clinical outcome goals. Still, clinicians will demand that solutions are readily available with complete patient information at the point of care. Only vaccination decision making tools like ImmsLink that are designed with a deep understanding of the provider’s workflow and are underpinned by sound public health knowledge of the recommended immunization schedule will significantly improve immunization coverage rates in patients of all ages.”

About STC

STC’s goal is to ensure healthy populations through partnership, expertise, and applied use of information technology. In the early 1990s STC was one of the first adopters of the value of immunization registries and the data that could be used for decision support to augment clinical practice, targeting the reduction and impact of vaccine preventable disease on children. With the support of physicians, organizations, and policy and vaccine experts, STC’s public health and software professionals led many of the early efforts and best practices to implement statewide registries. The efforts continue today as over 250 million vaccine encounters are retained in the immunization registries of STC and their state public health partners. Increasing the value of these national health data assets is a primary goal of STC through the next decade.
