IBM® Initiate® Patient - Foundational to Health Information Exchange (HIE)

IBM United Kingdom Limited

To reduce medical waste, proactively improve the health of all people (population health) and enable meaningful use of health information technology (HIT), healthcare organizations are shifting from an application centric view to a patient-centric view. Patient-centric care places the patient at the center of care as opposed to a single physician or technology. It’s difficult to achieve a patient-centric view of information because the patient has data residing in disparate systems.

In a patient-centric environment information is available at the point of care regardless of location; this means improved quality of care, transparency to costs and outcomes and a more predictive healthcare system.

Your organization can accelerate your HIE implementation by relying on proven foundational components to facilitate cross-domain information sharing. Information Management solutions like IBM Initiate Patient deliver the value you need now, with the extensibility to expand to support future projects.
