Improves decision making with consolidated patient view through a facility-wide vendor-neutral repository of all relevant health data
Healthcare organizations are beginning to realize that the real value of health IT is comes not only from the use of its applications but also from understanding of the data.
Today structured data stored in proprietary systems are not shared, making care coordination, real-time analytics and knowledge discovery difficult.
EHR data is usually stored in different information systems, in unstructured form and in different vendor-dependent data formats.
Health data are owned by the vendor and not by the health organization, and even the smallest change to the data schema or core functionality costs inordinate amounts of money and usually requires a long wait as well.
Vendor-dependent technologies (monolithic healthcare applications offered by mega-vendors) are not designed for data outliving the application and as such are making lifelong health records difficult.
When health organizations want to switch to a new vendor, the changeover costs related to the data are massive and the risks so great that this consideration alone paralyzes them for years with the current ineffective solution.
Healthcare providers need to stop thinking of holistic solutions as products, and think instead of the ‘solution’ as a platform-based process unfolding in time, in which they mandate the standards used, and are able to incrementally buy or build each new piece following financial ability and clinical priority.
Disrupt existing monolithic IT solutions by providing a modular architecture thus enabling the development of next generation healthcare IT solutions, apps, portals and new business models.
Vendor-neutral structured clinical data repository (CDR) designed not only for exchanging clinical data, but for real-time, transactional data storage and retrieval required to build full-blown clinical applications
Build on community sourced clinical data models (openEHR) with an integrated clinical data repository, providing the API and foundation for developers to build semantically interoperable applications, enterprise clinical information and apps for modern mobile devices.
The Think!EHR Platform™ modular approach relies on the platform concept, which separates definition of clinical content, semantics, workflows, guidelines, checklists and clinical decision support rules from the software.
Using the tools which are part of Think!EHR Platform™, the healthcare providers can easily adapt to rapid and constant changes in healthcare and its impact on health data. The availability of consistent clinical data across applications helps professionals deliver better care while enhancing research capability.
