ATLANTA, Sept. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Liaison Technologies, a recognized leader in cloud-based integration and data management solutions, once again joins health IT organizations across America to celebrate National Health IT Week, marked this year from September 26-30. As clinicians, administrators and researchers increasingly rely on data to drive innovation and improve care, the ability to integrate, manage and share data across the care continuum becomes more critical than ever.
"With patient and other forms of important data flowing in from an expanding number of sources, Liaison's ALLOY Health Platform — the world's first data Platform as a Service (dPaaS) technology — enables secure, compliant interoperability across multiple data formats and standards," said Larry Mieldezis, Executive Vice President of Healthcare Operations for Liaison. "The healthcare and life sciences industries need these capabilities to realize the full value of today's wealth of data to improve the quality and cost of care. We at Liaison are committed to continuing the conversation about healthcare IT's integral role in positive outcomes — a conversation National Health IT Week has been advancing for more than a decade now."
With ALLOY Health, a cloud-based platform, healthcare organizations can more easily integrate, manage, harmonize and share both structured and unstructured data from multiple sources, including social media and wearable fitness trackers, in a secure, actionable and compliant manner. This helps healthcare organizations gain insight from data to meet the "Triple Aim" objectives for high performance as outlined by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement: 1) improving the patient experience of care, including quality and satisfaction, 2) improving the health of populations; and 3) reducing the per capita cost of health care.
Organizations like Georgia Health Connect (GaHC), which was created by the National Center for Primary Care at Morehouse School of Medicine, work with Liaison to provide integrative technology for health systems, hospitals and smaller practices seeking to improve care through the efficient use of data while connecting to state and national-level health information exchange networks. By leveraging ALLOY Health's capabilities, GaHC and its affiliated organizations can tap into a rich reservoir of their patients' data from across the state to uncover new insights and identify trends to improve population health.
The GaHC experience demonstrates how Liaison helps healthcare systems make communities healthier by promoting interoperability, a key focus of National Health IT Week, which encourages "interoperability across the spectrum of care." Liaison is also an industry leader in enabling precision medicine and providing access to big data capabilities that innovators can use to change the "one-size-fits-all" standard of most medical treatments. By giving researchers and caregivers access to quality data from from today's wider range of digital sources, Liaison can play a key role in the search for more personalized, individual, patient-powered treatment strategies.
