WASHINGTON, March 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Amida Technology Solutions, a Maryland-based open source software development company, today announced the fourth release of their data reconciliation engine, or DRE. The DRE is an infrastructure component that accepts data in a variety of formats and consolidates it into an easy-to-use structure. The DRE enables value-added services like data interoperability, business intelligence, predictive analytics, and – in healthcare – risk identification and care coordination.
Amida also announced that Scott Gould, former deputy secretary of the US Department of Veterans Affairs, has joined their strategic advisory board. Alec Ross, formerly senior advisor for innovation to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Sonal Shah, the executive director of the Beeck Center for Social Impact and Innovation at Georgetown University, will support the company's reach into public and public-private markets. Stanford University Professor Dan Boneh, one of the country's leading experts on cryptography, will advise the company on cybersecurity.
Chantale Yokmin Wong and Alicia Phillips Mandaville have joined the company in senior management roles. Ms. Wong brings over 20 years of experience in economic development, finance, and administration. Most recently she was vice president for administration and finance at the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC). Ms. Mandaville is a pioneer in the use of data for public investment in emerging economies, and has over 15 years of experience in data-driven resource allocation, international economics, global development, and diplomacy. She also comes from MCC, where she was the chief strategy officer.
"Amida is opening the aperture of what it means to collect, assemble, consolidate, reconcile and package data," explained co-founding CEO Peter L. Levin. Levin is the former chief technology officer at the Department of Veterans Affairs, where he spearheaded the Blue Button Initiative. "Patient-centered models of care are a terrific example of that, and we're continuing to expand our codebase in health. We're also taking a broader view, because secure data interoperability is a core capability for every enterprise – public or private – in a networked economy that exchanges data about people."
The latest release of the DRE includes software adapters for Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR), which were built in close collaboration with Amida's commercial partners MedicaSoft and Medecision. "We have been working with Amida since their inception, and their FHIR components will help us keep our clients at the leading edge of secure data exchange," said MedicaSoft CEO Mike O'Neill. MedicaSoft provides software solutions for healthcare providers and patients. O'Neill went on to say, "Their software is top flight, and their services are excellent."
Medecision's President and CEO Deborah Gage said, "We have been astonished by the quality, speed, and customer-care focus of the Amida team." Medecision is a leading provider of population health and risk management solutions. Gage added, "Amida has become one of our most important technology partners. It's no surprise to us that they have been able to attract this level of talent to their company, and we're pleased to be part of their growth."
