DURHAM, N.C., March 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Validic, the health care industry's leading digital health platform, announced today an alignment with health information technology supplier Cerner Corp. to enable their access and connectivity to patient-generated data from clinical and fitness devices and applications.
Cerner is a global leader in health information technologies that connect people, information and systems at more than 18,000 facilities worldwide. Recognized for its technology innovation, Cerner solutions assist clinicians in making care decisions and enable organizations to manage the health of populations.
Using Validic's digital health platform, Cerner will be able to integrate clinical, fitness, wellness and nutritional data into the patient's personal health portal, HealtheLife℠. With the patient's consent, that information will be sent to their electronic medical record, giving nurses and physicians visibility to their health on a daily basis. This access to actionable, patient-generated data continues Cerner's focus and commitment to offering a suite of solutions that support personalized health care and enables individuals and populations to improve their overall health.
"Cerner is committed to working with our clients to create a future where the health care system works to improve the well-being of individuals and communities. To be successful, it is critical to provide access to actionable data on a regular basis, not just what's collected when someone goes to the doctor," said Brian Carter, senior director and general manager, personal health, Cerner. "Given Validic is device- and platform-agnostic, our alignment provides a much broader reach to clinical and wellness data to help propel our digital health strategy to health care organizations we serve, including the acceleration of remote patient monitoring, telehealth, and wellness initiatives."
"Cerner's innovative technologies connect people and systems around the world within and outside of the provider setting," said Ryan Beckland, CEO and co-founder, Validic. "In working with Cerner, Validic bridges the data gap among its health care stakeholders and the clinical devices, fitness wearables, and patient applications they need to provide actionable insights and in-depth patient engagement. Working with a leader like Cerner, we are able to help deliver its connected health strategies into the hands of clients, and help fuel the exciting industry transformation to more accountable, value-based health care delivery."
